all you need is some new springs, if want to get better handling out of it then you could get some sport dampers as well, but probably wouldnt be a good idea if you still have a warranty. check out h&r's website they make some of the best springs out there.

moving to E46

What do you think about h&r cups? thanks for the info. If i get new springs, i'll need new struts as well right?

you will need a spring/shock combo. lowering the car more than 0.5 to 0.75 inches puts the shock absorbers out of useful piston range.

again, dinan has the goodies here...

Dinan is very good, but i think they are overpriced. H&R has some of the best springs/shocks around.

H&R Website

If you're looking for more of a drop, you can go with the cupkit like L337 has on his car. There is also the coilovers. The coilovers are more expensive, but you can adjust the ride height yourself.
