OK,

I'm shopping around for LED Tail Lights for my 2003 325xi. I don't want to knock any particular sponsor or vendor, but why is there such a varied price range on these?

Thanks for the pics.
The xi rides a lot higher. I can see with the H&R setup it's higher than the non xi's with H&R's that I've seen.

I went with the Eibach's because of the NYC/Jersey streets.

I'm looking at the car and it seems to be about the same height.

Here are before and after pics.

So you don't have to remove the rear shocks to replace the rear springs? I'm also looking into new rear shock mounts when I do it.
