    i have 18'' on my 318is

    Front lowered 60mil
    Rear lowered 40mil

    Looks very nice, get lots of compliments, practical also, just take it easy on speed bumps and you will have no problems


    Push From Behind Is Always Best

    If you do it properly then the ride should not be affected too much. 40mm is more than low enough for your car on 17's any lower and you will have to add shortened shocks.

    I would NEVER advise anyone to cut springs, instead you can remove your springs and send them away to be custom modified.
    , love it!!!!
