mine is lowered that top of the wheel is almost visually in line with top of the mudguard arch, about 35mm.
i must say that it was a mistake, but i've decided to live with it. it looks nice and it turns much better. has less oversteer and less body roll, but, when i ride on a road that is a bit sunk on the part that wheels ride and a bit lifted in the middle, i touch the road with the floor of the car. sometimes i touch top of speedbumps. i've also had to have my oil sump welded and new plastic installed once after hitting a leftover brick (size one, oners as we call them here) on a motorway. all other cars driven over it without worries, i could not see it nor avoid it as it just appeared from under the car in front of me.
also, parking is a nightmare. i live in holland, have no idea if you guys would have a similar problems in UK.
