Any problems lowering Your e90?

im thinking about lowering my car, has anyone had any problems with their car scraping the ground or anything of that nature? I don't want to lower my car and have my suspension bottoming out constantly. any suggestions would help.

Everything depends on what suspension your looking into (coilovers, springs) as well as manufacturer and expected ride height. You can go low without hitting your suspension just gotta watch put for the front. If your used to driving that way its not a big deal IMO

Lowering the car will increase the chance of scraping. You'll just have to learn to be more aware of your surroundings and looks at entryways going into driveways and parking lots.

But overall a mod that's well worth it.
