thanx for the info. Yea I'am scared of scratching the bottom of the Yaris, is it just mostly the speed bumps that you need to be careful on? and also are your windows tinted 35% or 20%? Did you tint the front as well?

LAHAL, It is weird that your Yaris seems lower more than my Yaris.
I got mine lowered also at Toyota Dealership.
Same Spring but with different drop, how interesting

new springs do "settle" or it could be the lighting, are you looking at the ground or the wheel gap?

I am looking at the wheel gap, mine is not as close as LAHAL's wheel gap,
I have some pic posted in the orange mica thread, I think the reason might be my 14" wheel vs the RS 15" even though the dealer do tell me that it needs time to settle.

word. that's the right place to look, I think that the tire overall diameter is the same for both, so maybe it's just lighting playing tricks LOL

Could be the angle it was photographed at too. From a distance, a slight change in camera height could make a big difference.

I see, no wonder it looks differently on the photo with the same spring.

And also on the RS it comes with the side skirt, so that might make it look a little closer to the ground when compared to the LE model that doesn't come with the side skirt.

the side skirts to make the car looks lower then the regular model, and the larger rims also mean that the rims is closer to the gap, but i would say that they should be the same.

SHARP!!!!!!!! Cool wheels too! You need to get some better shots to really show off the car though (that basketball net really doesn't work for me). Try an uncluttered background, about an hour before sunset. You will be surprised at the difference it makes.

No worries bdiu, it's easy. An inexpensive camera can take some great pics. Time of day is the most critical element, along with an uncluttered background. Check out my beach pics from the "Orange" thread. Your ride has great colour and wheels though, no matter how you look at it.

yeah, nice ride, mine will be similar, but a 3dr & lower.

as far as taking pics, think about the outcome while looking at the scene & then in the viewfinder. also, think about the backdrop & objects in it. Industrial settings are good.
