doing a suspension job on my e46 wagon. Eibach vs. H&R?
 
I have narrowed it down to the Eibach sportline springs (and will have to do shocks/struts), or the H&R sport cup suspension kit. Anyone care to compare the two or give insight on which one you would go with and why? Thanks.

You will not be disappointed if you choose Yellow Koni Struts and H&R Sport or Race Springs. Perfect combo

thanks. where do you recommend I get the konis from?

Unless being "slammed" is your priority, I would say neither. I would get H&R wagon specific springs. They are designed with the added weight of the wagon in mind. Pick Koni Yellows if you need adjustability and/or autocross. Get Bilstein Sports if you plan to keep the car for awhile and need longevity in consistent shock dampening.

yeah, i dont want to be "slammed" definitely want the car to be driveable and not rub on factory width (or Larger) tires... I am not a fan of stretch. What suspension do you have on your wagon? I didnt see any H&R wagon-specific springs on tirerack.

You weren't looking hard enough. If you put in wagon, it will bring you back H&R part # 29419 which are the wagon specific springs.

I'm on my 4th suspension setup. The pic is when I had FK coilovers. Trying to go back to civilized and refined ride and currently on OEM ZHP springs with Koni STRt with aftermarket front spring perches. Gave the Koni STRt's a try when they first came out but I would recommend the Koni Yellows instead if you want the more civil and refined ride quality. The Koni Yellows seems to have a broader dampening characteristics over the STRt.
