suggestions on parts for lowering my car

Hey,

Need help figuring out what parts should I buy to lower my car. I have a 2006 325xi which is an all-wheel drive sedan. KW coilovers are the only parts that I can think of right now, but not enough budget to buy it so far. Any suggestions??

Thanks!

Lowering with just springs is gonna be a bad idea you'll just end up changing your shocks either way and end up paying twice for installation. Just save your money. Check out vrsf for an awesome price on kw v1. I got mine from there cheapest I found.

The car itself or the springs and shocks lol. Currently my car is at max height which isn't as high as xi stock height looks good but not as good as it was lowered obviously I don't think I took pics when my car was low unfortunately. I never got a chance but if the weather clears up I'll take some pics with my dslr.
