Eibach sportline will give a fairly low drop too, but afaik you'll have to get new
shocks too as stock ones wont last long

I just put two brand new shocks in the front two weeks ago..Backs are fine as far as i know..If they dont last long il replace them if need be.

Any idea who supply and fit?

We can get you Eibach springs, €185 for the ProKit or €190 for the Sportline. Delivery by courier would be €15 extra if needed.

Is yours a manual?

Don I fitted H&R's to my old 323ci with standard shock and never had a
problem in the 2 yearsw after fitting them and I know the fellow that has the car now and the oem shock are still in the car.

Sorry, missed your reply!

We just supply, can recommend someone to fit for you though. Sportline would give the biggest drop.

Prokit drops front approx 25mm, rear 10mm

Sportline drops front approx 30-35mm, rear 15mm

Check out my car thread to see a sportline drop. It's a small bit more than the H&R.

In relation to shocks, I have SE shocks and recentally had the car up on a ramp and the shocks are still perfect.
