    Hey Crossfire m3,

    Sorry for delay, I didn't even know someone could post a message other than PMing..

    Anyway, I have kit that was once made by Koni, but I believe its been discontinued. Not to worry though, for springs, I believe the Eibach Pro-kit offers identical specs in terms of lowering amount and spring rate. This would NOT be the Eibach Sportline springs, which is lower and more aggressive. For shocks, Koni still makes their adjustable shocks, or you could go with the Bilstein Sports.

    Also note that I've raised the front of mine with custom 10mm spacers. I needed extra clearance for my front bumper. So if you go with a modest spring kit, such as abovementioned Pro-Kit, the front will be slightly lower and have a more 'raked' look, which I think is desirable anyway.

    My setup is not harsh and rides comfortably. My recommendation for adjustable shocks would be NOT to set to full firm. This will be a harsh ride. 5-7 out of 10 is ideal for a comfortable but sporty ride.

    Good luck!

    Hey men..

    Im From Puerto Rico and I loved the way your ride looks, Is Perfect..

    I have an 323i green also 1999, What suspension Do you Have?

    - How does it rides?

    -Im looking for a bit of drop with a comfortable ride, not a harsh one.

    My fear is that right now i did an suspension kit overhaul with shocks.

    i just want to have a comfortable Ride with a little bit of Drop What do you suggest me?

    thanks men
