Whats up everybody. I have a 1999 bmw 323i and I have a wheel gap that bothers the shit out of me. Its a 5speed 6cylinder motor with bbs rims 18x7.5 all around. I was just wondering what kind of suspension I could go with if I just wanted to lower on springs and how many inches lower would I need to get rid of the wheel gap for a cleaner look. I know about coilovers and whatnot but I don't really plan on slamming or dumping my car due to living in the bay area and this being a daily driver and commuter car. I just really want that wheel gap gone. PM or comment right on the forum. Thanks!
They guy above is retarted he comments on everything and is no help to anyone. If you are using your car as a daily driver I would only drop about 1 inch. IF a shop has to work on the car and they do not have ramp style lifts, it is going to be extremely hard to get the car up in the air. I would not lower the car since you already have 18's on it, Maybe just a wide body kit and some spacers or some new fenders could really set the car off.
