The Pro system is Eibach's spring with matching strut. This does not fit the XI/XDrive cars.
You can only get the Eibach springs (the ones made for the 335i) with separate struts (Koni yellows/Blistein, etc).

I myself got Eibach springs with Koni yellow and love them.

Been running it for 2 months or so.

Love the look. Brings the Xdrive down to i levels, maybe a bit lower. Dont want to go much lower as it snows over here.
Looks great on stock 17". Will be even beetter one I get 18"s.
Koni yellows are adjustable. Too hard? too soft? adjust them. Fronts you can adjust on the fly. Rear you have to remove them to do this. I set them on a aggressive but not full hard setting. Great for daily driving.

I do feel like the springs dont hold the XDrive weight well enough, like they need to be stronger. I can feel this when hitting large bumps or holes. Then I remembered these are i springs. That might be the reason. Still I wouldn't change them.
