    Hi, i was just wondering if anyone has lowered their E46 Coupe and if they had any pictures of it?

    I was thinking of getting a set of springs for mine, but they all seem to lower the front more than the back, am the only one who wants to lower the back slightly more than the front?? it just seems to annoy me how the rear sits slightly higher than the front, i know its to compensate for rear passengers but i rarely have any! although i have found a set that will lower the front and rear both 40mm and another which will do it 30mm. this would be fine on the standard shocks wouldnt it?

    i was also thinking of lowering the rear 20mm and not touching the front at all, seems a waste of a full set of springs though?

    its a 2000 318Ci by the way!

    any comments welcome

    cheers.
