I'm lowered on S-Techs (1.5" front dropped) with the wald front lip and I have issues clearing a lot of hills and such, speed bumps arent a problem but a simple drive way can scrape, mine is pretty scratched up right now lol, actually to give you a better idea how low it is, i have a Sony Ericsson W810i from cingular and it will not fit underneath the lip standing up

Ya the slightest drop and you will have clearance problems with the wald lip since it is so big.

Another thing to consider is your wheel setup. Even if the overall diameter is the same or very similar, the car will sit a little higher on bigger wheels, so 18's or 19's will give you just a little extra clearance.

Damn shon your ride always looks so damn gud haha.

I'm sporting a wald lip and I'm dropped on Greddy coilovers. I adjusted them to have about 1.25in drop and I'm doing good but I guess that depends on the areas you are taking your car. Sometimes I scrap, but not that often.
