How do I get this?

I have and '89 325i that is pretty much stock with 14" bottlecaps. I've come up with an image of what I'd like to do with it:



(This is not my car. Mine is black and 4-door. I got the pic off the web. Thanks/apologies to whoever owns it.)

A few questions:

- Can anyone say how much it's been dropped, and how can I acheive that?

- I Photoshopped on some BBS wheels. Would these be 15's or 16's to look like this?

Thanks.

Looks like the trunk is full of shit, and the car is stock height to me. Major gap up front.

Those would be 16's.

that would be because the car is on the uphill incline

H&R Sport springs on a slant would look like that. Buy those if you want similar height.

That's exactly what someone on Bimmerforums said. Plus Bilstein Sport shocks.

By "on a slant" you mean . . .?

Oh and BTW I've just been reading the Bilstein vs Koni thread so I don't think I'd go with "Billies".
