member who has 18" with touring cup kit

guys, i need some advice, im getting 18" and thinking should i lower my car, my car is 323i sedan with non sport suspension, and im looking at the touring cup kit, the only think i worry about is i drive my grandmom sometimes, so i dont want to be too stiff, and i live in nyc, the road is really bad here, so i need some idea how u feel after u installed 18" with touring cup kit, or should i just keep my stock suspension and run 18" on it, if u have a picture of 18" on a non sport suspension will be great, please post them, i wanna see how would that look, hope it doesn't look like a suv, thanks in advance.

Here's mine with 18's CSL, on stock suspensions. You can definitely feel the difference on road feel, but it's not too rough.

my regular sports suspension is not the smoothest either and I'm sure the kit will make them worse to the point it's not comfortable for a grandmother.

Get the 18's first because that will change the ride comfort a bit as well.
