No one makes kits for us. GXP Venom did a good job with airbags though. If you can afford that it'd probably be the best way to go.

if you lower your car on 20'*, you'll run into the same rubbing issues as with 22'* stock. GXP Venom has 18'* and air bags and his car looks really good and he doesn't have issues.

IIRC, you can run 20s at stock height, though.

The problem with 20" wheels is that you're going to impact the performance and drivability of the car somewhat. An 18" wheel won't affect your performance noticeably, won't give you a cobblestone ride, and will still fill out the wheelwells visually. And since the car was offered with 18"* from the factory, you don't have to worry about hurting your bearings due to an oversized wheel.
