dont know about your car but my 335i sits on the ground as it is, any lower and it would be scraping the road, So why do you want to lower yours anymore????

I've never heard of those brands so I cannot vouch for quality.

I would stick with well known, quality brands. H&R, bilstein, Koni, etc

I'm running h&r coil overs on pretty much the lowest setting. I never scrape. You just have to know how to drive a lowered car

Thats the thing, Iam trying to find out the quality of stagg shocks and vogtland springs. I would have went with raceland coilovers for about $370 but they do not manufacture them for e90s....yet.

Don't do that. Buy spring and shock combo from a reputable brand. $370 doesn't even cover shocks from bilstein.

well is there a nice spring and shock combo thats 500 or less. I was thinking off buying a set of coilovers ($1,000 limit) but not sure if I should spend that much money on a suspension upgrade.

None that I know of. A spring and shock combo from the companies I mentioned above would run you about $800. Another $200 for install.

The reason I stress a better company is that they sell you a much better warranty. Bilstein has a lifetime warranty on their shocks/struts.

The company Stagg also has a lifetime warranty according to some posts that I been reading online. But looking right now I fail to find that lifetime warranty. As you probably know the reason I'm aiming for this set is because of the price about $420 a shock and spring combo. I guess if I fork out little more than twice the amount I can get some coilovers. Its just I'm in between jobs and college, and my income is not that great. So, I'm hesitating whether or not to go for a coilover set that's $1,000 or less.
