Nobody would know your car is a hybrid by the looks of it. :p

Ok, I have to ask. How can you drive that on normal streets? My stock Insight bottoms out daily on driveways etc. I can't imagine driving a lowered version. Can you go over a speed bump?

I've had it installed since last Friday. The springs have settled in and I've driven about 500 plus miles on it (city and freeway) I scraped once coming out of my driveway cuz I didn't angle it correctly driving out. Other than, speed bumps in my neighborhood and grocery store parking lots no issue with clearance. The ride of course is not stock and I expected a little bit of bouncyness to it. I'm used to it though cuz most of my cars were lowered (Prius the latest one).

Interested to hear how you think it rides after a week. If it scrapes the driveway and all that.

I drive like an old lady lol! I'm either driving the speed limit or 5 mph over it. No issues with scrapping other than when I first backed out of my drive way. I forgot to angle my steering wheel but all I scraped was the plastic thing sticking out by the front bumper. Speed bump no issue, I've cleared it several times already.

I guess that's another way to force yourself to not speed. What are you getting mpg wise? :smile_big:

I have the EX model before I was getting roughly about 53 mpg and now average 48 mpg but still hit 50’s sometimes (depends on weather and driving condition)

Looks good. I'm looking to do similar, but not as low. Did you get springs for a Civic sedan or are they Insight specific? (If Civic, then Eibach Pro Kit might be better fit for me). Any camber issues with your drop? One of the pics look like the rear has a bit more negative camber than normal and I dont want to deal with premature inside tire wear. Do you know if rears accept adjustable camber bolts or if adj control arms available? Any knowledge you can share is much appreciated. Thx!

Love the wheels, tint and visors. I'm only 5'-6" and the car already seems low. My wife complains about how low it is compared to her CR-v, I can already hear her screaming at me for looking at your pics (lol). Your ride looks awesome, giving me some ideas.

The springs fit okay? Which car did it say the springs were for? I could only find some that name a specific. I am thinking about getting same springs but 2.0”F/2.0”R for 18-20 Honda Accord
