    Hi guys,

    Decided to order some lowering springs for my car, currently I have standard suspension on the rear and apex (40mm) on the front. Ive decided to go for a Eibach sportline kit over the pro kit as it gives just a little extra drop....

    I saved this site (thanks baderlfc) and they sell the kit for £110.77 exvat

    http://www.tdi-plc.com/catalog/eibac...5-p-15746.html

    Does anybody know of anywhere else you can buy eibach springs for a good price? ECP do stock them but the 25% discount code doesnt work on them otherwise that would of been great!!

    Thanks in advance..................

    As much as possible really mate without having dreadful performance and comfort (hence why im not going for cheap coilovers) The pro kit lists to be around 25mm front and 10mm rear which is not going to be enough for what im after. The sportline kit states a drop of around 45-50mm front and 30mm rear which should be spot on

    Whats your thoughts...?

    +1!

    Steve beat me too it, I can't recommend my Weitec springs enough!

    I know Eibach are generally regarded as the spring of choice for BMW drivers but the sportlines aren't as good as the pro's.. and as you rightly say the pro's don't won't be low enough!

    Check out prices for Weitec, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.. again got mine from Venom..

    Cheers Steve & Mike

    I've been lucky enough to have been given a full set of E46 M3 shocks (Thanks Plumb!) so once it's confirmed they are a direct fit I will look at what springs to get.

    I'm not 100% on the sport ones but it's just trying to find the right combination between looks and comfort!

    Will check out the ones you have recommended....
