i say wait and save your money for the PSS9, insted of paying 800$ for some H&R now and 1500 $ later for some PSS9 *thmbsdwn*
this is what i'm doing right now *th-up*

lol @ Sport = slammed.

If you want the slammed look, get Eibach Sportline or H&R Race. Be prepared to watchout for inclines and speed bumps!

Also, running Race/Sportline with stock shocks is a big no no. If you can't afford to replace the shocks AND springs right now, then don't do either. It's going to be a waste of money getting Sport springs just because they might hold out with the OEM shocks, only for you to dump them down the road for something lower. Do it once, do it right.

ebay springs are slammed. i saw some for 110 shipped. and they have a 2.4 in drop in the front and 1.6 in the rear. i wondered how good those springs are :confused:

Be honest with yourself, save for coils or the exact setups that dbworld4k mentioned.

Another option is the H&R sport cup kit for $800:

It is a suspension kit (meaning you get matched shocks and springs) and it will drop your car around 2" front and rear.

you always want to match the springs and the shocks. in general ebay and bmw dont go well together (there are a few expections and good deals to be found). I would stear clear, especially when it comes to something so crucial as suspension.

h&r race springs with blitsteins are great on my m3. can go wrong with this setup

Spoose 03-11-2008 10:49 PM

take the money you would use on the m3 mirrors, bumper, moulding etc, and get a set of springs and shocks. leave the cosmetics and go for the drivability.

^^^ i agree
