Lightbulb wheel/suspension set up

So i'm looking to put some CSL's on my car, and lower on H&R race springs. I figured these being two very common products for the e46ers that maybe somebody had a pic? or maybe even bilstein springs? Im looking for a decent drop on the CSL's. I would love 19's but plan on going with 18's. This is why I would love to see how they look with a nice drop. Thanks ahead

Message my buddy E40SICK. He's running CSL's with the race springs on a coupe. Believe he has 19x8.5 square setup. I'm running VMR's, but i'm not dropped currently.

I'm currently trying to see some on 18's, Do you have any issues with your 19's? I have always heard they are very uncomfortable, and tires go fast and are pricey. I love the look of 19's but have heard a lot of complaints bc of them. Your sig is the exact look I am shooting for.

vmr, csl....same thing...kinda

No complaints here at all! The ride quality has obviously gone down a bit... but its not very harsh whatsoever. Tires are pricy, but it all depends on how you drive. Drive any car hard, the tires will go by. Many people say they look to big for an E46... but I love the look. Just avoid big potholes

Yep. H&R race springs for non sport or sport springs for sport.
Same springs.
