I can see the pics (on my PC anyway).

I've got the Eibachs on the same car as in the pics (well, inky blue estate, 2002 model) which had sports suspension (-15mm drop from non-sports models). The Eibachs are another -15mm and you can see the difference, but probably only if it's your car and/or you're a Passat fan. Rides great and isn't too low for speed humps, though YMMV here as different councils seem to have differing ideas about how high speed humps should be …. In the main though, no problems day to day.

It's not too low TBH, my wife has a Highline Estate running 17's and she has the same spring/shock set and hers sits lower.

Yeah the bottom pic was just me messing with pic, the arms etc are HD Meyle ones fitted by previous owner. I'll be checking alignment etc when I fit the coilies but I think it's just the angle of the pic Gaz.

Just do it the b12-pro kit is excellent. Low is just looks tbh the real benefit is vastly improved handling dynamics. I would hold to a bet on certain given roads the b12-pro kit would out perform almost any silly slammed setups.

Had the kit on a B6 and my current T5, would have fitted it on the B5.5 if I had kept it longer.
