H&R Race Springs??

Hi people im just after a bit of friendly advice...
I currently have a set of eibach pro lowering springs on my e92 335i its not quite as low as i thought it would be so im now looking at the H&R race springs to lower the ride just that bit more...
My question is does anybody have the H&R Race springs not the sport springs and are they super firm?Im very happy with the ride of the eibach springs infact hardly noticeable from standard comfort.I don't want to spend out on coilovers or shocks so springs are my only option.
Also any pics would be greatly appreciated to make my decision easier.
Thanks in advance guys

Rides just like M-Sports, only looks sexier. Fully functional and smooth ride, however would not go any lower or would be scraping everywhere.

Any firmness over potholes is more to do with the 19" 313s and the runflats.

(.............and no, it's a diesel.)

Sportsline only available for the 4-pot engines AFAIK. Definitely not available for the 330d/335d, so I assume not for the 335i either.
