I like the look of stanced rides, there's a site called e46 fanatics and they have a thread called flush/stanced, and they have really nice looking cars ther, also look for stance nation nice cars there as well, do watcha like not everybody has to like it lol.... Myself Im more into performance but I like the way a lowerd car looks and handles, but not too low because Im into speed

I'm Canadian, and Canadians know how to read - OP asked for info on coilovers that can drop 2+ inches, not how Stohlen thought it would look.
It seems you prove our (canadian) view on Americans being ignorant, congratulations.

Tell me why would one want to do this to the ultimate driving machine??? This is NOT a Honda Accord. IMO will look bad and be virtually undrivable. I don't get it. I guess to each their own...

Everyone has their opinions, likes, dislikes... everyone is different, it's what makes people unique... I myself actually want to drop my 135 2+ or so inches as well because i like the look/functionality of a dropped car. Yes being DUMPED has its draw backs with having to take much more care driving and avoiding angles, pot holes ect but I had a 2009 Audi TT S-line dumped on coils with stanced wheels and slight poke out of the back rims and I had adults who drove Porsche's, Farrari's and such complimenting my car all the time. Plus at 150+mph the car felt like it was on rails, unlike the 135 which at 130mph I feel like the slightest gust of wind can throw me to the next lane....
Pix of it




But anyway, back to OP's topic... I too am interested in the lowest dropping springs and coils and see which is best bang for buck and more worth it.

ST's are the best for drop on a budget IMO.

I'd recommend talking to the guys at Bag Riders and seeing how much it'd be for them to make you a custom air setup though. At this point bags can be better performance-wise then coils.

Looks awesome

I just bought the BC Racing extreme drop coilovers and they suck.
I lowered the rear all the way down and I still have a finger gap.
The front can go really low. My Tein springs where lower in the rear then with the BC's. I want to return them and get a set of D2 Racing

How's the ride quality?
