    Who makes red lowering springs? I've had great success with NM Springs but they, just like the others that I am familar with, are blue, or green, or black. I realize that I could powder coat the NM's red but if someone is making a quality lowering spring in red I would rather go that route. Eibachs are shown as red in there literature but the ones I've seen in person are black.

    Hummmm, I know the Coupe is still in stealth mode, but why am I thinking it will be a "Black/Red" color combo? :idea:

    Springs aren't mine, but Swift is a high quality spring. They are working on R56 springs (I'm not sure if they have introduced them yet). And of course, they may be different due to weight, for the Coupeeeeeeee.:D

    I've ordered NM Springs and H-Sport control arms, the same combination I've used in the past with great success. I am having the springs and control arm bodies powder coated red. I'll post up photos when I get them ready to install.
