Installed E46 sedan Eibach Pro system kit...few more pics

Just installed an eibach pro-system kit with damper shocks and pro kit springs. pain in the ass but way worth it. front had stock shocks and the rear shocks were replaced before i got car with kyb gr2. So i figured to make em all the same plus i think the look aint that bad. This kit has a great ride and no roll on corners. i ordered some Beyern mesh 5 in 18inch but cant make up my mind.
cell pics sorry

Edit.................its getting nice out ima take some clean pics..... a few more..

Looking nice.
Would you please measure the distance from the center of the wheel to the fender both front and back?

+1 on the ride, and I'm currently looking at new suspension as well...so im glad you posted this.


I had a CSL v1 and liked it, I have an m3 rep front that I haven't put on yet...I think im going to like the m3 rep better personally...

Oh man I cant wait till I get my Pro Kit on my 04 325. Any tips on swapping these bad boys out?

Also did you like the KYB's?

A spring compressor is a must for the front. I used it on removing old and installing new setup plus a second pair of hands helps too. I took off the brakes to get extra space and that helped out. They were just 2 bolts each. replace your strut tower mounts in front and rear for me all 4 cost about $110. In the Pro system it comes with the front bump stops -not rear- but my rear were still good. also rear spring seats if worn upper and lower. took about 2hrs for each front side about hour for complete rear swap with a brake or 2. Do a complete torque of bolts. In my kit the new front tower bolts were same thread but a socket size bigger so there for it socket would not fit to tighten. I used old bolts till i could get new ones..if u run into this email me or if u want pics to see what bolt.
In my opinion the Kyb's were a lil soft but that could have been age. I have a set on my vr6 corrado with FK springs and its a solid ride nice corners
anything else just ask.
