How low do you think they will drop? and they look a little beat, or is that because "the paint is pealing"??

You're overthinking this. BC's are solid. They can be rebuilt. The price & included hardware is right. How they look doesn't matter as long as they are fully functional.

will you be going to shows, taking off a wheel, raising it up and showing off how clean and polished your coilovers are? or will you be driving it low and/or driving the piss out of it?

Here is my car on BCs. All the way down in the front about 3/4" more to go in the rear. They won't let you truly slam the car but they will get you pretty low.

I sent the guy 2 pm's. One on the 8th when we I started this thread, and one on the 10th. I thing the guy didn't want to deal with shipping cause he sold it to a local buyer instead of me.

Yah, NAM marketplace is tough. Most of the time it takes a week to get a response from the user and then they almost always tell you that it already sold somewhere else.

I've run into that issue countless times over there.
