<strong>Over a year ago my dealership received an official statement from the importer that lowering an Alfa (which is equiped with VDC) more then 2 centimeter can turn the VDC into a dangerous system instead of being a safety feature.
Pulling the fuse is no option since the 'VDC-fuse' (Fuse # F42) is also used for the ABS control unit.
A lot of Alfa's have been lowered without problems, but if you want to be sure that VDC won't be your enemy: don't lower your Alfa too much</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">This is the standard answer you get from dealers in New Zealand when enquiring about lowering.
I'd be happy with 2cm actually, it'd be just right IMHO.
