If you can write proper English then maybe someone will help. LOL. How old are you by the way?

And do resize your picture. Its way too big.

Don't have experience with coil overs. But looking at your car, looks like if you lower it any further the rear may tire may hit the wheel well. But then again the coil over is adjustable so you can adjust it higher so it won't hit. But then again I don't see the point of getting them. Probably best to just get a set of lowering spring for the front and lower the front further. Say 1.5". Then your car will look damn good.

If you need to install the coil over, then rolling the fender may be the only option for you with the 19" wheel.

Good luck.

he said he was 20. no excuse not to type proper English...

OP: I am sure your English Writing teacher told you this every year, regardless of who s/he was: writing is important. Others will either respect you or ignore you or piss on you if you type like a moron. This isn't an instant message site; it's a forum. We aren't texting each other right now. We are typing messages. Type regular English and people are more likely to respond. (Though this is not a guarantee; use at your own risk.)

Sorry, but I've seen a lot of stuff on this forum, but never seen that brand of suspension.

And in my opinion, a suspension is a very important part of a car, so don't go cheap.
$210 for coilovers? I wouldn't trust my life to it.

If you want to be economical, get the H&R Cupkit.

If you have a cheap crappy bumper, all that can hurt is your looks.
If you have a cheap crappy suspension and it fails while you're driving, the results could be much more painful.

Good luck!

That suspension is cheap for a reason. Go with a real brand name and try posting in the suspension forum you will get a better response there

OP, just a word of advice it is not cool to talk about anyones car. Just because you have few mods doesn't mean anything. Plus you have mods and are asking questions so that just proves you are not a expert either. Its a E46 dammit that's all that matters. This is a forum not a chat room, it is a site for enthusiast .

But you should definitely get RACE LANDS I heard they are great. lol
