Got my lowering links from FVD Brombacher yesterday as well as some Rennline 15mm spacers all around. The car is only 15mm lower on all settings, but it made a dramatic difference. I'd take it out for some proper photos, but it's pouring out here :(

Also I'm on the Rennline website regarding the spacers. Are you using Panamera fitments? Hubcentric all around?

Mine is 20mm lower now.
That's the max cuz otherwise the link will be too short to connect the two balls when the car is on a lift.
Only on the rear that is (the link on the front is getting longer when lowering it) :)

My new Normal is the old Lowest.
From Normal to Lift is 20mm so total is 40mm of travel.

Have you been out there drivning it hard when it dropps down the extra 20mm in the automatik lowered position at speed...? How does it handle and do you have any scraping against the wheel arches in corners? I would aesthetically like to do this but worried about the effect on driving the car. I did lower my Tesla S and found that it looked great while it was not optimal for handling nor tire ware.......

It handles great, like it already did.
It feels it drives even better but that's just a feeling...
It has electric anti-rollbars so the car is much more stable than an ordinary car, almost no roll.
Also the travel isn't changed so the only reason it could scrape are the spacers.
But it's just fine, no problem whatsoever.

It's been driving wonderfully. Drove through NYC (from Long Island to New Jersey), and if you know anything about the Cross Bronx Expressway...then you know.

Drove it on both normal and 'lowered' settings, which are obviously 15mm lower than factory and it was awesome. When the roads opened up, I naturally switched to sport plus and it was wonderful.

I just can't wait to get some proper wheels, as I'm not the biggest fan of spacers...however, the Rennline spacers that I installed were absolutely without any vibration.

Here's a few more photos, just because:

+1 I've got the bl5000ext - seems like it would be right on the weight limit lifting a Taycan.
Thanks, I’ve been looking at a couple of models. Which of the Taycan do you have, 4s, turbo or turbo S? I have the turbo with 93kwh battery. I looking for using it also with 2017 Range Rover HSE 6td L405 or Vogue as you folks classify it.

I don't have any Taycan yet (Turbo soon!), would be interested to see if Raek has the larger bl7000 or if the bl5000 will lift it OK. I imagine the lift is fairly underrated so it's OK to lift something right on the load limit.

Sorry about the late reply!

It's the 5000 lb capacity version. I've had no issues getting the Taycan or my Macan up on it. Granted, I always reinforce with jack stands...even when my wife's MK1 VW is on it.
