Will the BRS fender flairs drop the car 'visually' ?

In other words, will the fender flairs make my fenders lower, so the gap between wheels and fenders looks smaller?

Any opinions on how they would look with a Kaminari kit?

Why's that?
Seems to me it will make the entire wheel gap smaller, so the wheel will fill it up more...

check this pic, the car looks lower than stock, because the wheel gap looks smaller.

Or is this car dropped with springs already?

the car has bags - so it can sit 1/2 off the ground or a full foot off the ground... I think we raised it to aproximately stock height when the pictures were took for the fender flairs thumbsup

Will the fender flares actually make the wheel gap look smaller or are they aligned with the inner edges of the fender?
I think the wheel gap looks a bit smaller, that would make the wheels 'fill' the wheel gap better. So it looks lowered even though it isn't

Am I still making sense? eek

I was editing this post while Isaac was replying to my original post in which I asked what 'bags' are..

BAGS are AIR BAGS... the car has an air compressor in the trunk

when you "BAG THE CAR", its like replacing the suspension with baloons - you let the air out, the car goes down - you use the compressor to add more air, the car goes up.

the bad thing about BAG'n your car would be that if you ran over some serious debree on the road, it COULD pop the bags (as much it something this serious could also pop your tire)... or if someone knew you had bags and took a pocket knife to your car - they could stab the BAG and render you basically useless untill you got the car towed and fixed thumbsdown
