Assuming a .6 inch drop with the OEM sport suspension, I assume that the Eibach springs would lower the car .6 inches more in the front and .4 inches more in the back. Is this correct?

What did you do with your factory ZSP springs? Are they for sale? I want to get 162s or 195s and put them on my base 325i, but I'm reluctant because the gap may be a little too much. I wonder if the drop with the factory ZSP springs is substantial...anyone know the actual amount of drop?

I believe the ZSP springs give you a 0.6" drop in comparison to a non ZSP e90.

How bad was the camber after the install?
So the vehicle is lowered 0.7in more in the front, and 0.6in more in the rear?

How is the gap? front and rear gap?

According to BMW the E90 sport suspension is .6" lower than the standard suspension.

Since Eibach says that the 1.2" drop is from non sport height, then I would assume that the drop on the sport suspension car would be about .6".

The only way to tell for sure would be to measure one stock sport suspension car, and then a sport suspension car with the H&R springs installed.

Can Someone with a 330i sport measure from the bottom of the wheel well to the center of the BMW logo in the middle of the rim. (Front and rear) and post the results. Measuring to the center of the hub means that the tire size and inflation will not matter in the measurements.

Then we need someone with the H&R springs to do the same measurements and post the results!

Ok guys, Get on it!

Well... the handling has improved a bit, and yes, the ride does feel a bit more harsh than stock sport.

My opinion, just drop it. Your parents won't notice the difference. If you have sport pkg already, they won't tell the difference since the stock sport is low enough.
