Im not getting lowered when I get my 19's. They look perfectly fine to me. No point of spending 2k on coils just to lower it 0.5 inches.

My friend has 19's on his OEM sport suspension. Looks awesome, doesn't look too high at all.

Most people with E90's (at least on here) wont go for 800-1000 kits. Ksport is around 800 bucks but I seldom hear anyone with an E90 with those. My friend with a 89 Prelude had them on his car.

KW V1's being "relatively" affordable are about 1.5k. plus taxes, install and perhaps shipping you are looking well over 2k.

Lowering is crucial. If you cannot afford coils get some h and r springs for 200 bucks

before coilovers:

I thought my 19's looked good on stock suspension too...
Then I lowered it and realized how very wrong I was.

well i do have the sports package so im guessing that means i have the sports suspension. my car sits so low with the stock 17's. but i think im going to be rocking rays g games 99b's 19x9. i dont know if i want to wait to put the wheels on without upgrading the suspension. ive been looking at the blistien coilover set up.

H&R, ST, KW, all at/below $1500... most are free shipping but then I do my own install.
