Springs question

Hey all,

New to the forum and bmw as well. Just picked up my first one. 2008 135i M sport. Love it. Got a great deal on some 19' forged trafficstars and just threw them on. Order the koni yellows as well. Problem I'm having is the rubbing on hard turns and bumps. I'll get the fenders rolled but I was wondering about springs. I was gonna go with the H&R sport springs but that's too much of a drop with the wheels I have on now. Any suggestions on sport springs with minimal drop?

Thanks!

Thanks!

What about the H&R OE springs? Minimal drop, cheaper than the BMW Performance ones.
Thoughts?

You need to list the tire and wheel spec/sizes. Alot of members here can comment on their aggressive set ups.
Probably you need Camber up front to fit wheels without other issues

HR OE kit has issues with the rake, look them up here.
