Default New pics of my XK8 coupe, now lowered!

I just got my Jag back from Shoreline Motoring in Huntington Beach today.
They finished the installation of H&R lowering springs for me.
Here's a pic of my car when I first got it for reference.

And here are pics I took today, with the lowering springs.
I also shaved the side trim (which was a pain) and added 20x9, 20x10 Cache Corsica wheels with a brushed finish a while ago.

Handles better actually.
The car corners flat now.
The ride is a little stiffer, but still very comfortable.

Very tight!! Love the new wheels! I'd suspect going from 18's to 20's would be quite a ride difference. Thanks for sharing the pics!

Sweet! You cleaned up the look alot when you pulled the side moldings. Addition by subtraction!

Very sleek! Big difference! Love the deep-dishes, too!

Though, I have to ask, any rubbing issues?

I saw "lowered" and thought it would like like crap. In fact, it's just the opposite. Looks sharp!

The wheels are 20x9 +19, 20x10 +25 Cache Corsicas, with a brushed face and brushed lip.
Tires are Falken FK452 in the stock 2007 XKR sizing.

There are rubbing issues if I turn into a parking lot too fast, otherwise they are fine.
If I rolled the fenders, they wouldn't rub anymore.

I wonder what a XK convertible would look like lowered?

Can anyone post some pictures.
