My Ride: BMW E46 330i touring
I want to lower my E46 touring and inprove the handling

Hello

im into my 2nd day of owning a e46 touring and really enjoying the car.

I want to lower it. Ive come from the dub scene and over there handling is the last thing on there mind. scrapping on the floor and cheep ebay coilovers half the time.


I want to lower my car without upsetting the handling. Ive seen some ebay coilovers for around 200 but im pritty sure they will handle worse than my stock m sport surpension.

Id love to buy some top spec coilovers and set it up properly but this car is a stepping stone to a M3. just to last me while have have 9 points. so i don't want to spend to much on it.

So im looking at springs?

which springs are the best and give an improvement in handling, or at the very least don't make it worse.

I want to close up the arch gap so im thinking of a 60mm drop on the front and id like alittle less on the back. is this ok on the stock shocks without damaging them.

buget is around 200.

Pics would be great of peoples tourings with lowering springs so i can see the kind of stance acheaved

just to add im not to bothed about ride confort. and would like it abit stiffer. its so smooth it doesn't feel anywhere near as fast as it is
