How did I know you would find this thread ?
"Yes", it will fit your car.....I've got it in my wife's '98 328ia (sedan).
I never looked into the exact measurements of the drop, but it is certainly noticeable.
My rear 17" wheel is slightly tucked into the wheel well now and my front must have dropped by at least 1.5 inches.
With the drop, I noticed that my car's original 16" rims (winter setup) now look sort of whimpy and out of place, so I highly recommend upgrading to 17's. Another must upgrade are your RSM's (Rear shock mounts) to accomodate the extra stresses of the slightly more aggresive nature of the BTS Kit.
I would rate this setup about one notch firmer than my old sport suspension, but still very civil.....it's still my wife's car after all.
