exactly how low can the HR coilovers drop in the rear? I see a vendor site (http://www.m3motorwerks.com/product....php/II=74/PA=3) claim 1.5", while the official HR website states a 2" drop. I have the sports package for my 2000 323ci. Is it enough to slightly tuck the rear wheels in to the well? I do not want an aggressive rake (front lower than back). I looking for a more overall horizontally even drop. Anyone have pics with HR coilovers installed in their 323ci 2000 they can show me? Any other brands that are worth lookin' into that provides a good drop in the rear? thanks for any help.

2 inches seems pretty drastic on a BMW. Most BMW's are so low that springs wont drop it over 1.75 inches. Even with a 1.5 inch drop you would tuck slightly. Also, H&R should drop unevenly, the front would drop more, usually about 0.25 inches lower.

It depends which coilover you want, they make 3 different kinds for your car. Secondly, they all drop the front more than they will the rear. The most agressive of the kits will drop the front up to 2.2 inches, the rear for that kit will drop up to 1.5 inches
