    Any body have any surplus m sport rear springs that i could borrow. Looking at trying a set of rear m sport coupe springs off any model of e46 coupe/convertable, All i want is to try a set on the rear of my coupe to see if the eibachs i have on are not higher than the m sport which i believe to be lower!
    Had this thought for a while, after buying the eibachs i noticed that the front lowered but the back was still quite high!, and all the m sports i see seem lower on the rear??????

    i always thought that mtec springs were quoted by bmw to be 15mm lower than standard?
    eibach are meant to be 30mm lower at the back?...so should be 15mm lower than mtec stuff.
    you tried asking quarry?
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    eibacks are quoted at 30mm front and 20mm rear!, m teck as you say are supposed to be 15mm rear!, prob is every m teck i see is the same or slightly lower than the eibachs!, Mine just looks to high at the rear.
