    Rear splash gaurd

    Anybody any ideas where I can et hold of rear splash gaurd, that screws into plastic rear wheel liner. Sits just in front of rear wheel on the sill. Need screws with it. Think somebody has taken wheel liner out in the past and forgot to put little splash guard back on..... Any ideas?

    Thanks Dan... Thanks for the link. Do these coil overs just swap straight in place of original shocks..... You did mention new top mounts.... Is there anything else needed as I'm having the work done which is an expense in itself.... So want to be sure they've got everything they need....

    Been in touch with H&R customer services... They assured me that standard shocks won't be affected by a 30mm drop.... Perhaps they just want to sell more springs......!!!!!!!!

    Cheers Dennis.... Really appreciate your comments. Was thinking of cancelling my order... But you have quelled any negative thoughts I had. As you said... Many people have said lowering by only 30mm shouldn't have any detrimental effects on the vehicle. Thanks again... Oh!!!... And your touring looks Fab.

    Thanks for the info.... Do you think a 30mm drop is quite a subtle drop or is it to radical....

    Hi... Need some advice. Standard e39 se on original shocks. Want to lower the vehicle subtly... Say 30mm back and front. Want to go with H&r Uprated springs. Would 30mm drop car to say Alpina B10 kinda stance.... And would just a spring change be OK... I.e... No new shocks.....Want to keep the nice ride, Don't want to break the bank... Any advice... Really appreciated...

    what lowering springs

    I'm considering dropping my se 30mm all round. Been quoted £336 all in.... Springs... Fitting... and wheel alignment. Does that sound about right.... Also someone suggested 2000plate saloon has electronic self leveling....?????

    Hi... Recently ordered H&R lowering springs to fit E39 523 saloon. Drop is 30mm front and 30 rear. Had a call from supplier asking if I am sure I had ordered the correct set up, as they felt my vehicle has a self adjusting mechanism at the rear. I'm confused. I was under the impression only touring had self leveling suspension. Please someone tell me that I can!! just change springs old for new without concern for leveling issues. I thought just a straight swap over.. I'm confused.... Help.... Please...

    Thanks... Real good advice. If I did go with just uprated springs... What drop would you recommend... 20 - 30 - 35 - 40mm.....not sure.
