Help! H&r Coilovers Or Eibach Coilovers

I have a 2010 135i. I'm looking to get coilovers. I was choosing between the H&R Street Performance Coilovers and Eibach Pro-Street S Coilovers. Which one do you think is best when it comes to ride quality, performance and height? basically I don't want my car to be too low, but I don't want any gap, especially in the rear. Price wise both are almost the same so that's out of the question.

Are you going to be tracking the car at all? If not, take a look at ST coilovers. I believe they are a little cheaper even than those two and a lot of people on here have them and like them. I've riden in an A4 with ST's and it was extremely comfortable. I will more than likely be going with the ST's as I don't need the dampening adjustability just yet.

What is more important to you? Adjustable height, ride or performance?

Performance wise, both those options might not even be as good as stock.

If you are OK with losing the ability to adjust the height then I would suggest a more performance oriented set up of Swift Springs and Koni S/A shocks.

You can custom order the spring rates and adjust the shocks for the driving conditions and it's roughly the same price.

Also, in case someone hasnít mentioned it, until you upgrade your rear subframe bushings you wont be getting the full effect of your suspension upgrades.
