    hi i am new to this and would like to ask for some advice i have a 316i E36 compact with 16 inch alloys, think they may have come of the newer compact i was thinking of lowering it but really dont know how low to go, i have seen plenty of kits online but like i said dont know how low to go was thinking of 40mm on the rear and 60mm on the front would this be passable or would the car scrub

    all advice would be helpfull thanks

    You can go for a 40/60 springs and shocks or coilovers and choose the height you want.

    Tunning art coilovers are £145 from Hottuning on here..

    Not sure if you need shortened droplinks on a compact though.
