Show us your lowered MINI!

Recently there have been alot of threads opened about suspension setups, ride height etc etc. "what springs will give me what drop and on what wheels" etc etc etc.
So lowered mini owners, post up following the layout below to show people what you are running and how you got your ride height etc.

So basically, show us your lowered MINI and explain what it is lowered on and wheel size!

Suspension: Lowered on KW variant 1 coilovers. At least 100mm lower than stock anyway.
Wheels: Kei Racing Force 10- 18x7.5. offset Front 33mm and rear is 43mm.
