Do not do just lowering springs if suggested. It may be cheaper but destroys your shocks. Get a coil over kit. I believe h&r has a cup set for 700 bucks. Ive seen cheaper and more expensive, but never cheap out especially on a 330

Good with our cars, h&r/bilstein combo. I test drove a 325 with it, I must say it was pretty smooth. Slightly lowered it as well.

I'm really agreeing with you on the height, so I just replaced my shocks with KONI FSD's.
But if you want this and a lower ride, buy the FSD & Eibach spring package.
Check out tirerack.

Ugh. H&R makes springs, Bilstein makes shocks & struts. There is no or. You need both. Or maybe Koni & Eibach.

Of course it's my car. Why would I have a photo of someone else's car in my sig? And yes, that's also me driving. In that photo my car is not lowered. It's simply on the factory sport suspension.
