Lowering 30mm using what springs?

I was considering the NM springs. ECS sells. Anyone with a better suggestion?

NM, AST, and H&R are the most popular. It depends on the drop, some drop more or less on brand. H&R drop a little more.

We stock the NM, Megan, Eibach, and H&R. So it will depend on what your goal is to make a recommendation.

I just want to lower the JCW an inch or 30mm. It's for looks. I think it looks too high. If I get a little better handling great. I drive highway so lowering is not a concern.

NM, H&R we have in stock right now. H&R will get you ~1.4 drop so that might be too low. NM is closer to your 1" goal. Megans and madness are closer to mild drops. https://www.ecstuning.com/Mini-2011-...nsion/Springs/

Yeah I'm thinking NM. They work with the current suspension? Also how can you tell if you're JCW has the JCW suspension kit? Don't they come with the car? Or is that an option I had to buy? I notice you sell the add on kit.

JCWs have the sport suspension stock unless you ordered the JCW suspension kit on top that has the red JCW springs. (Most people did not get that)
