Eibach pro spring kit

Hi guys

Anyone on here running the above?

Thinking of fitting these to my E88 when my new rims turn up.

Any photos people would like to share

Many thanks

I've got a pair them (and Koni yellows) sitting in my living room waiting to be installed (waiting on my sway bar to come in) once everything's installed I'll let you know...there are lots of users on here with them and they seem to be a good all around mild drop, safe spring set.

I am looking very forward to my suspension swap now when I do the Pro Kit Springs and Struts/Shocks.

You lucked out keeping your AD plates. They're all but non-existent over here now. and won't let you keep the German ones when you leave.

Better... But I did the E93 front Sway at the same time so I can't really tell you how much of it is from the springs.

Any "harder" suspension is going to be "bumpier" than stock. You can definitely feel the road more, but it's not "Harsh"...

I hate to be this guy but if you can afford it at all, go with coil overs. You won't regret it. These are the best pictures that i have of my car. More pictures here...Both cars are dropped on kw's

Hi John, care to share the details of your wheels and tires? I don't think your other post doesn't lists details. Thanks!

Sorry to pry but what widths? 8.5" up front? What size spacer did you have to run to clear the strut tube?

Thanks for your help,
Spencer

Wish I could afford coilovers but for the time being, due to Harlequin's picture, I think the Eibach springs will be just fine!!

Noob question here though: Do you need spacers if you're going to install this Eibach pro-kit?
