FS or Trade: My H&R Sport Springs for your H&R Race Springs or $160 + shipping

My H&R sport springs are in great condition since I never drive my car to the snow, and they have less than 7000 miles on them. I have been getting more and more addicted to track and motorsports stuff and want a slightly firmer setup. Fitment is for E46 non-M coupe or sedan with sport package.

So if you want to trade your H&R race springs that are new or used, I'll pay for both my shipping costs and your shipping costs to do the trade(or your gas and some money if you are local). If your H&R race springs are new, I'd be willing to give extra money.

Or you could just buy my not-far-from-new H&R sport springs for $160+shipping.

EDIT: Price update

The advertised drop of these springs is 0.75 inches in front and 0.25 inches in the rear compared to a normal sport package car. But I feel like they actually lowered my car more like a full inch in the front and half an inch in the rear. Definitely a noticeable difference, but now I can no longer get into my driveway.

These springs should work with your ZHP suspension.

The springs aren't super stiff, so they do provide a ride similar to factory, but over things like speed bumps or dips in the road, you will feel the car move around a little bit more. But for the most part, how stiff or bouncy your car feels will be determined by the shocks. If your shocks wear out, then the ride will become bouncy, and I have heard Bilstein sport shocks will make your ride pretty stiff. But if you are just using these springs on standard sport suspension or if you later upgrade to some Koni shocks, your ride will stay pretty smooth and quiet.

And here are some pictures of the my car with the springs


And my car after my transmission broke:


And a picture of my garage that I can no longer get into and a good shot of the height of the front bumper with the springs:

Sport springs drop the car a little bit below a standard sport package, and race springs drop the car so that the top of the tires isn't visible.

And sorry guys for the slow response. For some reason I didn't get a notification when somebody posted in this thread

Turns out these were intended for non-sport package cars but they fit my car just fine. Not quite sure what the difference is between the springs for sport package cars and the springs for non-sport package cars.

I guess they do because I've used them with my 330i sport package and never had a single problem. Car handled well, and as you can see in the pics I posted, the car lowered after installation like they were supposed to.

I have H&R Race on my car right now... Unfortunately it's a bit too low for my daily driving...

You coming down to the LA area any time soon?

There is a small chance I might be, but nothing for sure. Sorry. On the positive side, shipping from here to LA shouldn't be too expensive at all.
