My car and this car have the same 16" wheel size but mine has a gap in the rear wheel well. To achieve this look I don't think this guy used new springs, what your opinion?

He probably has different spring pads. Do a search on this forum for 'spring pad'.

Spring pad thickness makes a BIG difference in ride height. I recently changed my pads in the front of my 190e to the thinnest available, 8MM. The front looks much lower than it did before and the ride quality was unaffected.
