My Ride: IR ZHP sedan
H&R Race Springs OR Eibach Sportline ... Which One?

so i'm in somewhat of a dilema ... i want to lower my car but don't know what springs to get. i'd like to go extremely low, possibly tuck a little tire all around as well as give my car that raked look? i have a 330i ZHP sedan and have narrowed it down to two choices, h&r race springs or eibach sportline springs, which one is better? i'm running 19x8.5 +40mm offset on 235/35/19R in the front and 19x9.5 +39mm offset on 265/30/19R in the rear and with that said does anyone have any pictures of such on a sedan (springs i mean, not wheel size)? any help would greatly be appreciated as i'm on the fence with this one.

regards,
tyler

The Eibach Sportline springs will lower it more than the race. 1.7 vs the H&R 1.4. But the best solution is to go with a good set of coilovers and just be done with it. With lowering springs you are going to have to replace your shocks a little more down the line. Then you will end up paying more with parts and labor, rather than just getting a set of coilovers in the first place. I recommend going with some ST coilovers. They are very affordable and we have received nothing but great reviews from all of the people who have purchased them. Including the owner of ModBargains.com. Let me know if I can help you get a set.
