    If you want it that low youd need to look at coilovers and about 60mm ish drop. i have 45mm and its nice but i would like the rear sitting a bit lower

    I've seen a few sets of lowering springs for around £120, to lower all around by 30mm. Is that decent value for money or...?

    asked the same question a while back.
    jamex springs are £70 for a set of 35mm drop
    but you pretty much get what you pay for
    eibach seems to be the spring of choice here for about £150
    you've also got irmscher for about £250 which are specifically made for the model
    depends how deep your pockets are!!!!!!!

    All true, however I don't think any of these springs alone (-45mm max for Pi springs, most of the others are -30-35mm I think) are going to give the op a 'slammed' look. Coilovers or machined springs are the only way forward I think
