eibach pro-kit or H&R sport
 
ive done alot of searching and seen many mixed reviews on the two sets of springs when putting them on stock suspension but i want to ask a more specific question. since the drop seems to be visually the same in terms of appeal IMO, i would like to know which set will have the least risk to the stock suspension in the car and give me the best quality ride, the eibach pro-kit spring set, or the H&R Sport spring set? any advice is appreciated. thanks

I had the Eibachs and didn't like them. The H&R Sports will be better handling wise and drop just a tad more up front, not too much, but enough to make a difference. There's a reason why not many people have the Eibachs.

what did you not like about the Eibachs?

I thought tons of people were rolling on Eibachs...

Any proof or more than just a ballpark statement?

I just put on Eibachs and have to say that I love them. From what I read before buying, H&R is lower and gives you a raked look. Also read that the Eibachs are the smallest drop you could do, and would have the least amount of wear on the stock suspension.

They are both great choices, Eibach offers an even drop all around while H&R has the raked look. I find H&R to feel a bit sharper and offer better turn in but they do run a tad stiffer than Eibach. We offer both for your car so let me know if I can help out.

Eibach will provide you with the drop you're looking for but performance wise wont be much different from stock. The Sports are a good choice with eliminating the fender gap and also providing a better feel behind the wheel. If you really want to dump it go with H&R Races!!!

Sorry for thread jack but what H&R springs are on my car? The fronts tuck wheels. I know they are H&R because it is stamped on the springs.

I believe the E46 M3 only have H&R sports available.

Do u have the sport suspension/ Sport pkg from the factory? Eibach says it's a 1.4 drop all the way around without it and a "minimal" drop with it. I'm trying to find out what is "minimal" with it and how does it look. :hmm
