    Thought i would measure up the heights at the rear of the car now the springs have been on over 6 months,
    it started at standard
    front = 36.6 cm
    rear = 34.8cm
    http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...1&d=1266334845

    it now stands at front passenger 34.5
    front driver 34
    rear passenger 34.5
    rear driver 33.1
    the last time i checked a standard clubsport is front 36 rear 33.5! so that means the clubsport rear spring is just a low as the eibachs!

    verts and clubsports look low as standard.

    I had Eibachs installed on my M3 Coupe as i was not happy with the amount of gaps between the arches on OEM 19''s. Its still not great, but is a slight improvement without compromising to much on driveability.

    Thinking of Coilovers next.

    worst thing is that it would look a lot better if the rear passenger was as low as the rear drivers side!, might have a look at removing the spring pads on that side and see if i can get some thin ones instead.

    I've got the same springs as you vaux and mines dropped considerably more than that!!

    Maybe it's time for coilovers as empower said!!!
