    Just bought my first BMW and am starting to look at mods, could anyone recommend any coil overs, not looking to sit it on the ground but a bit lower than standard height as it already scrapes enough with standard set up and wheels..

    all depends on your budget, what your after them for ie cosmetic or for track use etc i've got kw variant 2's on mine and they have been faultless but they are a fair few quid if your just after a cheap set!

    I was thinking mid range as I want them to do the job, mainly cosmetic as the car minus a bonnet is very clean.. So very little chance of track use.. I'm currently on standard 15s too so I don't know if I'm its worth sorting wheels first.. Which way did you go?

    i did both together but only because the wheels i have didnt look right without being low and also the coilovers helped them fit under the arches after a slight roll!

    off topic but just noticed your from south wales! where abouts?
