    I am about replace my rotors, shocks and coilovers but at the same time I want to take the car down some more but wasn't sure how far I could go before I run into problems. Besides that, I am sure some new M8 members would like to know too.

    My Eibachs claim they drop 1.5 inches. However I am convinced once they settle in, it's a 2 inch drop. I can't complain.

    DO what I'm planning on doing, cut one loop on each spring. That will bring you down another 1.5 if I'm not mistaking. Someone feel free to chime in.

    I have already cut some off, I don't remember if it was one or 1.25 coils. I would love to have them tucked in just a little but at the same time I don't Want to bottom out my new coilovers/shocks either. I would be happy if the gap was less to but I want more. I am going go game another quarter off or maybe 1/3 and see where I end up.
