330i springs?

Hey guys, I just bought a 2001 330i and when I went to do the safety inspection I found out that I need new rear coil springs.Now BMW quoted me at 550 parts + 345 labor ... (we all know the dealers high prices) so now Im thinking of getting a new set of springs . Now the questions: OEM or Aftermarket ? Tein S.Tech Springs or Eibach pro kits? I want the slammed look but also something that can help me all year around, without having to switch to stock spring in winter or smth .
Please help a newbie with any suggestions )

Hi there!

We have a few options for your spring problem!

We have oem springs available, as well as lowering kits.


Both options are cheaper then the parts quote you got , and including installation!

Give me a call or email for more info and exact pricing.

Steel if you are still around, how do you like your new springs vs. OEM?

love the drop .... and the handling improved drastically ... the car is "glued " to the road , can cut corners at higher speeds with np, no body roll .... as for the harshness of the ride, they are stiffer then the OEM but i can't really feel a big diffrence . On hwy and good roads the car just floats . I live in downtown and some of the street are not that smooth so u have to reduce the speed ... when u see a pothole or speed bumps ... u cant just fly by them as the same speed as OEM springs ... u need to pay extra attention thats is ... as for going lower then eibach pro kits, im runing OEM rims and tires 17'' , and with 4 ppl in the car + trunk full i still dont rub, so im pretty happy with my decision ...all up to u how low do u wanna go ) ... Also OEM cots more and i heard that they still gonna brake (especially back ones) its a common problem wth the e46 springs ... so might as well pay less and change the look of ur car also ...
