No I took it to a garage that specialized in suspension etc. They aligned the wheels for me afterwards too

Here are a few pics

It's very dirty, not been washed for 5 weeks (*ashamed face*)
It's noticeably lower, but with no sacrifice to comfort. If you want lower then go with 40mm although the suspension will feel harder I expect :)

This is mine on 40mm H&R stance is greatly improved, handling is alot better through the corners, ride comfort is still ok. ImageImageImageImage

Both cars nicely done ,the lower stance suits the car without the need to wear ur skip hat backwards and a pile of gold chains . If it doesn't compromise the ride and handles well enough might be tempted maself...
