How's the ride after you lowered it? I'm thinking about lowering mine and replacing the OEM 19" wheels with aftermarket 19"s to try to preserve some of smoothness. Is it harsher now? I know when I lowered my E500, I originally thought that it didn't feel any harsher but I was kidding myself. It stiffened up quite a bit.

It is a customers car. I just drove it around the block. Might of felt a tad stiffer but looks much better and you can also raise it up close to factory height before lowering.
