    i know with my hottunning ones you have a helper spring at the bottom of the front coilies. IIRC you can take that out which will give atleast another inch drop. have you got a picture of the coilover?

    if your still on the standard top mounts you could get ones that are adjustable that are basically just a plate so that would give you about another inch or so!

    at the rears have you still got the adjuster in?

    If you take the wheels off you'll be a lot lower

    Mine are FK coilovers and the front is Very Very low and still got a good 30-40mm of adjustment left.
    The rears didn't go so low so removed the adjuster and it sits well now, V low.

    If they are set up properly then handling should be better It'll be hard and uncomfortable though
