I would imagine it could if you had an issue caused by the lowering springs. In the US, the manufacture can’t deny a warranty claim for an unrelated issue if the vehicle has been modified.

I showed the pictures to my wife and she thought it looked great and said go ahead and lower it so it looks like I'll do it some time next year. I still need to install the Koni's, Flyin' Miata springs, and sway bars on my 2020 MX-5 though as they have been sitting on a shelf all year.

My set of H & R's has been sitting in my garage for several months...one of these days.

Your car looks fantastic before and after. What size are your wheels?

Personally I got the CX30 so I have extra ground clearance as my last car would scratch the front bumper all the time. Now I got some piece of mind when I'm in tricky spaces. But I do think lowering looks good.

Got the H&R Lowering Springs installed last month and finally getting around to updating this thread. I think it looks “normal” now. Handling was already amazing before the springs but corners much better with no body lean post install.

Honestly though, I didnt get the springs for the handling, just to fix the awkward lifted look which I wasnt a fan of.

I agree that it looks MUCH better without those absurd gaps between tires and fenders. Even the plastic cladding looks less clownish without the big gaps!

I'd be tempted to do the same, except that the 8 inches of ground clearance was the most important factor for us in deciding between the 3 and the CX30 since we tend to go off pavement from time to time.

Now if only there were a dash button that would raise and lower it on demand!

It is amazing how time changes every thing, I was 21, just got married the dealer gave me fantastic financing on our very first two door black Ford Anglia if you did not have a black cr you were thought to be unusual.
it was only 10 hp ut a hot car at the time
It was not long untill i filled in the wheel arches so only 50 % of the wheel was showing, now i am 85 my CX30 looks like it is ready for Beverly Hills.
by the way we all dropped the rear end with bigger/ longer "U" boat and blocks of iron.
I love the height and the pictures says it all😏
and I love the colour .

I bit the bullet and ordered a set of springs for my CX. Can't wait to drop it to a European/Japanese specs :cool:
You ordered the H&R Springs or an OEM set from the European market? Just curious - like you I want the height of the latter set. I think the H&R are an inch or so lower than the Euro OEM stuff.

Yeah, but I think the 1.3" drop on the H&R website is a drop from the stock Euro height, not the NA height. Every photo of the H&R springs I've seen looks quite noticeably lower than the stock Euro heights.
