    Hi
    I have recently bought a E46 325i and i have put 18" bayern wheels on it and it is now sitting a little high so im going to lower it i was wondering if anyone could recommend any lowering kits?
    Also how much i can lower it without it catching with people in the back im running 225/45/18 tyres on 8.5" rims?
    Has anyone got any pics of their cars they have lowered?

    Thanks Dayle

    Hottuning do a very well priced kit for the E46 however you will need to order two washers from BMW (so you don't have to salvage from your existing units) and you will also need to ask Edwin at hottuning to make sure the kit is supplied with the shortened anti roll links.

    A "How To" will be available on the forum shortly to aid members with fitting these coilovers as the kit comes with NO INSTRUCTIONS at all

    The kit appears to be great quality for the money paid and comes with a two year guarantee and is TUV certificated

    Thanks guys i wasnt really wanting to go as extreme as coilovers. Im only wanting to do it for looks rather than making it handle like a rollerskate.
    I was just thinking about doing springs really

    Eibach are probably the best choice for springs

    Quality product and do various drops to suit your taste
