Actually used to have a Mitsubishi eclipse with H&R sport springs and didnt change my structs (even though I should have)
You are saying the H&R springs don't make THAT much of a difference and the "travel" in the OEM BMW sport structs is good enough for the lowered the H&R springs provide?
What other good options are out there? Not looking to slam my car OR spend 1000's on a coilover system, etc. Just a mild drop for a reasonable price.
