Bmw x5 4.8is (2004) BC coilovers

Hi
Just want to pick your brains regarding an issue...I've just bought a 2004 X5 4.8is le mans blue with champagne leather now the air suspension is faulty no surprise there.
I want change to bc coilovers but the bc rears have the spring over the strut like the fronts so my question is what happens to the standard rear air bag do you remove or just leave it there and disconnect all the hoses etc.
Also what's your thoughts on wheel spacers I've heard 25mm front and 30mm rears fill the arches nicely.
Thanks

I don't think there's any harm with leaving the airbag in place, but I'm sure if you use the search facility you'll find more info on the subject
