I don't feel the stock springs on the xi are up to the task do you have a recommendation that I could put with koni's for the E9X. I was looking to drop the car just a small amount to keep the travel correct. I havent looked much at coilovers as the cost and setup is a lot more.
Thanks for your suggestions and info
The two options are the Eibach Pro Kit (same part numbers as the i) and the H&R Sports.
The H&Rs are generally reviewed as a bit lower and stiffer, and the Eibachs seem to have slightly less drop, and a bit more comfortable of a ride (though both are stiffer than stock).
For the record, I own neither, that's just my summation from reading this forum. I'll be going with the Bilstein struts and Eibach springs on my e92x shortly.
