E46 Sedan with Eibach sportline springs

Hey guys, I am considering purchasing the Eibach Sportline springs for my E46 sedan and was wondering if some people could post pictures so that I can get a general idea of the drop with 18" rims. Also, any reviews or comments are welcome. Thanks in advance!

They're good springs. I want to upgrade to coilovers later, but they work for my suspension budget at the moment.

No problem man. They're great if you just want a drop and don't feel like dealing with paying for coilovers.

Evap: Any chance you can tell us how high your jack point puck deals are off the ground?

I'm looking at the same springs (Can't decide between Sport or Race) and am wondering if I will get any drop from my beaten stock sport rings...

I have no clue haha. I do know that we have to drive it up on 2x4s to get the lift arms under it at my shop.

Thats actually the perfect height for me. Is that on stock non-sport shocks?

Those are just springs fitted to the standard BMW Individual suspension. I don't know if those shocks differ from the standard ones.
