On the cheap end look into FK coilovers. You may be pleasantly surprised.
If you want max drop on shock/spring combo, I think you pretty much have to go Tein. There by far the lowest springs I've seen for our chassis.
Hmm, FK has a lot of different coils out for our car. What is the best thing to look for. I don't fully understand spring rates. I want to go low, but keep a comfy ride, and you know the condition of our roads. Obviously I'm not going to go slammed (can't around here) but as far as spring rates go do I want softer, or harder? Harder would be a more bumpy ride, right? Or do I have that backwards? Is 385 lbs/inch a better ride than 435 lbs/inch? Or is it the other way around? Which set of FK's would you recommend Snik? There are 5 different sets available for my car here:
'08 BSM E92 335i 6MT/KW V1s/matte black grills/blacked out side markers/complete LED interior kit/DCI/M-aero front lip/Alcantara shift boot/Clutch stop/CDV delete/LED reverse lights/muffler delete/Cyba scoops/3.8" Cyba tips
