    which eibach springs? which bilstein shocks?

    I looked at bilstein shocks before.. for the good ones the price is obscene!!

    I reckon you'd be better off with something like a H&R Cup Kit..

    weren't the e36 m sport shocks bilstein?, you can get bilstein shocks for e46's that are the exact replacement,, but that doesn't mean shorter!!!, if it was me, and i was wondering about shorter shocks then i would be replaceing with anything under 35mm!!!, i persume yo are going for the sportline springs?
    as said you would be dissapointed with the pro's on a m sport, i was and mine was only a coupe ci.

    Yup I agree. Coilovers may be the best bet

    Any idea what you going to do with the msport springs once replaced?

    Does anyone know if the Eibach springs are for any model of 330d? I guess if you already have M Sport suspension/springs this isn't going to lower very much on what I have now?

    The general feeling is that the eibach pro springs wont make much if any difference to your already msport height...

    You want Eibach Sport as opposed to Pro.

    Out of curiosity whats the difference in drop between Eibach Pro and Eibach Sport springs front/back?
    To do: Far too much.....

    Me: 04 E46 320d Sport in Titan Silver

    The Mrs: 59 E92 320d Sport in Space Grey....now replaced by a 61 plate Z4 2.0L S-drive M-Sport in Deep Sea Blue with beige leather

    I'm just a lottery win away from that 335i.........and a Series 3 Discovery..........and an old Mini.........and an E30 325i........
