Some aero parts and maybe intake will be done beforehand.

If I decide to lower, I would probably go with just springs as I don't see dropping more than an inch.
i just don't like how it looks with no gap at all

Agreed, you also retain some its functionality as a regular car... Drops are nice but they become impractical mighty quick...

I haven't researched anything yet.

Tanabe 1.6 inch fronts look too low for me, so probably will have to wait for Lexus F sport springs, as they offer 1 inch front and back.

But again if they cost insane money I'll wait for something else.

Lowering cars looks great, but I just couldn't justify doing it unless all roads I would ever drive on are smooth, without potholes, and also don't ever have large speed bumps. I just don't think its very practical for a car you actually want to drive around regularly.

What size did you go with? Stuck with 18 or 19, or did you pony up and go 20'?

Also, what tire size?

I've decided 19 were the way to go, as wanted set up to be as close to OEM F-sport as possible for better handling.

Specs:
19x8.5 R19 +38 front (11.1 kg)
19x9.5 R19 +45 back (11.6 kg)

Tyres OEM sizes:
235/40 R19
265/35 R19

I think it looks great with the combination of silver paint and the rims. I don't understand why so many want to lower the car. It looks great as is and if you live in an area with high curbs, speed bumps or pot holes it is pretty much a recipe for disaster. So I agree with you, leave well enough alone!!!!!

It looks cool to lower the car, but it is not practical. The RC isn't necessarily made for people who want a practical car. I think it totally depends on if you use the car as a daily driver or more of a weekend fun car.
