Advice On Lowering My 2006 750Li

Hi guys, I have a 2006 750Li with the sport package that I want to lower. I'm running a 22" staggered wheel/tire setup and am trying to figure out first if the car has spring or air suspension with the sport package (I haven't gotten it yet so I can't just look at it). If springs, does anybody have any recommendations for the best "bang for the buck" springs? Also if anyone has any experience how much I can drop the car running 22's....I'm guessing an inch and a half drop or so. Thanks for the advice.

I'm not sure lowering is a good idea on a long wheel base car, it could cause bottom scraping issues. Just my 2 cents.

^+1 especially with those way oversized rims

I'd take k&w suspension, I heard they're the best

Cool

I wouldnt be lowering it. It has air suspension and is self levelling.

Suggest you drive it and then decide why would you ruin a great handling car.

Its Your Car!
