    Hi folks. I have been offered some springs from a Bilstein B12 kit, and as I need a new rear spring on my sport, am tempted by them. But I have heard people mention Eibach Pro Kit springs.

    I would like to know if anyone knows what the Bilstein springs would be like compared to the stuff you get as standard on the Spart's Avus pack suspension?

    And also, if I go Eibach Pro Kit, do i buy the springs for the regular 328, as these appear to be the same for all the 6 cyl models, or should I go for the M3 3.0 set?

    Cheers,
    Jay

    Eibach pro. They are not quite as harsh as the others....

    Bilstein are the best you can buy IMO, just very expensive...

    Another vote for the Eibach Pro's, they are good value for money and do the job well without the additional expense.

    Well with it being a sport, it already has the same Bilstein shocks as the M3 doesn't it?

    So I dunno whether to hold out for Eibachs or buy these springs from the B12 kit since I have been offered them for fifty quid!
