Your thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks, - Ray -
Hi Ray...No I never persued it. The car seemed to have settled down as the miles piled on (currently at about 12k miles).

Either that or I have gotten used to it.

There is room for improvement though.

I would like to lower my fronts a 1/2 inch as well. I searched the forums and found the perch option. I haven't tried it but sounds like it may be a good option. I wish I could find an honest review.

Thanks - I was going to make a thread about this. Bimmian.com are trying to convince me that just the springs without dampers is okay. definitely not but i was curious because i wasnt sure on the bmw because it already seems slightly lowered

SP lowering spring perches; plenty of reviews; sounds like they work well with oe springs but not lowering springs.

cheapeat would be lowering perches for that 1/2". this way you wouldnt disturb shock/strut to spring balance.
wouldnt help with body roll or bounciness tho....to remove that, you are really looking at replacing control arms, sub frame bushings and rear toe arms alongwith shock/springs(koni yellows/fsd paired with eibach) ...
