H&R Sports have a pretty aggressive drop. I wish I had gone with Eibach, I'm not into the slammed look, but the performance is pretty good when matched with Koni Yellows.

which one would look most aggressive?
H&R front 1.3 / rear 1.2
Tein front 1.4 / rear 0.6
Eibach front 1.0 / 0.8

You sure the rear drop for the Tein's is correct? My H&R springs definitely sit higher in the rear, so with those specs, the Tein springs would have a crazy raked stance that would probably look bad. Wish mine had gone down a bit more in the rear to level out the car.

The front of mine is damn low, like tucking tire, but the rear looks almost stock. Even as low as BMW's are stock, people can always tell my car is lowered.
