I have Eibach's anti-roll sways and Pro Kit lowering springs on my car with the factory GFX. My car is between 1.2-1.3" lower both front and rear. I have had no scrapes, no bumps or any other parking / speedbump problems. Like others have said, just give yourself room when parking.

I have had to get back into my car a couple of times to pull farther into a space because I was WAY too far from the curb.

It is easier to get too far away now then it was before. The difference in height makes it look like you're closer than you actually are.

Lower the car, you'll thank yourself later. The ride quality suffers a little bit, but it's no worse than a stock Corvette, (its bump happy now) but if you want a car that makes the road its bee-och, with no more body roll and a look that fits the rest of the car, go for it.
