My Ride: E46 325i
Opinions on some springs for a 02 325i?

Well, I am in a little dilema.. I have a 2002 bmw 325i that I just recently purchased. Now my Question for you guys is--What springs can I get so that the entended warranty that I purchased does not go to $hit on the vehicle? I would be happy with something that gets me to the hight of a ZHP. I want to throw some 05 sport package wheels on there aswell.. I want it to look like the actual sport package hight(if not lower). I remember my cousing put some sport package wheels on his 03 325i and that thing looked like a 4x4..

Any aftermarket part will not void your warranty unless the part can be contributed to the specific failure. For example if you get an exhaust and your coolant system dies they cannot blame it on the exhaust. Springs alone is not enough to void a warranty.

For a moderate drop I would suggest either the Eibach Pro Kit or H&R Sport springs. For a more aggressive drop with springs I would recommend the H&R Race springs.

HR Race



Eibach Pro Kit



HR Sport



Let me know if you guys have any other questions.

Do the H&R Cupkit - best mod I've done yet. Touring for a ZHP-esque drop and Sport for a more slammed look. Hands down the best decision! GL!

The Cup Kit is a great spring/shock combo. We do also offer the Cup Kit as well.
