Ive got a 98 328is with all the mods thats in my sig, not a lot, im just gettin started. Wondering if i should get an exhaust or lowering springs next. I just dont know about the lowering because of how low the back already is. I was wondering if i got the lowering springs, what kind of springs does a best job about leveling the front of e36 out to kind of match the height in the back. Dont want any arguments on what springs are better than anyone elses, just want to know if anyone has lowered theirs before, and what springs they used, and how it turned out. These were the springs i was considering:

1. H&R Race Springs (2" in front 1.3" in back)
2. H&R Sport Springs (1.5" in front 1" in back)
3. Eibach Sportline Springs (1.8" in front 1.5" in rear)
4. Eibach Pro-Kit Springs (1.3" in front 1.3" in rear)
5. Tell me your setup....


1. Stromung cat-back exhaust @understeer.com
2. Borla cat-back exhaust
3. Tell me any others........

But yea, i dno what to do because i dont want it to turn out bad or rub or anything with the springs, plus those stromungs and borla exhausts sound nice *mw*

I have the Eibach Pro kit installed... nice drop, and the ride isn't as rough as with H&R. I wouldn't want to go lower than this on the front for city driving.

Im have Bilstein Sport shocks with H&R race springs. Im on 17" ///M 68 rims with the 245/225 staggered and no rubbing issues. the ride is definately on the stiff side but the shocks make the ride so much more stable than stock. (mind u stock had close to 200K on it)

Im running Bilstein with Sportlines. It handles better than stock, but don't know how they compare against the others. I know H&R has a really good line of products.

Also I would go with suspension first before exhaust. Handeling is #1 in my books, everything else is secondary. Well besides maintenance.
