proud new owner of a 2011 mazda 3 isport sedan

Hello all! Love my mazda3. Just got it earlier this week and just bought some 18 inch wheels (215/45/18 tires) and I ordered the factory cruise control switches after reading about the install on the forums. I have some questions about lowering springs... thinking about getting the eibach pro-kit or the sport-kit. I don't want to buy new shocks because they are quite expensive and the pro kit is supposed to be good with the stock shocks, but don't lower as much as the sport kit. Anyone have pics of the mazda3 with these springs? Any advice appreciated.... Thanks!

Welcome. Pro Kit is fine with stock shocks, but not WORN stock shocks. Not changing shocks on a car with more than 60K when doing springs isn't something I ever recommend, and I've been doing suspension/mechanic work for getting on to fifteen years.
