Lowered Ride Height !

HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE ! !

OK I just wanted to know everyone's opinion out there on what they think is the safest lowering height of the e36 Bimmers(partically my '94 325i)I'm trying to decide between the Eibach Sportline's or the Apex Sport's.The max drop between the two is 1.7-1.8 inches.I've got 8x18's going on in the spring.
All your opinions or other ideas will be greatly appreciated!
THX,
Alfred

Do they make Sportline's for your car? I heard that the H&R cup kit lowers your car a lot, try looking into those as well.

Apparently,Gamite they do make the Sportlines.Are the H&R Cups used with coilovers?

I HIGHLY recommend the Eibach Sportlines for the E36... offers a really nice drop and most importantly, not a bone jarring ride. On the absolute flip side, DO NOT under any circumstances get any product made by APEX. Many of my friend's have wasted their money on Apex and they ended replacing them with Eibach in the long run. Apex springs sag within 1 year (despite their warranty which they don't even honor) and some have even broken. Not worth the aggrevation.

I got to agree with Randy. Sportlines are the way to go on an e36. I had them on my e36 and loved everything about them. I also had 17"s on mine though, and not 18"s and don't know how they will sit. good luck.
