-30 mm lowering springs

I'm thinking about upgrades for my F20 and because on previous cars I had good experience with lowering of the car just with springs, I'm considering to mount bmw or hartge set of springs that lowers ride height by 30 mm. Probably, I will switch to non rft tires also.

Does anyone of you send your F20/21 lower to the ground? You changed only springs or dumpers also?

Try coilovers. KW Variant 2 or BC BR for a cheaper option.

We have springs available for all the F20/21 series, except the M135i which will be available in a couple of weeks.

Will your springs work along with the adaptive suspension?
