Question H&R Sport or Eibach Pro Kit???

Hey Dudes!

I'm thinking of getting a set of springs for my 01' 330ci. Do you guys have any feedback which would be better for performance and pics???

Thanks!

I'm in pretty much the same position as you. I'd like to lower my car for this summer with some springs. I was originally planning on going with the Eibach Pro Kit, but then I came across UUC v2 springs....... check them out, i'll be putting those on my car this summer

i'm swaping out my Pro Kit for H&R right now.. the pro kit is very soft.

It all depends on the amount of ride quality your looking for

I've heard that as well regarding the Eibachs. I'm planning on trying out the UUC's. Hopefully I get the drop that I want. Would you happen to know of any decent shops to get the installed? And how much an install will cost?

^^^ i would take it to wheel and tire zone.. i think they even do allignments as well..

it's usually $250-350 to re-and-re the springs.. it's best left to the pro's but can be done by anyone with knowledge of mechanics.. you can rent the spring clamps at Canadian Tire.

I figured that!!!! I was reading some posts on E46fanatics.com and peeps were saying the Eibach does tend to sag after a period of time.

I was now thinking of either H&R Sport and TEIN S.Tech springs.

H&R Sport is;
Front - .75
Rear - .25

TEIN S.Tech is;
Front - 1.3
Rear - .94

Any feedback or suggestions on the two products.

Thanks!

u guys, i ran H&R on my e46, the ride was horrible with stock shocks

i highly recommend that you get a cup kit or change your shocks as well... your shocks will degrade with time, and it'll be like your riding in a buick... i'm now running fk coilovers, they're ok.. could be a bit more stiff tho
