Hi everyone,

I am thinking of purchasing some lowering springs for my 330i. I have the sport suspension and my goal is to get rid of the wheel gap but I DO NOT want the racked look. What are my best options? And the best and least expensive place to buy from (I live in Ottawa)

Thanks in advance.

Wouldn't I already have sport springs since I have the sport package on my car? Or are you referring to a specific brand? I am :confused:

is your tire flash with the fender if it is then the gap must be there since if your tires moves up and down the tire will hit the fender
if your tire is tucked inside the fender then sport springs or coupe springs will eliminate the gap visually.

Im pretty sure aftermarket sport springs are gonna lower your car more than it is right now with OEM SPORT springs.

The BMW OEM sport package does not eliminate your gap all together, as someone explained, it just drops the car 1" or so.

Here you can see my e46 with the OEM Sport Package, if you want to go lower you will need aftermarket lowering springs.

haha, you go through suspension bits fast, anouk. It wasn't a year ago I bought struts and shocks from you.
