    I want to get some coilovers for my car, basically want stiffer suspension, but don't want to lower it much more than 25mm.

    Got around £250. Can anyone recommend anything? i take it just lowering springs will just be rubbish as the current suspension damping won't be any good?

    I just installed some FK AK coilovers on my E46 last night and they're good quality for money.
    (Bit bouncy though) Cost me £200 on eBay and included shorter drop links and only took 2hours to install. Didn't need spacers either.

    buy a shock and spring combo much better than cheap coilovers shop around weitec are ok and reasonable costs but it might be better to just buy quality springs and save for the shockers.
