Try shorter springs.

They don't make coilovers for XI yet. So those will not even work for your car

I talked to the guy I ordered from and this is what he had to say!


Hey, like i said when you first came in, they do make a kit, but the only difference is the front knuckle. BC racing carries plenty of applications that is not listed on their sheet, and this is one of them. When I called them, your're able to lwoer the front barely like an inch or so but the rear is the same according to BC. This is what BC emailed me exactly.

"The awd e90 does not lower much. You can use a rwd e90 on it, but due to the front mounting points being higher it makes for the vehicle not to lower much."

and this is using the extreme drop kit that was added onto it

Is it just me or have like 10 of these exact rheads came up lately. Xi cant go as low, simple as that. If you cant get low enough with what you go buy shorter springs.

yeah, do you guys think its unsafe or sketch to take out the lower perchs on the front coils to make them go a little lower? I just want to be able to be tucked in the front.. Someone help me with ideas! Anybody do anything to get it lower than what it came with?

And he told me that the coils are being sent with the shortest spring ratio they have.

Key words : "they have." Doesn't mean shorter springs don't exist.

got ya. I'll have to check it out. he just replied and said
"You have a couple of options.

If you have the front koyo bearings, You can buy the solid top plates and gain 13mm.

You can run a shorter spring in the front and droop it to reach the height you want, but we are not responsible for any noises resulting from droping it."

can anyone help me find solid top plates? i can't seem to find any..
