    Hi all,

    my 318is has 18" on it but im looking to get new suspension for it to lowering it and make it handle better through corners.

    can anyone recommend how low i can go to get the best handeling on 18" rims?

    also would this effect the gear ratio & speedometer reading?

    thanks

    scott

    this car is used solely on the road?
    bigger/better anti roll bars (sway bars) reduce wallowing in the corners and you retain your ride comfort
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    it does affect the speedo and gearing but not enough to worry about. Check these out...I've heard good things about them and at the price are a bit of a bargain!
