Please define "better" thats a very subjective term between different products. How are they different / better than EIBACH or H&R ?

EIBACH or H&R Springs ?

Looking to get a slight drop for my 2003.5 M3.

Mine was freshly repainted when I bought it from the original owner. Wish that I had put a clear bra on at that time - big flat low surfaces like our M3's just seem to attract rock chips. If it...

exactly the drop I'm looking for, and from all the comments, EIBACH gives only a slightly harsher ride = perfect for me.
