I have already posted something like this a while back, but now that summer is rolling around, I am really considering getting a coilover kit. Now for some reason, I cannot find anything on the official website about the drop range for these kits: Bilstein and GC. I was wondering if anyone here knew the range off-hand? (I have the BMW sport suspension package from when I purchased the car). As for Tein, their website made no sense in terms of drop range:

Tein SS 323CI coilover drop height range

How can you have a negative drop and why is it only .91"? (approx lowering in the rear) That would be great if I can get the drop range of all these types of coilovers from people that actually have them installed and know for sure. A lot of sites I visited that sells the coilovers all state different drop range and not sure who is correct. Thanks for any help in advance. ^_^v

Coilovers
www.evolutionsports.com H&R Coilovers - $1200.oo
www.bavauto.com
Bilstein PSS9 w/ 9 adjustable shocks - $1499.95
Bilstein PSS - $1149.95
(off the top of my head)


The reason you would have a negative/ higher ride height after purchasing your springs is bc your stock sport package is prolly lower than those springs. So getting some aftermarket springs would only heighten your ride height.

But if you want a more aggressive stance/look and better handling, go with the full shock tower setup. where the coilover is embedded as part of the shock tower and not some slipover metal sleeve.

Im going to get the H&R Coilovers for my 04 325i. although it fits all e46's except xi's.
if you do go with evolutionsports, give me an email so ill tell them that im sending you through, theyll give a small discount or free strut bar.

Thanks Graphic for your help!
I currently have the HR cup kit installed. Do you think the drop in the rear would be more from the coilovers than the cup kit? For me, the cup kit didn't drop my rear at all when compared to stock. Thanks for help.
