    Hello I've found some eibach pro lowering spring for a 318 ci e46 coupe but can only find -25mm drop at front and 10mm drop at the rear.. With a 40mm drop all around. Would this look alright and fill the arches a bit with 18s on? Here's a picture if this is clear enough! Thanks for anyone who could help!



    Many thanks guys!

    Sorry don't get it...The kit lowers the front by 25mm and thee rear by 10mm so where do you get the 44mm drop? The Pro kit is very good but if you want to go lower then you should get the sport kit.Eibach springs are brilliant. Another make of spring which I have found to be brilliant too are lowtech springs.They have more of a choice of lowering springs on offer too and I have loved them since I put them on my car They are sold by our forum vendors Made One

    That wouldn't be low enough for me. I think you'll need to go lower with those wheels as well.

    Are coilovers out the question?

    To give you an idea, mines is dropped about 60-70mm and the wheels are 18's, and this is how it sits - so those springs i dont think would satisfy you in all honesty, there may still be a gap.
