e90 SE too high

hi all.

i have like a 3 cm arch gap which id like to reduce. i looked at eibach springs but they lower the car by 30mm and 25mm which is too low for me.

does anyone know whether fitting in msport springs will lower the car and by how much?


thanks

thanks for your reply.

so msport springs are 15mm lower than SE? front and rear?

on part website they classify shocks and springs as "standard suspension", "sport suspesion" and "with m-technolgy". does anyone know what these mean and does it matter if ie. "standard suspension" shocks go with, say, m-technolgy springs?


thank you

sport package and M-sport package use the same suspension (at least here in north america. I'd be assuming europe should be the same).

If you use the lower/stiffer sport springs with regular shocks you will blow them out not long after. Basically you should match shocks/springs
