God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

Welcome...
First off, we need more information. How was the car lowered? Was it done with heated or cut coil springs, aftermarket lowering springs or coil overs. What brand and model are they? Finally, how low would you like it? Coilovers are the ultimate setup and gives you a wide range of height options. Whereas aftermarket lowering springs have progressive spring rates and a set height. Heating or cut coils sacrifices rides quality and are the least desirable ways to get that lowered stance.
