Shocks for 2007 328xi Sedan with H&R Sport Springs



I need to replace the shocks on my 07 328xi Sedan.

It's currently setup with H&R Sport Springs and stock shocks (non-sport)

I've been researching and I'm getting mixed answers as to what shocks to use with this setup.

Looking for suggestions

Thanks in advance

The answer depends on what you’re looking to do. Budget? Performance? Comfort? Hard to say without knowing what your goal is here.

I guess a balance of all the above. Would I have many options for a car with H&R Sport Springs?

Hands down Koni Yellow adjustable are the best shocks I’ve ever run on a daily driver, outside of coil overs. They’re so comfortable yet tight, I wouldn’t buy anything else.

I have them paired to H&R Sport on my daily driven E90 328i. Absolutely love them.

Bilstein Sport is another option but at that price you’re knocking on Koni’s doors. May as well get the superior product anyways.

It's almost an 11 year old car so I don't want to spend more money than necessary. That should shed some light to your original question. I love the car and it's treated me well... I'm actually on the fence of trading it in for shitty daily but I don't want to that because I will sacrifice a whole lot more.

I've used Koni Oranges (STR.T) which are a little bit cheaper than the yellows (Sport). I've had the oranges on my old E46 and am planning to run them on my E90. I also found them to be comfortable and tight over the stock suspension.

I can't comment on the yellows as I've never used them, but if cost is a major factor, I would recommend the oranges. I bought mine for ~$700 incl. HST.
