    With the weitec springs can you tell me a site to get them cheapish and how much would it cost? What's ride quality like and also are they quite cheap?! As good or better the eibach pros?!

    here are my eibach pro springs on my SE they dropped it more than enough! and it is still useable! go too low and you'll have to think about speed bumps and pot holes causing damage unless you do the dampers too!

    along the body shot:


    plus they are very good quality!

    i got mine here:

    On magik's car the eibach pro's have lowered the front enough but the back needs to come down more IMO!

    When I lowered my 316ti on eibach pro's the back was near perfect and the front looked stupid!

    You can get weitec's from www.venommotorsport.com ... they are a little cheaper than eibach pros.. about the same price as the sportlines.

    IMO the weitec's I've got (50mm front, 35mm rear) have given the car an almost perfect ride height (actually I'd like the front a little lower!).. ride quality on standard m sport shocks is fine..

    Having had both I'd choose weitec everytime, although the eibach pro kit is excellent in its own right!

    I can absolutely assure you that lowering the front 50mm DOES NOT give you speed bump issues, DOES NOT do any damage, and DOES NOT need new shocks! Been a year on mine now, absolutely no problems..

    PS: Magik, are you getting an E92 M3 now? I didn't know Vorsteiner did a styled E46 M3.... Or do you mean your planning on badging up a normal M3?

    Tbh the pros are all I've used! but my mate had coil overs and struggled where i live as they have ridiculous speed bumps! snapped his front bumper :P lol

    @ baderlfc - well my pan atm is to get vorstiener parts and then badge it if i could get a e92 m3 i would buy a csl lol but not sure on the parts atm as they are very expensive so might be a slow project or might have to use lower price parts then replace after a couple more years lol :P not too sure atm gotta sell the 316i se first lol then gotta finish uni and find an m3 long wait yet haha

    Coilovers are a different story.. most people who get coilovers (especially the cheap ones!) just want to deck their cars.. talking 70mm drops or more!

    @magik.. just get a mint M3, don't worry about messing around with it! If it's been looked after you won't need to immediately change parts

    Sportlines are no better than any other lowering springs, if your going eibach I'd seriously go for pro's!

    Or if the pro's aren't low enough for you I'd get H&R or Weitec..
