Suspension advice

Evening Gents

Looking at my options for suspension on the car. Just fitted the 25mm Eibach spacers which help fill the arches a little but, still needs to be lowered a bit i feel.

I am thinking 40-50mm on the front and 30-40mm on the rear. Are the standard shocks good enough for this sort of drop? Any other springs worth looking at?

For that sort of drop I would suggest Eibach Sportline, around 50mm front and 30mm rear if I remember correctly... That sort of drop you would probably want to upgrade the shocks as well, stock ones probably wouldnt last too much longer (Im guessing this is your 2007 335?)

Alternatively have you looked at going straight to coilovers? Would give you the ability to fine tune the height and damping to suit your needs, but will cost a bit more obviously.
