    Hi there, iv recently bought a 330 conv on a 06 plate and could do with a little help. Iv been searching the forum but not come across what im after.

    Firstly im looking to get some 19s, iv narrowed it down to 2 styles at the moment, either, DOTZ MUGELLO, or CSL Reps. What are your thoughts or suggestions? Im open to others if ppl know of any good suggestions, however i would prefer if they are available with wider rear option.

    Next up is the suspension, im thinking of just springs! Only because of the fact i want the car to look lower and dont see the point of going down the coilover route.

    Finally, the lights, the fronts look yellow although i think it has exnons. I.E. it has self levelers and a magnifying glass look headlight. im just curious how to make them white, other than then obvious HID kit.

    Thanks

    1-i toyed with the idea of the dotz wheels....very nice ...also look at beyern mesh and tsw croft

    2-eibach springs seem to be the recommended standard when you speak to most on here

    3-if you dont have headlight washers you wont have hid lamps
    you could try the philips bulbs...heard they are good
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    cheers it has got head light washers!

    I was thinking Eibach, how much could i get away with lowering it? I dont want it to look really low low, just enough so the arches follow the wheels.

    40 mm should look just fine

    re the lights...do they spark into life...dim...then brighten again?...if so,you have xenons.
