    Just an idea,

    coilovers are always better but will be about £600 ish?
    as opposed to £100ish for just springs
    Depends on your budget.


    What tyres sizes do you have on as thats more important than just being 19" wheels

    hottuning, one of our forum vendors do an exceptionally low priced set of coilovers

    Also look at Eibach springs around a 35-40mm drop. Any lower will require the use of shortened dampers

    If you choose to go lower then I used G-Max sports suspension kit on my coupe when it was a 318is (60mm springs with shortened dampers) Excellent value for money in my opinion
