How much clearance do you figure you have in the front and rear?<p>I've scraped the underside of the front end (OEM body kit) and my tailpipes (OEM add ons, purely cosmetic), but here in the mountains of VT we're not dealing with the most ideal roads for any sort of agressive driving. Heck, getting into and out of my driveway requires some attention...<p>Looking at some of the cars out there with full kits from Evolve or MS Designs, or even just the Heico front lip, I can't really tell how much clearance there is, especially on the cars that have body kits and are lowered, but it doesn't look like a whole lot.<p>Thinking about going to 18's for the summer, but will have to lower to get the look I want. If I do that, am I just going to end up scraping the hell out of my car?<p>Thoughts? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: For those who have lowered their V50? (surfer_bill)

you could move to a flatter state, don't drive into the driveway any more. but if you do go with a lowered ride and front bumper , it would be wise to get a urathane one like evolves, this can actually rub a little vs fiberglass. I wouldn't add 18s to an awd UNLESS you lower it, or it will look like a monster truck.
