Slammed is great for cornering, race track and looks.
Slammed is bad for speed bumps, driveway ends, snow, pot holes, parking spots with cement blocks.

.... and I add, your back and bottom too.
SLAMMED almost always means a hard and bouncy ride.
'Not very practical for a daily driver.

At least in the Honda world, "Slammed" means:
  • Suspension screwed down to or very near the stops
  • Over sized wheels which are too large in diameter and/or too wide for the vehicle (and the poor tires which are "stretched" to fit)
  • An enormous fart-can muffler
  • A completely worthless monster spoiler on the rear trunk lid
  • A gazillion watt audio system

There is a marked difference between "Tastefully lowered" and "Slammed".

There is a huge difference between tastefully lowered (I'm thinking Richard's car here) and "Slammed". If your car was slammed down to (or near) the suspension stops then "it rides great" would be a physical impossibility. Like I said, slamming is for punks.

While your car is probably perfectly acceptable for track usage, here in New England it would be totally impractical. So, while many will disagree, it's definitely too low for my tastes and my driving environment.

WOW!! It looks Great!
What are you lowered on... Sportkit? S-Tech's? Coilovers? That's got to be at least a 1.8- 2" drop.
Bronze Rota Revs??
