Re: cutting my springs...
Like Rick said, cut half a coil and really maximum cut 1 coil, what will happen if you cut more (to have it lower) is dangerous as i know the xf springs will not be stiff enough and when you say do 70km/h and you hit the brakes your car will shift the weight over the front wheels but with the cut springs they will compress way too quick and if you look under you guard in the front you can see the bump stop it's about 3-4 cm, now ... regardless of how good you are with a brake pedal or how good the tyres are your brakes will lockup as soon as your car hits the bumpstop, also at every speed bump your car will bottom out on the bumpstops and eventually you will crack the chasis.
