I've heard H&R and Eibach they're pretty much the same (drop and quality) and Apex is softer. Which one has the most drop ? And which one would you recommend ? I'm not thinking for track the car ... normal driving ... target euro look drop. Please post some pics if you have them :)

You want low? Eibach Pro-kits drop the car an alarming amount, you'll be tucking the rear for sure. The front just needs a deeper spring hat to do the same.

H&R Sport will be too high for you. H&R Race have a nice stance, but they may be too stiff for your needs.

I don't like Apex in general.

In the end, just get coil-overs and set your own rates/heights. Springs are a waste, go for the best and live happily ever after.

If the coil overs are raised and lowered won't an alignment be needed each time:confused:

I've just looked at 1010tires.com (they're in Canada so there are no customs duties) and you can get some for $345.99 +taxes + shipping.

Eibachs on my e36 hardly would lower it at all......Good quality spring though, VW uses them as OEM approved springs for lowering.....

Yeah I would say eibachs are a nice subtle drop, looks good, my intrax springs are a bit of a lower drop.
