best lowering springs?

I've got plans to lower my car, I don't want to slam it just would like to close the gap and give it a more aggressive look without scrapping my driveway too much.

Need ideas for springs and rough costs....

I'm on 313's and its an e93 if that matters at all.

H&r sport springs give an ideal drop for closing the gap.

HR touring kit ftw

$750 hr touring kit. You'll regret just doing springs. Save money by doing it right the first time.

ACTUALLY WAIT BEFORE YOU ORDER

I heard that a 320 engine... as it is lighter than a 335i... will not give you the same drop.

But i think you should be fine. GAZA on here has a 325 and he has the same springs and has the same drop... But just confirm it.

The ride is fine over the small bumps etc but pot holes can make your filling fall out. But the handling is much improved.
