I live in a place where snow gets deep and there are some high sidewalk curbs that i gotta go over, not to mention the speed bumps they put on the side streets

worth it if you're into the whole lowered airbag look, definitely not worth it performance-wise though

If it is a DD that lives in a cold climate I'd say no. You will run into problems with valves and lines freezing. I think modifing som coilovers to work would be your best bet if you want the looks of bags without the problems.

Personally I think it looks perfect with the 18" wheels. I don't like the look of lowered cars where the wheels almost touch, or are tucked inside the fenders. Those wheels fill the wheel wells just right.
