Eibach Pro Street S Coilovers

Has anyone tried Eibach Pro Street S coilovers on their e90? Are coilovers better than lowering springs?

Haven't heard anything about the Eibach coilovers but what I can tell you is that coilovers are a WAY better solution than lower spring. From my experience springs are really harsh and don't improve handling (mine actually made my handling worse on my S4). Coilovers only the other hand can usually be adjusted to your driving style.

Eibach is using KW stainless steel shock bodies for their coilovers.
They probably give the same ride as KW.

I actually contacted Eibach about the Pro Street S, and currently it's only offered for the e93 only!
I didn't know that e93 and e92 had different fitment??

Likely the spring rates are slightly different.

Not necessarily. What coilovers suspensions do is allow you to set your own ride height thru a specific range of options. SOME coilover system allow you to adjust dampening..but not all. My Bilstein PSS9 coilovers allow damper adjustment (shocks) and ride height adjustment with adjustable perches..that raise or lower the car at all four corners of the car.
