Have to change my springs, should I droop it?

I have a cracked spring in the rear drivers side. I want to change my springs but I am wondering if I should buy some lowering springs instead of stock springs. I live in Montreal, so I am wondering if anyone else drives an e46 lowered in the winter and how it is? What kind of springs would you guys recommend for winter driving?

Yes get some eibach springs. Its a conservative drop and makes the car look a lot better.

Or get coil overs. E46s don't look good on stock suspension. And my car is lowered and Im fine in the winter.

ya i dont know what to do lol. What do you guys think about apex springs? I had them on my old e30 and one side was lower than the other!

Eibachs would be sick! What kind of coilovers would be good for a 330 besides the bilstein, something on the cheaper side that is still good quality?

H&R Cupkit w/RE RSM is a great year round solution.
