If you got the cash, coilovers are the way to go. Coilover options are H&R Street Performance, Bilstein PSS10, KW V3 & Street, KSport Kontrol, and D2 Racing. If not, H&R super sports springs for more aggressive drop, or for milder drops H&R sport or Eibach springs

I've got 8% limo but that's cause I wanted to match the pano roof. go 15-25%, but it gets damn hot and sunny in sactown so limo wouldn't be that bad. I wouldn't get gunmetal gray for the tails imo. Not sure how you planned on pulling off that look with no paint though. vinyl overlay will still give you shades of red. You'd need to custom fab the lens so it's clear, then smoke it to get what I think you're after.

Offsets looks way off, the rear in particular.

yeah, noticed that too, but wasn't sure if it was the camera angle.

If it's not the angle, then don't drop it cause you'll end up slamming your fenders with every bump and pot hole.

How can you guys tell? Is it that the tires appear to be flush with the fender lip? Please forgive the dumb question.

when the springs compress, the wheels will go up and camber slightly inward. If the wheel is sticking too far out from the fender (which by the picture it looks like), it'll hit the fender instead of tuck inside.

Car look nice, 35% tint all around will look classy and tail light go with a medium dark (cherry red) or a light tint and paint is the only way.

I wonder if you rub? On a C63, the rears are 9.0 wide with a 54 offset. For fun, I installed my 19 x 9.5 with et 41 Brabus reps from my w204 onto my C63 and it looks like it would rub.
