    Default Coilovers and ground clearance on front splitter

    Im running coilovers on 18's with a clearance of around 11cm front splitter to the road. Its about the height of the vectra key opened up. I haven't experienced any issues with car parks speed bumps etc but then the car doesnt look that low

    Just wondering how low other people have gone and been able to get over speed bumps. I read the max height a speed hump can be is 10cm. Anyone gone lower and how to you get over humps

    I'd like to go a bit lower

    Mine 85mm on splitter and I have no issues, but that's on PI springs so I'd go lower on coilovers. I can't at min due to our drive but there's every type of speed bump my end and never an issue, its just parking and kurbs that are the issue.
