You'll struggle to find a coilover kit that won't go lower by an inch..! Lowering by one inch really isn't much.

What is your overall goal of the coilover kit? Is it purely for aesthetics? Will you be tracking or autocrossing the car?

We offer a coilover kit that will start around stock height and is adjustable to about 1.5-2" lower.

So, I want to make sure I understand this correctly, you want to lower the car 4-4.5 inches below stock?

you non xi people dont understand, the xi is extremely high from stock, i put h&r sport springs and its still super high, this is very frustrating, i would love to know which coilover kit would give the most drop on an E92 Xi, it really does need to be 4+inches lower than stock to even get close to having no gap between the fender and tire
