Just got lowered/Eibach pro-kit & pro dampers

Whats up everyone!
I bought an eibach prokit couple of weeks ago and got my pro dampers yesterday, so I decided to install them myself in my garage. The install was fairly easy, took me about 6 hours to do it by myself. I took it for a ride after the install was done and it feels great! The steering is a lot lighter, the body roll is decreased big time and cornering is improved too. I a am very satisfied with the ride quality as its say on the box excelent!
Pics will follow up.
Thanks

Here are before and after pics, I am loving the suspension and the way it performes, the behavior of the car is better and more predictable, I am looking forward to getting a matching front sway bar and later on and a front strut tower brace by racing dynamics, that will complete my suspension setup.

Yes, not much of a difference in a drop, but I didnt care too much for the hight as long as I get a quality ride and better handling.
I am sure it will look better with wider 19" wheels

give it a few weeks. once the springs settle in, it will drop another .25in -.50in front and back. Nice to know you felt less body roll. I think i will go ahead and order my tein s-techs now.

Thanks for replies fellas!
I am hoping they'll settle too, but I dont think they will. Thats how its going to be from what I've been reading. And with the bigger wheels the gap will be reduced a little too

I have Eibach spring on my E90 too. Drop is less aggressive than HR Sport but not as stiff I assume. Enjoy !

Good choice. I had the Eibach Prokit in my previous B5 chassis Passat. I really enjoyed the performance and the ride quality.

You could simply buy pro system kit - it is kit of springs and shocks however buying springs and shocks separately you have the same outcome in the end

I have the pro system as well - less drop than HR kit but the comfort is much better.
As to the lowering after 2 or 3 weeks it will not happen. Springs settle down in 2, 3 days max and car will not get lower.
There is possibility of replacing pro kit springs with sport springs.
I have compared part numbers of shocks in pro system and sport system and it seems the shocks are the same. There is only difference in springs...
