Springs or KW?

Hey guys, I'm in a dilemma between purchasing KW or springs. KW will set me back longer for wheels. Springs will save me enough $ to get other parts (spacers, and wheels a lot sooner) What should I do?

I don't plan on tracking my car. I just want it dropped!

I would just do the coilovers to be honest. I've been on springs with my past cars, and eventually, later down the road, you'll want coilovers. So if you look at it that way, I wouldn't spend my money on springs now, might as well keep THAT portion of your cash, and put that towards the wheels.

That's what I think at least

i vote for springs. most of us daily drivers are running springs and it's fine.

i would say springs for a daily driver. do you have edc?

if you do have edc then springs shouldnt be an issue since you can adjust the feel of your car as well, something you will lose with KWs

Agreed!

That's what we're running on our E92 M3, and our 135i.
