I have a stock (other than K&N filters)'99 E55 and am interested in dropping the car a bit. Would like to put 19's on it, change the pads and possibly the rotors (if they need it). Few questions.

Anybody had good luck with 19's? Any rubbing? Recommended tire sizes front/rear - don't want to throw the speedo off?

Looking at Kleemann coilover suspension to replace my 55k mile suspension - good call? Either this or the Stage-1 Evosport?

Looking at Porterfield pads - good pads? How much harder are they on the stock rotors?

Any suggestions on rotors? What are the minimum tolerances for the front and rear rotors...not sure if I need to replace them.

Thanks for any and all help.
