Wanted: H&R Sport Lowering Springs

just wondering if anyone had a set of these new or used with a few miles on them. I was looking for the pro kit but it didn't lower the car enough, the sportline kit lowers it to much in the front but perfect on the back so im going with the H&R Sport kit, only problem is it costs 250 quid

Anyone know where to get ti cheaper?

The ads for springs for a 1 series, but they share the same product codes as those for a 3 series.

Ingrate!
Don't come back complaining after you hit a bump, and your rear tyres split your splitters after they fall off

No probs Will, they'll suit your car really well.

Roads are more suited to 6 pots anyway.

Im not a fast driver anyway so i drive carefully as i had 2 family members killed in car crashs. Im more after looks tbh. I think the 45 on the front is to low myself. Im looking for something 40/35 or 35/35

But guess i gotta dream on.

You are looking for H&R Race then not Sports

Good job Will bought them first, otherwise you'd have been disappointed

Yea suppose it is, wouldnt have looked bad.

You have the race springs correct?

You posted a pic of 3 E91's together?

What are they lowered front and back?

Cheers

Mines already on M Sport suspension so deduct 15mm from SE. I'd recommend getting some M Sport shocks. SE ones won't last long wiht a big drop plus they are softer damped.

H&R Sports front -35mm, rear -20mm (based on SE)

In reality my front dropped 20mm and rear 5mm. Doesn't seem a lot but look at Matts car (Silver E91) to the left of mine on stock M Sport. The E92 to the right is also stock M Sport. Mine sits lower than both by some noticeable difference. More so when seen. Note I also have spacers as well in these pics.

I measured my archs last night, i know i should have done from the middle of roundel but the arch gap on the back is about 55 and 60 on the front. So im really not sure what springs to go for. I dont want to go to low to ruin dampers. Ive seen the spex kit which lowers it 35-40mm all round, im thinking this might be the best? Just not sure comfort wise lol.

Pics of rear of car, youd swear there was 4x4 springs in it lol



tbh i really need coilovers but no money
