    Looks good!
    I quite like the high ride height myself but each to their own.
    Got any more mods planned?

    I actually have a C4 model from 2011. This is a car for more relaxed than dynamic driving. It handles great during side wind. I think the suspension is way too soft. Change of springs will make the ride more on a firm side.
