The PS wheels on that car are BBS LM F1 edition, a used set of 18x8 will run you around $2500 plus another $300 for custom adapters cause more then likely the bolt pattern will be 5x114. You can aquire the BBS LM for about 1250 to 1700 used depending on the size shape.

Is that the one that A32 had?

Stay away from B&G they always sag in all the reviews i read. My dads 9k had intrax and it def sat pretty low, overall the quality was not that bad.
This is was my car (crashed) with koni shocks and springs. I don't think i would go any lower it was just the perfect height. If your just going for looks i would suggest going with intrax, or cutting your current springs.

Low is great, but if it's a daily driver you probably need some ride height for every-day functionality, especially over rough roads. With my SPG that has Skandix springs (they sit very low) the car handles great on smooth flat roads, but over sharp yumpy terrain, or through rough interchanges, it is jumpy and somewhat unpredictable over bumps, especially in sharp turns. I actually find that in most situations I prefer the stock suspension over a lowered car with stiffer springs because it takes it to an excess. The car does not need to be that stiff or that low, it's just uncomfortable and slower through most of the roads I drive on.
and forget about snow use with a super low car, unless you have studded snows... on that thought, you might be able to plow peoples driveways with your airdam, so it might actually be a bonus money maker!

I've got springs from swedish dynamics that are insanely low. I'm actually looking to replace them with the eibach's because they're too low. If you look, it's alot like the slammed bimmers you speak of:
If you end up gettin rid of the eibach's please let me know. I wouldn't sell you mine or make a square trade b/c they're in rough shape...the paint is all peeling off of them. But if your Eibachs are in decent shape, i'm interested.

|Elmo||good luck! post pictures of the increased drop when you're done|

|Aero||Hmm. The B&G's look great out back but the front doesn't look quite low enough. I'm probally going to cut the bottom coil off mine and see where that get me. Thanks for all the advice guys!|

I have B+G on my NG900. I've actually raised the back by about 1/2" with rubber spacers where the coils touch.

|Castor Troy||my intrax springs are ridiculously low.|
|09-03-2008 06:59 PM|
From what I understand that Intrax springs don't have enough active coils, so you are basically always on the bumpstop/have spring binding.
If you cut or torch the springs (which is iffy) do as JK and Topher said...cut the bottom coil which isn't active. 55-60mm (from stock) is pretty much max you can do though with Koni Yellows.
