    Hey,
    I have a 320 ci convertible and now looking to but new wheels and lower it.
    Looking to go for 18" and drop it about 40mm. But as the car is standard on 16" bmw wheels now it looks like the front would need to be lowered about 20mm more than the back, has any one dealt with this or found springs that allow the front to drop lower then the back. Thanks

    Just go for a decent coilover kit, will save a lot of bother in the long run.
