I have h&r too. I kind of like the bumpy ride :dunno:i got h&r sport lowering springs and blistein sport shocks on my xi. to be honest, H&r are to firm, you'll feel all the little bumps. i'm plan on changing them out to eibach prokit springs this summer. it should be less firm than h&r and give a little better road hugging control. but what i'm going to try to do is fit i spring onto the xi for more of a drop. like wat sam5357 said it only bring it down to stock e46 sport height.
