Default Lowering Springs

I recently purchased a 2010 Mini Cooper S. I was looking at lowering it with lowering springs. I was wondering if anyone could recommend some good springs and rear control arms since I know lowering the car will change the camber on the the rear tires. Thanks.

H&R makes coilovers as well as Cross both are fairly pricey

Thanks badvenge..Looking at buying a 2010 JCW coupe...Black coupe and carbon fiber, 17" brake pkg and 18" wheels blacked out is the goal.

What do you think of the JCW sport springs in this package, is it worthy or should I be loking to upgrade?

Thanks in advance.

my husband and I had a hard time trying to decide from the JCW package and the cooper S. We went with the cooper S since you can buy all the upgrades for the JCW if you'd like and just add the parts you want. Plus we're more hands on people who like to pick and choose what brand and parts are going on the car. We ordered ours last February and got it in April and love it.
