Purely a personal view, but i'd go with a Pro Kit. Gives a really nice drop and rides well.

Some of the lads here have posted pics before with the Pro Kit, maybe have a look and see what you think.

Do they do a Prokit for a 535 or similar? I have read online that most people with E34 M5's use Eiback pro kits suited to a 535 etc....
Pretty sure from a quick google search, that the Eibach part number for the
Pro Kit for the 535 is 2013.140

Apologies if this is wrong.

Hmmmmm.....judging from this listing on the Eibach website i think id prefer the lower stance achieved by the Sportline Kit rather than the Pro Kit:

PRO-KIT PERFORMANCE FEDERN
Model Pro-Kit
535 I 01.1988 - 09.1995
E2013-140
Front 25-35 mm
Rear 20-30 mm

SPORTLINE SPORTFAHRWERKSFEDERN
Model Sportline
535 I 01.1988 - 09.1995
E20-20-003-01-22
Front 45-50 mm
Rear 30 mm

Whats the price difference if any between the two kits?

Cheers,
Ian.

I'm not sure exactly what the price difference is between the kits but the Sportline is a bit cheaper (less spring).

The thing is that as the Pro-Kit only drops the car by 30mm front and back you can install it without changing the standard shocks but with the Sportline dropping the front by 45-50mm I'm pretty sure you'll have to replace the shocks with ones to suit.

Hmmmm.....I would be very tempted by the lower stance of the Sportlines, unless someone has a picture of a M5 running the Prokit to guage from? I dont want to get the Prokit and after fitment realise its not the perfect stance....especially when the Sportlines could potentially be pefection! :)
