Ground control street ?

hey guys i have read so many threads, i am lookin to lower my car, but i dont want a harsh ride. somethin a bit more stiff then stock and for it to tuck the tires a bit. i looked at the ground control street kit, its 1089.00 US, from ground control. it does not have camber plates and all that. but basically i only drive the car on the street no track. would this set up be good? and to add i am running 235/35/19 x8.5 width front, 275/30/19 x9.5 width rear .2001 M3

If you want to retain ride comfort, you might want to retain the stock shocks and install slightly lower springs. In my opinion, your best option would be H&R Sport springs.

They'll lower your car 1.2" in the front and 0.5" in the rear.

Any more than that and you will need stiffer shocks which will reduce ride comfort.
Same for coilovers: Even at the softest setting, they will be much stiffer than stock.

Let me know if you have any questions,

Karim.
