    Hey All,

    I know there is another thread about this but here goes....

    I'm getting on with my daily runner project, at present im just having Genuine M3 Front & Rear Bumpers painted to get put on and then next step will be getting it lowered.

    Not running on strange wheels, 17" Motorsport wrapped in 225/45R17

    I'm looking for budget lowering ideas. probably looking for a 40mm drop.

    Ideas please.

    If its only a 40mm drop then have a look at the Eibach prostreet kit...They're springs that will work with your standard shock and will be a lot more comfortable than coilovers

    I have the eibachs on mine and must say I am very very happy with them! Very comfy springs while still sporty!

    There's a pik mate! I would go with them I love em!

    Thanks for the quick replies guys.
    Just had a quick look in the net.
    Can't find any 40mm all around but thats because the e36 have the signiture rear higher than front stance right?
    If you can could you push me in the right direction to an online shop .... lol cheers
