It's not that because I don't have a Flickr account and I can see them OK. Weird!

Managed to get to the pics. It doesn't work when you click on the link in tapatalk, but worked when I opened from a web browser. Weird.

Wheels look good mate. Surprised it's 15mm lower than (R) height. Thought it would be lower. Based on the side on pick I'd prob drop the rear down another 5mm or so to match the front, purely for aesthetic reasons.

Glad it handles well. Would you say an improvement on stock R, or as good?

Most people lower their car only for the look and their goal is not to optimize the handling to the fullest.

Also I don't like the look when a car is very low. So from the beginning I wanted to lower the car max another 15mm.

So Kean Suspension first lowered the car 15mm in the front. Then put the wheels on 4 seperate scale's and then they started lowering the rear mm by mm to find same weight distribution between the front and rear like it was originaly. The RCZ originally is also lower in the front compered to the rear. If I lower the rear with 5 extra mm the weight will go more to the rear and that woulds change the handling for the worse. So with this setup the weight distributon front/rear didn't change. Peugeot Sport have spent some much time to find the right set-up and weight distribution for the RCZ R, it would a shame to undo that.

In the same time they balanced the car left/right weight to 50/50 (included my body weight). So now when I drive my RCZ on the track it's balanced perfectly :thumbup:

If I would follow your advice I could have bought a KW V1 or V2, but when you spend the money for custom made coilovers it would be a waste of the money if you don't set-up the car correctly. I think KW would think it was also a waste of their time to make me this kit :D
