I prefer the HAS kits, not for the adjustability but the additional rear spring makes a difference. I find the rear of the car rides perfectly but there is no doubt the front is a little more harsh

I have the MSS on full low on the front, which probably isn't low enough visually if you ask me, but it does ride very well and I haven't had any issues with speed bumps.

I think the lower stance with additional spacers makes a massive difference to the look of the car.

I would say go ahead on balance, it seems like you're aware of the pit falls and not going to be lowering super aggressively which is the way to go for a daily driver
Excellent, thank you. (I love the stance of your car!)

Everyone covered everything above but I'll just add that the front of the G80 responds very well to lowering from an aesthetics standpoint, in my opinion. Makes it look more sleek and not to bulky if you know what I mean.

Mine is dropped on KW HAS. If I had to guess I'd say I dropped it 1 inch all around. I did not take measurements, but it's prettyich setup at the lowest recommended front setting and the highest rear setting.

I think all the good members here actually gave you reasons to lower vs not lowering (as you had asked) LOL.... that says alot. Plus they are all owners of the car with real pictures too.

Obviously when Ive lowered cars with magnetorheological dampers where things are sublime but the G8X will not let you down.

I go for a more aggressive drop but getting any type of HAS set up will allow for fine tuning.

Only the Vettels on the board will claim that lowering the car will cause incredible loss in performance LOL. You will be just fine in the real world and gain a ton of form vs the OEM 4x4 look.

MSS HAS Kit (used the same one for both cars)
H&R 15mm spacers square
