Eibach Pro Street-S coilovers

Picked up these Eibach coilovers cheap on ebay...no one else bid, I got them for $550....wasn't sure I was going to use them or re-sell them....well, I installed the fronts yesterday...very easy install, just watch your fenders when pulling out the stock strut....love the stainless steel on these, also love that the sway-bar attachment is movable...very easy to line up the sway bar link.
As you can see, I dialed them all the way up...at this position, they're exactly stock height. It's definitely stiffer than stock, but a lot of that is coming from the spring being compressed so much....I'm going to lower it down about 3/4", which I think will be about right for street use....

Love the look of these...of course, the big brakes help with that, too.

I've searched both ways, but I found these using this: Eibach 2085.711

That's Eibach's product number for Pro Street-S coilovers for 1 series and some 3 series. They sell for around $1150 on the net. 2085.712 also fits, they have adjustable dampening and sell for around $1750...

I'm thinking about picking these up, I've been trying to read up on them and it seems they are very similar to kw v1s. How do you like the ride on these?

Bringing up an old thread, but saw that Blacksport is still running these I think? Can you or anyone provide a review on these, are they a good mix between daily driving and track?
