E93 Convertible Guys...What are you lowered on??

I'm looking for options to lower my E93 at the moment and have found a few options:

Eibach Springs
KWV3 Coilovers
KW Spring Sleeve Kit


What are you vert guys lowered on? I'm looking to get a decent drop while hopefully keep the car as comfortable on the street as possible.

I've read good things about Ground Control but their website lists only E92 and E90s for their Coilover kit. Any suggestions and pics if possible?

Dinan Stage I for me too. Better drop on the E93 than the Dinan's on E90/92 for whatever reason.

^^ thanks for the pic...drop looks really good on the eibachs. Would you say the front sits higher than the rear for our e93's? I've heard eibachs generally make the coupes sit higher in the front

I dont think so. I think its a pretty even drop. Keep in mind, as far as eibachs go, the E93 springs are a different part # than the coupes. Here's a pic on my winter setup which are the stock 18's.

Dinan stage 2 very happy with the stance and the improved handling its my DD, so did not see the need for the stage 3 (since i believe its just the addition of camber plates)

Bilstien PSS10s

Car is lower with better handling plus more comfort than OEM.
