Hi lads,

Just wondering which would be best for my 318ci sport 2004, I have 19inch bbs lm staggered (265/30/r19 on the rear) I don't want rubbing, was wondering which of the above would be better, the car looks raised since I put on the wheels so I want to lower it a bit especially the front. Running 235 on the front

Thanks

I know the price of the Eibach ProKit, but what is the price of the H&R Kit- would prefare it lower than what the Eibach provides

That looks great but im unsure if my lm's will fit in the arches if I drop the car that much. Ciaran I dont remeber your car being as low as the pics above, mabey I am wrong. The last thing I want is the problems I had with my old altezza catching the arches when I dropped it on ksport coilover and a fat pair of volk wheels.


I am thinking of playing it safe and going with the eibachs, by any chance does anyone have a pic of a coupe with msport suspension and a prokit fitted?

thanks

It's low alright! ...and with a 265 tyre on a 19" rim your going to need to roll arches to do it properly on H&R. Eibach is a slightly smaller drop - but I suspect you'll still have clearance issues, so best get the arches rolled.

its very hard to roll the archs as they are reinforced they just flare them a little
..very little thou,,, its 15 euro a corner in east coast alloys in ardee,,,
you would be better putting a 225 tyre on the back and stretchin it

I've a 255 tyre, on a 9" rear rim with zero clearance issues width-ways but it is very close to arch lip - baby finger width! I suspect the 265 tyre will snag when lowered both width and then height due to the 19" rim (off the inner wheel arch)

No need for stretched 225's - apart from anything else, it looks pants :)

Thread Resurection:eek:


Anyone know of a company in Dublin to supply and fit H&R springs?

What is the difference between the sport kit and the cup kit??

Ciars, whats on yours? I like that drop...


....also, can I actually fit the H&R's to my car with the existing shock set up (Standard NON-mSport) Seems to say here that it just suits M's??
