    Beautiful and yes lowering the car on stock changes everything about the car in looks. Way to go!

    That's my problem. It was lowered on factory suspension and it became obviously softer. So I'm thinking that stiffer springs will be my only option with the amount I want my car lowered.

    Honestly i did it for looks. I have no idea if there is a performance benefit. I don’t track the car but I do drive it pretty hard at times and there is no issue with the stability. It just looks much better than the huge gaping gaps.

    Hm, IMO not an easy decision but probably yes. Ferrari Spiders do have always a softer suspension setup than the Coupé‘s, has to do with the body-stiffness. Maybe what Tackleberry wrote can be your way? To go with the Scuderia/16M springs?

    My 2006 spider has 20" wheels and it`s lowered. For better handling, Anderson Germany has installed a new sports suspension. With 1cm spacers it cracked the fender.

    I lowered mine to the European stock height, maybe a half an inch drop, and it looks correct. When I see cars slammed it reminds me of Japanese ricers with large exhausts
