Advice on my suspension set up.... needs to be lower !

Hi Guys,

I have Eibach springs fitted to my 650i Sport. Now I feel I want to go a bit lower so what would you guys suggest? Shall I just fit some H&R springs and that will give me a lower drop to what I already have or are there any other good springs on the market that will help me achieve what I am looking for? I need the arches sitting just on top of the tyre as the eibachs still leave a gap.

Thank you in advance.

I think your car looks great as is, but to get lower you could go with KW coilovers.

Coilovers are the only way to go.

KW Variant 3. Don't cheap out on no-name coilovers, they will not last. I think you can also get Bilstein PSS9s for the E63/E64, which are good but not quite as good as the KWs.
