Take the time and plan out exactly what you want from the car and start moving in that direction, that is what I would do next. Coming onto a forum and not giving any information about what car you own and what you want out of it will get a lot of opinions but nothing that would really help you in the big picture.

Unless you're on sport suspension, your choice in spring selection is terrible.

Things we need to know:
Year
Engine
HP goals
How much can you spend?

Sorry I forgot about that...

I'm new in the euro world, and about the suspension I just really want to lower the car a little , I'm not thinking on take to a test track or something like it. But I respect and consider everyones opinion and knowledge. So @viceprp can you tell me why my selection on spring was bad?

You should think about where you want to take the car. Do you want to stick with the stock turbo and wring what you can out of it or do you want to go bigger. Are you into looks or performance more? Definitely get everything p maintenance wise, I didn't do that before replacing my turbo and it made everything a pain.

What else is done to the car besides the springs and DP?

So far the car is completely stock , I haven't even install the springs or the down pipe. I have an idea of what I want , I'm thinking on get ful 3" mandrel bends exhaust plus the down pipe , also a front mount intercooler, but I did some research and before I do that would be hood to get a ecu chip if not ill be running lean. And that's pretty much what I want . Sorry about my low knowledge but I'm new to the euro and turbo world. o_O
