lowering my 01 330ci

what do u guys recommend, i was deciding either h&r or eibach.. or something that gives good ride quality.. also i dont want it to be to low. like one finger gap should be fine because i am going to put 18inch rims. so what do u guys think? what drop should i do?

thanks

if you got sport suspension now then i suggest a set of H&R race springs, your sport shocks should be able to handle them. For ride height it is RIGHT on the tire, so u can fit maybe half a finger.

If you have the sport seats and the sport wheel (3 spoke), you have the Sport Suspension.

My car is on H&R Cupkit for Sport Suspension, and it's a great set-up, better than stock, but still a practical ride height and comfortable. Don't forget to replace your rear shock mounts while your at it, RE makes great replacements for $120 ish.

Yeah, I'm very happy with Bilstein PSS coilovers for a daily driving... plus, the freedom to have height adjustability.
