Lower that is, and wider. <p>Eibach pro-kit + 15mm rear/ 5mm front. Still rub up front but not horrible. The car handles amazingly. I compared it to the difference between a normal s60 and an stock R (comfort mode). So the difference is very prominent without noticeably hindering driveability or comfort.<br>Enjoyin the twisties <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>thanks a lot to the Mikes for helpin me out.<br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-503.facebook.com/ip005/v17/100/89/12800796/n12800796_30765503_7652.jpg" BORDER="0"><br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-502.facebook.com/ip005/v17/100/89/12800796/n12800796_30765502_7222.jpg" BORDER="0"><br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-506.facebook.com/ip005/v17/100/89/12800796/n12800796_30765506_8828.jpg" BORDER="0"><br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-505.facebook.com/ip005/v17/100/89/12800796/n12800796_30765505_8445.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: S60R reaching new levels (Elmoworld)

looks great --- perfect stance IMO ---- a rear or track spec set will be a nice compliment. I think Johnann said it well - those upgrades make the R feel half it's weight ...... and I second that from first hand exp. <p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: S60R reaching new levels (blf)

yeah that's true. the first impression i had was that the car became much lighter on its toes. the turning is lighter, and of course around turns it has lost the bulk of its heavy 4dr feel. <p>thanks for the comments <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: S60R reaching new levels (BOOSTED S60R)

Are you guys having any problems with the struts with a 1.5+ inch drop? I come from the Honda Tuner world( no jokes please) <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> and anything over that it was recommended to change out the shock/struts! But to me that would seem difficult since the 4C consists from the stock setup!

Re: S60R reaching new levels (Token Blk Guy)

<br>You have to live with the stock struts/shocks for the simple reason is that there are NO others to choose from

could you please post a picture of either 5mm or 10mm FRONT spacers WITH 15mm REAR spacers, and take the photo directly from the front or back to show TRUE perspective?<p>thanks. i see all these photos of people who add spacers but they are all taken from the side or an angle, and i cant really get a good idea of what it looks like.<BR><BR>

Re: S60R reaching new levels (Elmoworld)

Looks great. I would be worried with the sport/"scraping" kit that it would make the front lip issues worse. Had any trouble with them yet?
