I hate the look of bimmers being lower in the back than the front, so i've been looking at new springs and such. I found this coilover kit, what do you all think? Is this good quality? especially cause it's only like $200 instead of $1000 like the H&R coilovers. Any info appreciated. Thanks.

all bmws sit lower in the front... it might not look that way because of the way the wheel wells are arranged. as for the coilover kit, i wouldnt go with anything that isnt name brand. if ur going to spend 200 on no name coilovers u might as well just drop 250 on sum eibach springs or H&R springs

Shouldn't you also change shocks? Or is that for something different?

No ... coils come with shocks and struts built into them...

This will explain things for you...
