    I have a 2007 320d E91 which I just fitted 18" alloys on. This lead to the feeling that the car now is too high.
    I wonder if I can just fit the M sport springs on my standard shock absorbers, especially the front ones? I guess the rear is not that mych of a problem since the shock and spring are mounted separately.
    Are the springs interchangeable between E90/E91 and E92?

    I do not want to use Eibach or H&R etc... They lower too much in my opinion, and previous experience with Eibach is that they lower more in the front, and even though they are shorter, they are softer than standard springs, which I do no like either...

    Thanks in advance for your input.

    going to bmw and buying mtec shocks and springs is the obvious answer but I would think expensive and not terribly good value. The mtec springs mated to bilstein performance shocks would give an uprgrade over factory mtec and only minimal lowering.

    Ofcourse buying a complete Mtech kit is the best, but my standard shocks have not done so many kilometers, So the question still remains if the Mtech springs can be fitted on the standard shockabsorbers, and if the Mtech springs are shorter than my standard ones.

    Found these on Ebay.
    http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...:X:RTQ:DE:1123
    Can I just assemble them to my car without any major changes?
    Will I get a lowering of 1-2cm then?

    i would think mtec springs will be fine with standard shocks as they are only a 15mm drop as far as i remember. Yes that is a whole set and should be fine. As for how good they are I would question that these days. The shocks and springs I took of my 330 sport were not great I think good quality aftermarket stuff is way better.
