Not too much to maintain while your in there unless your bushings are worn out.

We are running a promo on these BTW. PM for coupon code.

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.

I planned on going the lowest setting with 19" aggressive wheels.

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.

Me? No, it's about half way. I could keep it at stock sport suspension height if I wanted.
