Talking Lowering Springs + New Struts > Coilovers

Hey all. My 'new' 1M is enroute and I'm pumped!

My past couple cars were fitted with harsh coilovers, that made everyday driving less enjoyable, so I'm looking for a slightly lower than stock set-up, with everyday driveablility.

That being said, I'm considering Eibach or H&R lowering springs. I'm not looking to go too agressive, just want to fill the front wheel gap.

The car has 42k miles, and is nearly 10-years old at this point so I suppose I might as well fit a set of new struts while I'm at it.

To this end, I'm considering just getting Bilstein OE replacements or a set of the Bilstein B6.

Likely also adding 10 or 12mm spacers.

Does anyone on here have experience with this set-up? I found a few old threads that never closed the loop. TIA!

I got eibach springs personally. There were around 100 new shipped directly from eibach.

Hi there!

I'm kinda new to the whole bmw scene and I don't know where to start with this problem.

Recently my stock 2011 bmw 128i with 105k miles, the n52 engine, and a automatic transmission, started to stumble while idling at a light and will sometimes kinda jerk past 3k rpm. I only see about a 100 rpm drop when it does this, but it is enough to shake the car a bit. I don't have a check engine light on at all, which is making this a fair bit harder to figure out. I have had some small issues with injectors in the past that seemed to go away on its own with a bottle of injector cleaner and that has lasted me for 10k miles.

At this point the only things I can think of being the problem would be the vannos soleniods, spark plugs, or (hopefully not) something in the trans, but those options don't narrow it down much.tweakbox appvalley

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
