    Hi all, need some advice on lowering my bmw. Ok, my car is standard 316i compact automatic 1995 with 16 inch alloys. What i want to achive is the suspension to be lowered to a couple of inches from the top of the wheels all round. Do i need to change all the standard springs to lowering springs and should the dampers be changed, or can i just keep the standard dampers thats already on the vehicle. Any tips on what lowering springs i need for my make of vehicle at a budget price?. Also could do with some budget priced dampers if needed. Any help appreciated.
