First time poster, long time reader here.
So I've owned my '06 wrx for nearly 3 years. I bought it used with 28k miles on it, the original owner had it lowered 1" and 1.5" front and back respectively.
Its rather stiff but I love how it handles in the twisty sections, its never been an issue much, I just mind driveway entrances/exits and speed bumps, i have no problem taking my time crawling over them.
Two weeks ago my condo had a few patches of asphalt patches (cracks) then sealed and the parking spots repainted. They also had the speed bumps redone. The speed bumps got bigger but I negotiated them just fine, now that all the final touches are going on I discovered yesterday that they didn't think the speed bumps were big enough so they enlarged them again, now I can't go over them without severely scraping the undercarriage of my car.
I ran into the construction guys and they told me that they knew they were too big and that they suggested the resize them. So in the mean time what do i do? I'm not even sure they are gonna make them smaller.
Im not on good terms with HOA, they're all old 80yo nazi's and the president has always had it out for me since I moved in 4 years ago. So me personally speaking with them doesn't sound like a good option. Its obvious that the bumps cause damage as they're all scraped up after just two days.
Do i have a legal leg to stand on as they are damaging my car? I can't avoid them, there is only one entrance/exit to my condo area and I have to go over two of them.
I'd estimate they're 5-6" high x 16long and cover curb to curb with about a 6 inch gap in the middle for drainage. I looked at the dimensions of the ones on city streets and they're 3in max!
Any experience with this issue or any ideas at all please feel free to share.
Edit: I also thought about tire pressure but they're all at 34psi as of Wednesday.
