    I have a 316i se compact with 15" alloy's hopefully in going to upgrade the alloys in the future! they are pretty decent alloys im not sure what kind they are..if someone could look at my pic's and let me no that would be great ive never seen them on other Bimmer's before!, anyhows, im thinking of lowering my car. what are the pro's and con's of doing this? ive never had it done before. the way it sits now is abit odd looking. the gap on the front looks bigger then the back! from tyre to arch, surley it should be the other way around? does any1 know what size spring's are on a standard 316 compact, and what would any1 reccomend going down to?

    Gap on the front looks more cause of the shape of the panels.
    Pro's = improved handling,looks good
    Con's = Harder ride-less comfort.
