    Hi All,

    I have a bmw e46 330ci. I am looking to lower it and would like any suggestions as to what springs i should use? any prefrences? any linnks would be great. Was looking to lower it by 40mm all round? is that suitable?

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Eibach springs are generally good. . They come with life time guarantee. . You can use eibach prokit or sportline for the job. . If you have normal suspensions then go with prokit. .

    if 40mm drop is good depends on the size of the wheels. . What size wheels have you got?

    springs should cost about 120ish and labour would be another 120. . get the wheels aligned after the job. .

    hi omey, if you already have sports suspensions your car is lower than a car with normal suspensions. .

    If you add springs with sports suspensions, you will not have a huge impact. . where as springs on normal suspensions gives a noticeable difference. .

    check with the dealer if you have sports suspensions b4 buying the springs. . hope this helps. .
