Perhaps you could get a quick measurement with a tape measure at the front bumper and at the rear bumper

Wow, this thread is great. Right now I have just H&R sport springs on stock dampers. Hopefully next year I can afford to get the Bilstein Sport dampers. Also, my dad is building a shop with a hoist, so hopefully I can swap out the rear sway bar myself, and replace it with an M3 sway bar and bushings. (I prefer to do all of my own work)

Sorry for the delay. The front bumper ground clearence seems to be 6 1/2 inches and the rear appears to be 9 1/2 inches.

This is an amazing thread, waiting to hear if this "new" option is as great as it is sounding, but have learned alot just from reading what is already up here.

I am so pissed at the suspension differences between the awd and rwd........as much as i love having awd in the snow, and having ahd subarus before.......i also want to change out this suspension, have height and rebound adjustability, and have some great performance without spending 3 grand.

Subscribed.

Just paid for the coilovers. Pricing is very good and there have been some very smart people that have had their hand in the production of this kit (myself excluded ).

I'll do a full write up after the install and after I've had some time to form an opinion.

Just picked up the car. Just a quick note.
The front measures 25.75 (was 26.5) and rear 25.5 (was 26.0). I will give it a couple of weeks to settle.
So it is F 3/4 and R 1/2 inch drop.
Those bilsteins are pushing it up probably a half inch. More later.

Just to verify, this is from stock, correct.

for the people with the bilstein/eibach or even h&r springs, what alignment specs did you use?

would they use the 328i sport alignment settings or the stock e90xi settings?

Would eibach pro springs with Koni FSD struts work on a 335xi (e90) to keep the OEM comfort over potholes and expansion joints while improving turn-in and handling?

I just want a better look to the car and don't want to be driving a super stiff vehicle. My wife also drives the car 40% of the time and she would not appreciate a rough or harsh ride.
