bmw e30 convertible

hey i am kinda new to this forum, i am looking to lower my 88 325ic not quite sure whether to go eibach or h&r lowering springs, and bilstien or koni. or to spend a bit more and get coilovers. From all my research everyone is saying ground controls are the way to go, I also could get ksports for around 1200 but have heard mixed reviews, any advice is greatly appreciated. I want my car to be low but with these roads in Canada i dont know if thats the best idea ahah. I am just scared that if i get lowering springs the drop wont be enough

Eibach are shiite (too soft), I'll just say that. I'm running Intrax Springs and Koni Adjustable front and rear shocks, and they are great. Coilovers are a waste of money on a vert if you ask me. Just remember that the rockers are lower already on the verts, so getting them (to look) super low is pretty easy. I'm low enough as it is with mine, but I'm still going to put drop hats on in the spring.

hey thanks for the advice it looks good hopefully by summer mines lookin like it hahaha btw what size rims are on it, i put a set of 17s that i had lying around just to see what they would look like if i had a picture u would die, looks like a monster truck, i could fit four fingers between the tire and the fender, anyway in terms of bilstein sports and h&r springs i think tuner motorsports has best price, i also came across these ---

Those tires are 205/50 15's on 15" x 6" rims. Put the same size tire on a 15"x7" or 7.5" rim and you'd be happy.

Also, Essex is actually who brought my intrax springs in for me for my vert.
