is this really the case? completly upsetting... i was about to buy some megans myself.

let us know if there's any news on this. what's the point of the fancy front adjustment if it doesnt net any additional travel?

I was also wondering if anyone knew if they changed the BC racing coilovers as well? I heard they were made by the same company (correct me if I'm wrong)

This belongs to the guy who works for megan on the MINI coilovers....his are all the way down....but his are 10mm longer than any one else. But still....10mm isnt much.

Realize how small 195/45/16 is though That plays a bit of a part in the wheel gap for sure

If it wasn't raining I'd go put on my Superleggeras that have 205/40/17s on there to see the difference.

yeah, put the 17's on and see what that's like. when i put my 16's on i see gap but i know it's not because im riding high, just the wheel size and tire dimensions compromising the super low look.
