That doesn't answer the question.

Being slammed is inconvenient, risks damage to bumpers and under panels, and compromises performance. Looks are subjective but it's objectively silly.

I'm not slammed honestly. My front lip clearance is probably 3.5 inches.

I drive the car once a week.

Using a car based off of a family sedan as a track car is also objectively silly when there are much better options out there. To each his own.

For what it's worth, my M3 is pretty low but very rarely scraps on anything since the front and rear overhangs are pretty small. I've never had an issue with this car scraping or being difficult to drive but YMMV.

There's an awful lot going on there, but what sedan is the M3 "based off of"? I'd love to get a cheap parts car.

California??? I almost moved out there for a previous employer. I did a 3 day trip of the SF Bay area and loved it. Then I realized housing is stupid expensive (even worse than Northern Virginia) and passed.

Plus, Cali is broke. I keep getting weird commercials with strange hipsters promoting California. Makes makes the answer easy for me.

Florida> California
