I'd like to eventually lower mine as well, but everytime I think about it I keep having nightmares about the speed bumps at work. I need to go to an oil-bag or air-bag suspension if I do it. So I just keep saving up. But I may just bite the bullet and kick the factory springs to the curb in favor of some Eibachs.
And I'm DEFinitely in favor of tint! Got it for the first time on my '09, then felt like I was swimming in a fishbowl when I got my '11 (which I intend to keep).
Check with elcomalalo. I don't want to volunteer his services, but he's real good with PhotoShop. I think lowering your car has got to be easier than "painting" it in PS.
