Lowering 325xi

Ya it would be easier to do it all at once because if ur struts go in a like a year than u will have to spend the money on getting them and for the labor which I had already paid. So it's just better to do it all at once. Unless u do it ur self

OP, please see the first thread on the Xi home page. It will answer all of your questions and then some. Really no reason for a 4 page long thread on this. Also, please retake 2nd grade spelling and grammar.

Being a rude to some of our most knowledgeable members will not get you any help. Read read and then read the information that is there and then if you have specific questions then post them but your not doing something that hundreds have done before you.

Hey Anthony,

I'd encourage you to read SamDoe1's thread that is a link on the first page of this thread. He spells out options and makes recommendations. Trust him he knows this topic. I think it's no biggie for you to ask questions, and a search will often turn up some excellent info that will answer those questions much faster than having to wait for people to reply.

On the flip side, I don't see why your asking questions would be upsetting to others. They don't have to read the post if it looks redundant.

As for me, I'm going to order koni sports and eibach pro kit springs. From what I have read, it's the most comfortable lowering option. Hey, I spend my time IN the car, not looking at it. I want great handling and a halfway decent ride quality. Others prefer a harsher ride for even better handling, while others care little about handling or comfort and a lot about the lowered look. Variety makes the world an interesting place to live. Good luck with your choice.
