H&R Sport Springs

I drive a 2010 BMW 335xi sedan. I was looking into getting rims and H&R lowering springs for my car. Wondering how the ride quality will be affected and if the springs will make a big difference with the performance of my car. When I'm driving hard and taking a corner I can feel the body roll quite a bit. I used to drive a 350Z and I have to say that the handling was a lot better with that car. I just want that feeling back with my BMW. Any other suggestions would be nice. I was also thinking about sway bars, any suggestions with that?

I know this is the common response on here but seriously, you should do a lot of searching on here about this. There are sooooooo many threads on here with people giving their opinions/experience with just about every setup with this car.

With that said, if you just put the springs on, your car will handle a little better with a little less body roll. But it won't be that big of a difference. If you really want no body roll around corners, get coils. Or make sure you get Koni Yellows along with the H&R Sports.

Get shocks with your lowering springs - you're going to feel the handling difference with just the springs but the shocks will really complete the setup (and give you a less harsh ride!) Of course, coilovers are the other option but springs/shocks are a great mod that is relatively cost effective.

maybe we should switch the location of the search button and the new thread button.
