I need to lower my 2004 330ci now that I have put on my new wheels.

I know I want to reduce the fender gap to give it a clean sporty appearance, and im not planning on slamming or anything really low. I also know I want the ride quality to change as little as possible when compared to factory sport suspension on 18 inch wheels.

I realize that lowering my car in any way is going to make it ride stiffer, but my goal is to have it on height adjustable coilovers that won't completely change the character of my car.

I don't plan on ever tracking this car, so adjustable dampers are not a priority.

I'm willing to spend up to around $1500

Cruising around the Internet I have narrowed it down to two different coilovers that are both more focused on comfort instead of track days compared to other offerings.

KW Street Comfort and H&R Street Performance

Any opinions about these sytems are welcome to be shared here, I wanna make sure I'm doing this right :woot:

OP, take a look at Ground Control adjustable coilover springs & Koni FSD. I think this setup can out perform the other ones, based on your needs.

This is the Koni FSD part number you need for lowering springs #2100 4006

your going to get a set of coils, adjust them once and never touch them again. just get shocks and springs or a cup kit. i have the h&r sport cup and i love the way it sits, and it isnt harsh AT ALL. zero harshness. nada,

Thanks for the feedback everybody
The reason I'm not comfortable just buying lowering springs is because im looking for much less of a drop than average, I know exactly where I want the car to sit and i want to be able to dial it in myself :)
