Great job. I like the way it looks - and agree with you that it looks as it "should" now. I've always thought the 95+ cars sat a bit too high.

And now for the question I ask everybody who's done this to their Metro: how's the ride? (And, are you used to lowered suspension, or is this your first lowered car?... just to put your answer in perspective )

I plan to do an A-B-A test of lowering my car this year before we run out of good weather.
Latest mods test: 15 mods = 15% MPG improvement: A-B test, 2007 Honda Civic 1.8L, 5-speed
Ecodriving test:
Manual vs. automatic transmission MPG showdown: Nissan Micra 1.6L
