Since you have the SP, and you want my kind of lowering, you have to go with #29484.

29484=Sport Springs w/Sport Package cars (red)
and
29484=Race Spings w/Regular Suspension cars. (blue)

So you only have 1 choice.

29484 Sport Springs

The race springs do not fit our convertibles with SP

I know how you feel. But if you see my car, you may judge otherwise. You really have to see them on a car to tell.

If you like my drop and decide that its the kind that you want, then go with 29484.

by the way, the link doesnt work

thats part of the reason why if you have the sport package it only drops 0.75/0.25 because the SP is already low.

After looking at the installation procedure, i'd say if you have a set of decent air/power tools and a spring compressor. it can be a great weekend project!

I picked up my set from a local dealer and had a friend's shop put it in for me. My price wouldn't be an actual retail price with labor. but i'd say a good price for the springs with labor should run about 350-400

29484 Sport Springs.

29484 Race is for cars with regular suspension.

Looks Great! Question for you....

How difficult was the front bumper reflector replacement? I've done OEM clears all around and I hate the orange reflector look on the Titanium Silver bumper.

red or blue

It says in the store that the blue(sports springs) are only available for the sedan & touring. The red(race springs) is available for the coupe. So, is it the red(race) or blue(sport) springs for my 330ci with SP? I am ready to place the order but am confused.

the reflectors are fairly easy to put in. there is a very nice DIY write up here. But it is a pain to put it on becuse u'd have to be careful not to crack it. I cracked mine =(. but oh well. Some ppl have painted them instead. may look cleaner that way.

Good luck
