View Poll Results: Is there a big difference between KW V3's(dampening) to H&R coils for the Xi.
Suck it up, break the wallet a little and do it right once.
Dampening isn't really that important get the H&R's or V1's (height only)
Springs and shocks would do the job (1 inch front 0.8 inch rear)
Don't bother too much bs to deal with when lowering Xi.
Hey guys its been a while since anyone has heard from me, but I just wanted to post a couple of pictures of the new wheels I got on my E46 325Xi. I know its probably not worth it but Im just curious to see what I can make of an Xi because to my understanding its not the easiest bmw to work with.
Sorry for the crappy quality in pictures but they were taken at spur of the moment by an iPhone. A little info they're 7 series rims from a 745. No spacers or anything was used in putting them on. I'm using stock wheels bolts and center caps.
I currently rub on the back only on rough roads because my rear shocks are shot hence why it looks like theres a smaller gap at the back. Im thinking of getting coil overs at some time in the future but I was just hoping that prices would drop a little because I'm looking for KW Variant 3's as they seem to be one of the best available on the market for the Xi but quite pricey. I think i just gotta suck it up and break the wallet a little bit to get the exact stance that Im looking for.
Please I'm open to anyone's opinions and comments on what you guys think of it so far. Ideas such as what I should do along with coil overs such as camber kits, spacers, wider tires, etc.... I was looking for more of a hella flush look. I think that to lower it just to get rid of the gap i may need to roll my fenders because of the wide offset.
Sorry for the bible of writing but here are the pictures enjoy.
