advice on a suspension upgrade
 
What's up,I am looking to do a suspension upgrade om my 2000 323i w/sport package.I have a few brand's in mind but i just can't decide which one to go with,the H&R sport cup kit seem's like a good choice for the $ but it has limited drop,the next i was looking into was the st coil's or bilstein coil's.I also want to add front and rear sway bar's.

I would go with coilovers over springs. The coilovers will enhance the cars suspension and handling. I do not personally believe coil springs can enhance it as much as coilovers.

ST is a good choice. 5 year warranty, comfortable ride quality and made by KW.

Great choice. Don't forget you might need spacers!

Depending on the look you want 5mm to 10mm. 5mm being the min. that you need to clear the coilover.

+1 Depends on the offsets there.

ST's are a great coilover, which is why we have so many we keep in stock here. Give me a call or a PM if you want to get set up on our special pricing - 714.582.3330 extension 8002, or ask for Jurrian!
