Car looks great, even not lowered I gotta say, but lowering really finished it off.

Love the wheels.

You mind sharing details such as sizes of wheels and tires and offsets so I can achieve the same fit?

Thanks

To all w/ lowering links (specifically Ghost),

Do the links lower the stock height in Comfort Mode and then in Sport Mode, goes the regular 0.5 lower than the new low?

or

Is it stock height in Comfort Mode and then goes, say 1.5 lower when in Sport Mode?

I saw a post that confused me. I thought it was the former, but the post said the latter.

Great question.

I want to lower mine as well.

I dont think the brand of the links will matter.

Link is a link, just changes the set point of the suspension travel. If its anything like the S class, the travel amount and behaviou\r should be exactly the same.
But the base start point, or height level as compared to the factory links, will determine how much lower the car will sit compared to stock.

its actually not too bad. that photo makes it look lower because of the shade over the top part of the tires.

heres a comparison photo of stock-comfort (top), links-comfort (middle), and links-sport (bottom), accompanied by a couple photos i took in the past couple of days.

Looks fantastic.

I want to lower the same.

Just not sure if I want to put the 22's on her or leave the stock 20's with the 15 mm H&R spacers I have.
