Think its worth it?

I've got a sports package on my 325i...

anyone think i'll see any improvements by adding H&R sport/race ... is it worth it? anyone have any pics of before/after with these on top of their sports package?

I like the height with the sports package. For me any lower would be too low. I do plan to add spacers in the back though.

How much do they go for? (sports)

i got mine used from another e90post member. h&r sports go for about $250 new.

i reused my zsp shocks. for a non-zsp set up, i'm not sure.

yes, you should get an alignment afterwards.

I think that for most purposes the stock sport suspension is low enough. With stock wheels (17 or 18), the aftermarket sport suspensions looks too low.

Unless you are going to upgrade to at least 19 inch wheels, I would recommend keeping the stock sport springs.
