Lowered e92?

I'm thinking about getting my car lowered.. I don't want that ghetto "my car touches the ground" look, i just it a bit lower.

Has anyone here lowered there car? If so has it made a difference in handling? And how's it look [feel free to post a pic]

Never really seen the point to tell you the truth. The benefits you get from it are at the track and that's barely noticeable. Otherwise it's a completely pain in the ass. You have to constantly pay more attention to the road, go extremely slow and curve on bumps.

Nah, not my thing. If I wanted my shit scraping on every incline and driveway that's one thing, but since I don't, I'll keep it factory.
Now TUNING, and cosmetic mods....that's another matter lol

No I was the guy wondering if there was a turbo compatible with a 328xi's N52 engine because I can't seem to find anything besides some fake ass eBay turbos made out of plastic.

I lowered my car with the right coilover suspensions and I would say it is better than my stock suspension... and i'm telling you my car is a "LowLife"... but it doesn't look like a ricer nor ghetto... I say If you want to lower your car do it... If you want to listen to those conservative ones then keep it stock... there are pros and cons on lowering cars... For me I learn to live with it and I'm liking it so far... get KW V3 so it is fully adjustable But one friendly warning... once you lowered your car... you wont be able to stop modding it... it is so ADDICTING!!!
