    been thinking of trying these whilst keeping the budget low and wonder how
    low i could safely go without problems

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/COILOVER-BMW-E...item256318b0cb

    car currently uses 235/40/17 tyres on 17 inch rcs

    coilovers in question go

    Front -20mm till -120mm

    Rear -20mm till -70mm


    also would spacers be needed with these wheels and yes they are genuine


    thanks in advance

    You may need a 3-5mm on the front to clear the strut. On the lowness front...there aint many speedbumps in Lynn...
