    Going to put new suspension on my E30 325i touring.
    It's got a 60mm drop at the moment and is undriveable due to the wide wheels, I was going to go for a 20mm drop and new shocks.

    Is the best set up still Bilstein shocks and eibach springs, and wheres the best place to buy the parts from.

    Spose its worth doing all the bushes to poly at the same time.

    Best place to get the Bilstein shocks will be Eurocarparts because they specialise in them. They also do Apex lowering springs when I was last there if you are interested in them, otherwise the place I know who does Eibach would be Performance Car Parts

    how wide are your wheels/tires mate?
    i know mines a coupe but i have 40mm front and rear with 205's on and its fine, never scraped once...
    if you want to go as low as possible without being impractical? i thought thats what everyone generally aims for?

    I got 9x16" on the rear and they rub as soon as you sit in the drivers seat, the fronts are 7.5x16" and rub on the arch when you turn the wheels anything but straight ahead.

    Cant find 20mm drop so will go for 30mm drop
