E36 lowering springs question

Has anybody ever used these springs to lower their E36? The price is not bad but how about the quality? I'd like to get a set of lowering springs but don't know what kind to get.

I personally wouldn't get those. Bavauto springs are pretty cheap.

I'm not sure about those springs, but just a note....if you get shorter/lowering springs, get shorter/stiffer shocks and install everything at the same time
"Driving is like a narcotic, an addiction that can take over lives. It ruins people, breaks families apart, and even kills. Itís habit that needs to be fueled. Time, money, rationality, sweat, knuckle skin, and anyone who disapproves are of little importance to a driver, and are often overlooked. Hi, Iím Nelson, and Iím a drivaholic."

That's a pretty big drop according to the specs "Front : 1.9" Drop - Rear : 1.7" Drop" IMO...I dropped mine 1.5" and 1" I'm almost tucking, not missing much so imagine with those, it would be close.
