    Hello all, Just after some advice.
    I've had a quote to have my front springs replaced, as the front is sitting lower than the back. Just wondered if you guys thought £300 was a resonable price. The quote was from an indy. Any help appriciated. Just thought £190 for 2 front springs was a bit steep! although genuine parts.

    I have moved this thread to the correct forum section

    £300 sounds like a lot of money to me.

    I would imagine that you could uprate your front and rear springs with Eibach replacements for that amount of money

    Sorry, wasn't sure which section to put it in.
    I thought it sounded pretty steep. Will have a look round for a better deal I think, Cheers.
    Alot of people seem to recommend eibach springs,sounds like a good buy.
    Would the car sit any lower than the standard m tech springs, as I can't go any lower because of my driveway.

    Yeah I found standard springs were £80-£90
    but a full set of eibachs around £120 delivered....

    They will be a little lower than normal though yes.

    You can always try motorfactors for matching but not BMW parts,
    will deffo be less
