    hey guys,

    right im looking at lowering springs and so forth and i have found some nice ones 50mm at the front 40mm at the back, will i have problems with speed bumps and so on or will it just make it over them? also what are multistory car parks like with this lower setup?

    thanks in advance

    bought a e36 with 60mm allround speed bumps were a no go.did have 15inch wheels on though with 50 profile tyres.mite be right about the standard struts mine failed mot on maximum travel you could move them by hand ,needed shortened struts.
