    Hi all

    I was just wondering if anybody has lowered a e60 touring sport??

    Im looking at putting some 19x8.5 fronts and 19x10's on the rears on my touring and was thinking of maybe lowering it, do BMW do retro fit springs if not which are the best springs to go for.

    Im also not quite sure if i need to lower it as i have the sport model and it is lower than the se model??

    Any help would be great regards mini-geek

    If you're putting 19's on then i'd definitely be lowering it a little, not a silly drop but instead something subtle like an eibach pro spring kit. If you want it slighlty more lower than the pro kit but not slammed on springs then look at H&R springs which lower 40mm front and 35mm rear.
