You will likely need longer sway bar end links but you might not know just how long until the new ride height is set. Here is mine with ST's installed, I had factory sport suspension that the ST's replaced.

Then you will be much lower than I. I've got quite a bit of drop left if needed. However, as it sits, I just barely scrape going/coming from my garage (drive is a steep angle) so any lower and I couldn't park in the garage . Yours will look good tucked.

st's

I have only driven it home from shop. Felt good, no rubbing. I am happy. My bilstein's pss9 felt better on my e46, but they were twice the price. I will update after a few days of driving.

Driving

Ok, it drives really good for being so low. It bounces a little. I am very happy with them for the money. In the past I had a 335i with H&R springs with stock shocks on 20" rims and it rode horrible.

Looks good, but not sure I want it any lower that stock sport height.
Thanks.
