Lowering kit
So I am wanting to buy some shocks for my 07 mini cooper s and I was wondering if it is worth my while to just buy the springs or if i should go all the way and buy the shocks as well.

if anyone has any input please let me know, thanks.

Depends on several factors ,
How many miles on the stock set up ?
What springs/drop you go with ?
Personal driving style /any autocross ect in the future?
Or best sest up invest in the adjustable coilover setup with adjustable ride height and adjustable struts

I think the brand was called vogtland, and i have 43 thousand roughly and i dont drive crazy just on the street normaly. i just kind of want it to look more clean cut take away the gap between the tire and my car, but the guy i talked to that was selling the springs said that it will lower it and will still keep it having a good ride. He said that it would wear out my shocks faster so i would have to replace them before 80 thousand anywho, idk maybe i am thinking i should just go with a full shocks and spring set.. what do you think about that?

Also remember you are going to need adjustable rear trailing arms and front camber plates to allow proper alignment
