    Is it possible to only replace front springs with aftermarket lowering springs and leave the back standard? I wanna lower it 30/40mm. Recently fitted 19" and still have a large gap in the arches.

    Cheers

    most kits come with front and rear springs so you might aswell lower then both however the choice is yours, the one thing you need to be carefull of it lowering it to much so that it looks out of proportion, ideally you want the rear wheel to sit more into the arch than the front and lowering it 30-40 mill just on the front may make it look a little odd, lowering springs are usually around 130 notes for the complete kit but you can get it cheaper if you look around.

    another thing to consider is as you have larger wheels lowering it may cause adverse wear to the tyres so make sure you look into this a little more if you go agead with it, if you scour the net you will find someone who has already done what your aiming to do so you can get all relevant info.

    ah well in that case dont worry about it, the fact is your in a bmw and their not, if your happy with the way it looks then leave it, if you get me a nice shot i can lower it for you so you can see the difference tho

    yea cool, soon as your ready just give me a pm, it will only take me a couple of minutes to lower it in photoshop so you can get a good idea of how it may or may not look, i can also fit different parts in photoshop but that takes a little more time as i need to source the correct angled donor parts etc
