I've see an IS with the Eiback springs a it does drop it nicely. My problem was he was wearing the crap out of the inside edge of his rears. He said it stiffened the suspension a bit but not too harsh. I've got an '11 IS and planning to just throw on a set of KW coilovers. More money but I really only want to drop the front about an inch without affecting the rear so this seems like the best option. I'm running an agressive offset on my 19" VMRs and I want zero rub.

I have full eibach kit (spring and shock) on my 335is.
Front is lowered significantly while rear is dropped only little bit.
Overall, it gives one to two finger gap between tire and fender.

Eibach is perfect for spirited street driving. I recommend eibach spring and shock for comfortable city/freeway driving, and full coilover for track.

My IS is lowered on H&R + Koni Yellows, loved the combo and have no complaints. Ride the same as stock IMO.....

I am thinking of the Eibachs with the Konis for my IS too. Has anyone tried the SupremePower lowering perches just to lower the front by a 1/2"?

I have seen one E90 and one E92 with the perches, waste of money IMO.
