Looks great! I definitely need to drop my xi

So you confirmed that the 328i springs work correctly on an ix? Because Eibach does not list a spring for ix app & usually the ix requires a different P/N spring with other manufactures...

Only thing is I will also replace the shocks with springs. Wonder how long (if ever) it takes for your stock shocks with 32k miles on em' to crap out after trying to control shorter springs that they were not made for.

I guess I don't understand why lowering amount would be any different between different size wheel/tire combo? You're lowering the car over the wheels, plus if you changed up in size correctly, the new bigger dia. wheel/tire combo should be very close to the same dia. as the stockers (especially since it is an xi) only difference you have less tire sidewall showing now...
