My Ride: 330ci sport
Q: is there a way to drop about 15mm, with no loss of ride quality?

I made a bit of a spur of the moment purchase and bought some 19's for my 330 sport. It obviously has the factory m-tech sports suss on so doesnt look heinous, but its been pushed up a 'lil and a 15mm drop would suffice to keep me happy.

I would go lower but ride quality is V important and must be preserved.
so.. are there some high quality springs out there which will drop it a bit, maintain handling that is at least as good as it is now, but mainly, retain the same level of smoothness?

I dropped my last car 60-70mm on coilovers and i aint goin there again.

I'll aim to get pics up asap so you can assess.

muchos thanks

Im thinking of getting the H&R sport for my 330, it drops the car .75" in the front and .25" in the back, or about 19mm in the front and about 6mm in the rear......im still deciding on 18" or 19" wheels...
