What is the purpose of getting an Acura TL lowered?
I see a lot of people getting their cars lowered, what exactly is the point of that? Does it help? Could I lower my Acura TL?
Answer provided by
That’s a fair question—and one that seems to have some conflicting answers. Practically speaking, the only significant purpose for getting your Acura TL lowered would be for the visual appeal.
There is a line of thought that with a lowerd vehicle, you may see some performance improvements, such as improved handling, greater aerodynamics, better fuel economy, etc. However, the extent to which you’ll notice or receive these benefits is more than a little uncertain.
With a high-performance vehicle and a talented technician, then yes—you could notice a significant improvement in handling, speed, and resistance to rolling over.
