My Ride: 2001 325I Sedan 5spd
Coilovers: Raceland
Rims: Style 95s (F) 19x9 w/215/35/19 (R) 19x10 w/235/35/19

Will be a tad bit lower in the rear, needs to be rolled and pulled a tad bit. Also will be getting 5mm spacers for the front.

See my sig, I'm on Eibach Pro springs with 18" wheels. I think its the perfect everyday height although I am thinking of going 19"s.

Nothing fancy, Street Edge coilover kit, spun all the way down in front, and probably 1" left to go in the back if I wanted, on 17 x7.5s with 225/45/17s. I wouldn't dare go any lower even if I could, not around here. Roads and stuff are just too brutal and unpredictable.

No rubbing after I rolled my fenders. Stock spec alignment is all I have.

eibach pro kit (barely lower than stock sports suspension) with koni yellow adjustables. Great for people who want to be a tad lower than sports springs but want the daily driving capabilities of a normal car

really? looks lower than eibach pro kit. How long ago did you install? Did you remove rear spring pad? Look at the guy above me, you guys are about the same height and he is on eibach race... hmmm
