The coilovers go lower and are adjustable..thats why they cost more, the springs by themselves only goto 1.2 and 1.3...and are cheaper.

No, you can't lower your car more than 1.3/1.2 unless you get the coilovers apparently.

yup, that's the problem I am seeing. they are forcing us to lower our cars with coilovers.

i am looking at either the KW Variant 1s or the H&R Coilovers.

Anyone on Bilstein PSS9 coilovers? Was recommended by my mechanic which offers lifetime warranty(if you get from authorize workshop) and definitely worth the dollars and cents over the years if you are keeping your E90.

Have a feeling is a waste of money if I'm don't track. Otherwise, I would think Eibach or HR springs will be sufficient, what do you guys think?

Lol, looks great? If you like the way a car looks when it's bouncing all over the place. Please don't give this guy any ideas.

When springs are cut.....they are very harsh and bouncing!
I cut like 4 rings of the back and 3 off the front for my Eclipse!
But your ride will look TIGHT! SLAM to the ground!
