There are at least 100 threads on this man! To make your life a little easier, you have 3 main options: H&R Springs, Eibach Springs, or KW V3 coilovers. The springs lower you roughly 1-1.5" and the coilovers do even more than that - and are fully adjustable.

It completely depends on how much you want to spend. The springs can be done for under $1k but the coilovers run ~$3k

Oh and if you have the cash, I know sanhonda22 is selling his slightly used coilovers for a great price! :D

I am very satisfied with my Eibachs. Looks good and the ride is still the same. I have 22's as well and haven't had any issues rubbing or bottoming out.

I got my Eibachs on eBay $260 shipped. Did the install myself. If you have a nice set of tools, rent a good spring compressor, and lots of patience, you could probably do it yourself too.

I will sell you a set of new in the box B+G springs for $250 shipped.

Getting rid of the car, decided not to install them.

Ive been commuting on coilovers and have no complaints. Ride quality really gets down to coilover quality. I will say that I like my ride quality much more now then when I was running H&R Springs.

Was just searching on this topic just now , seams like people have preferences H&R's , Eibach etc . My only question would be if it's worth lowering since i have the Sport suspension Package ?

I compared my eibach to my friends sport suspension on his 7 series and mines sits just a little bit lower. If you're not satisfied with the sports suspensions height, I would recommend B&G springs which lowers the car more then eibach or h&r.
