BMW ZHP Retro fit.

I am installing the Tischer zhp retro fit kit on my non-m 328i. Included with the kit are BMW performance shocks. When I order the springs what springs do I order m-suspension or non-m. I came across a great deal on some H&R sports but they are for a non-m. Will these fit my car and what type of drop can I expect.

ZHP owners with the H&R Sports use the non-M kit.

I have a non-M, non-sports suspension on my 2003 325i sedan and Tischer told me that I have to get sports suspension springs (front and rear) to match the Zhp retro-fit kit. That would be an additional $500 for this upgrade.

H&R Sports for Eibach pro kit would be fine. Or used Sport package springs.

Not sure if you have ordered yet but ECS tuning has the ZHP Suspension Upgrade Kit for $499. They recommend the H&R sport springs but don't have them in stock. The drop shipping on the springs was around $60 so I ordered the kit from ECS and the springs from tirerack.com. Tire Rack wanted $16 shipping. Just giving you a heads up if this is what you are looking for.

Thanks...yeah I have been getting everything together and now have everything but my FCAB's. I have gone with the H&R sports, I will post up some reviews next week after I have everything done. I am keeping my stock 328 sway bar since it's thicker than the one in the kit.
