monte already said it. you can't slap new springs in. It is linked, dropping it 2-3 inches means you will need to move all your link and suspension mounts or shorten them. Either way it is a huge PITA for something that most people will overlook.

That being said there is the legal side of it. If say you blew a red light and a Z4 went under your door you could face jail time for involentary manslaughter or end up living in a box.

You bought a toy. Most of the people with rigs like yours treat them as toys and trailer them. If you want to make it into a driver you may want to get ahold of a member or shop that will lower it correctly using smaller springs.
