    This might sound like a dumb question to you guys more knowladgeable about bm's than me but here we go.

    I want to lower my 2006 E61 M sport about 20-30mm which springs would you guys go for (as i want to keep it as close to a standard ride as possible)
    And how do you lower the rear? With the air suspension?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi

    I'm after the same advice but was wondering if I can get rid of the air suspension and put normal coil overs on and then lower the car to what I want????

    Hopefully someone can answer the question for us!!!!!!

    The front is simply new springs and the rear is done using INPA or DIS software, see the lastest posts by 1animal1 for a guide on ho to do it
