My Ride: 2001 BMW 330Ci
Exclamation My new 2001 330ci ---slamming it----

What's up... I'm 16 years old living in new york with my new 5 speed 2001 BMW 330ci with full dinan exaust, front and rear dinan sway bars, dinan chip...

I'm looking to drop my car without buying coil overs, I'm looking into getting H&R sport springs... It drops my front end 1.1" and my rear 0.9". Any other opinions on how low I should drop it without bottoming out everywhere in these horrible ny roads.

Just leave it stock if the roads are "horrible." Last thing you want at 16 is a huge repair bill. Just drive the car, it is nicer than what most have starting out.

I have the h&r cup kit sport. I love the drop and the ride. It might be too harsh for you but I like the responsiveness. If you go with 19's and go wide in the rear you will need to roll your fenders.

I have H&R sport springs.......

Within a year, you will have no choice but to replace your struts as they will be destroyed driving in NY (if they aren't already)
