    If you just want to fit springs then Eibach are your best bet. The OE sport springs are made by Eibach I believe.

    A sport is 20mm lower than an SE, so have a look at a few pics of a sport compared to an SE and see if that's enough drop for you, which I suspect it may be. If it's not quite enough i'd go for 30mm.

    Go down 30mm on Eibachs and get shorter shocks. That's what my saloon's on.
