    Hi folks got new 18* csl reps today, hope to get them fitted in next couple of weeks when I purchase tyres. I hope to then lower car, what is best make of springs and should I go lowering springs route or performance springs route. My biggest concerns are, how much should I lower by? and Im not sure what springs my car has. For example if I buy 40mm lowering springs and my car has standard springs fitted I should achieve this drop, but if my car has Mtech springs what drop will I achieve.

    My car is 320 d ES but has M tech multi function steering wheel, gear knob and black alacantara roof lining, which is why I have the query, im not sure what suspension it has. How could I find out?

    Thanks

    Liam

    i really must get some pics taken...but,imho,the pro kit is all you need with 18's
    take my word that you wont notice any difference in comfort using the pro kit...have heard the sportsline kit is hard enough to rattle fillings
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.
