Just lowered my ride...

2 weeks ago on H&R Sport springs & Koni Yellow shocks. The drop is perfect for me as I want lower, but not very low as you can risk denting in your oil pan. At first, there was a tiny bit of wheel gap, barely a half finger in rear, and 1 finger in front(pic below at this time). As the springs settled, I checked today and I can't fit 1 finger in the rear and barely a finger in the front. You can go lower with H&R race springs but ride might be harsher. Im happy with my setup...corners awesome w/less body roll esp w/the new Hotchkis front sway bar. No squat on launch. H&R/Koni combo I do recommend. Good luck!

You might want to consider Eibach + FSD combo, plenty of members here have that setup. The price is great and you get moderate drop, search a little bit.

BTW there are plenty of vendors here that can get you awesome pricing, try them out.

I have a 335 E93 and was considering exactly that combo, the Eibach Prokit and Koni FSD. After reading of some concerns people were having, I asked Koni directly. They said they don't list the FSD with the Eibach Springs for the 335i, but that the yellows would work.

Problems I'd heard of were related to a full load in the car (i.e. 4 passengers) resulting in hitting the bump stops too much - the guess is that the combination of progressive lowered springs and the progressive-type FSD shock didn't work well.

I'm still in exactly the same boat as the OP, have about 3" gap in front, amybe an inch in back. I have non-sport OEM suspension on 17" wheels.

Probably going to go with Eibach prokit and Koni yellows, but a little concerned that will be too stiff for a daily driver....anyone have experience/thoughts on that?
