put it like this a H & R cup kit lowers the car supposedly 2.1" 1.7" thats why I got the Sachs setup because it lowers the car slightly less.

Wait... I'm confused. So reducing your center of gravity and lowering your car doesn't improve performance? That is the basic principal behind dropping your car. Lower center of gravity = better control.

Just dropping your car will not turn it into a "cornering machine." No spring or suspension setup will acomplish this but rather a group of items: sway bars, strut bars, xbrace, tires (the most important), etc. Having owned the Sachs for a while and having rode/driven other E36s with H&R, I much rather prefer my cars' ride and handling abilites compared to the others.
