Breyton 19" + lowering coilover kit how much lower?

Hi

Anyone have idea / information about my following "problem".

My summer tyres set is:
Breyton Race GTS 19"
8,5" front 235/35 et 30
9,5" back 265/30 et 35

have ordered 20-65mm lowering coilover kit.
How much you think i can lower car without going too far?

I googled and read somewhere german/breyton document that they would recommed 30/25mm lowering with the 19" setup.

Maybe thats enough, because they sell to E90 the 20" size
too.

I had m sport shocks and 30/25mm Eibach springs but the ride in everyday use was wayyy too hard! on race track it was great...so i changed back my m sport springs 15/15mm and sooo much softer ride now.

so maybe the 30/25mm is in safety line.+have ordered HamannM3 style front bumber and next a Hamann carbon front bumper lip spoiler...so that lowers the space too a little in front between road and the car.

really hope the coilover kit (which you can adjust to be soft first and harder then....you know what i try to say) will be good to ride....

so 30/25??

If they're adjustable mate then try out different heights to what's
comfortable and to your liking in both stye/handling and comfort!

i will, but the problem is...its winter so winter tyres and wheels now...those tiny ones compared to the summer ones heh.

maybe i will take left or right summer set with me and ask to test lowering with those sets before summer,then i dont have to calibrate now and again with summer setup.

here´s some pics from summer and last ones before tuning project continues...if i remember this setup is with m sport shocks and 30/25mm eibach springs..
