100mm at any point under the car

generally superlows are the perfect legal height.

But he did say it has to fit the bill with his insurance. You may want to look at your policy very closely before doing anything at all. All it takes is for one assessor to look at your written-off vehicle and find something that you had not informed them of, and find a way to link it to the accident... And guess who foots the bill?

Legally, 100mm to the ground as far as I know. According to your insurance though, you will have to speak to them yourself.

Insurance just requires the car to be street legal, but it can get complicated. If any modification contributed to a reason for a claim, they may knock it back, legal or not.

100mm is the general rule of thumb, but it is actually measured at your headlights. The centre of the headlight has to be at least 600mm from the ground for pre 1990 and 575mm post 1990....I think....

I believe kings superlows are the lowest legal height. For me and mine they are low enough and do the job nicely being a good mix between being low and still riding pretty decently.
