    Looking at the sportline springs now and it says they lower the front 30-35mm and only 15 on the back? Where as some places say pro kit does 40mm?

    trust me i have a prokit on mine and it lowers an Msport saloon naff all, the claims of lowering inmprovements are more for the coupes and with standard suspension, it lowers an M sport saloon prolly no more than 5-10mm at the back tops i know i have it on mine...

    like i saids if you want more on the floor lowering for road/track use you need a sportline kit but you will need shorter droplinks to go with it aswell..
    330i sport a big chunk of berlin...

    I am probably going to get the spotline kit then.. would you say thats the best set of springs I could buy if I'm just getting springs? And droplinks?

    i have -35 h+r springs and shocks on mine and run standard drop links you only need short ones for bigger drops. Oh and the car was set up by one of the leading suspension tuners in the UK so if it needed shorter drop links it would have got them. Eibach and H+R are the best springs by consensus either and you will be fine.

    my old e46 328 coupe had cheap ebay coilovers on, was probs lowered around 40mm all round and it drove no worse than my current e36 328 sport on bilsteins.
    i thought the 46 handled better personally.
    just did a trackday in my e36 and it wallowed about a bit to much for my liking but still did well .

    they where on the car when i bought it. pro sport rings a bell but not 100%sure.
    my old passat had jom coilovers i think and they were fine to until you went really low and made the car undriveable ! looked cool though.
    think aslong as u keep it sensiblish height then they will be fine.
