Thanks man! Yes I have a Hotchkis spring producing tree. Do you notice a difference between these and the H&R in ride quality? Stiffer? Softer? I only ask because H&R does not provide spring rates and i've never had a set.

Depends on your car.

Drop Specs on Confirmed Applications:
330i, 6cyl, 4dr, non sport F 1-5/8" R 1-5/8"
330i Msport, 6cyl, 2dr sport F 1-11/16", R 1-1/16"
330ci, 6cyl, 2dr, sport F 7/8", R 7/8"
330ci, 6cyl, 2dr, non sport F 7/8" R 7/8"

Check out the link I provided above for pictures of the drop. IMO it is perfect. Riverside is pretty close! I'll give you a good deal on these if you pick them up.

I've noticed they're a little softer. I like the combo of the bilsteins and hotchkis better not just because of the drop but it still handles like a beast and is noticeably more comfortable.

Bump,
see my sig, I'm on ZHP stock shocks/sturts with Hotchkis springs. No rubber pads in back.

Handles very well and awesome for DD

I had trouble finding info on these before I bought them. I love them not harsh at all and handle well. Perfect drop here is a pic on my coupe for reference. Good luck on the sale!

Will these fit my 03 330xi? And I had h&r did not like the ride every bump felt like the front end was going to fall apart. How are these compared to eibach? And is this for everything in photo or just springs?

I'm sorry but i know zero about xi's. What I like about these springs is that they are pretty close to the OEM spring rates while providing a nice and even drop. Also the spring rates are published unlike h&r's, making it easier to dial in the right strut dampening. I cant compare to Eibach because ive never owned a set but these sit perfectly inbetween the prokit and sportlines... Not too little and not too slammed. These are for spring only.
