Pics please..eibach pro kit and sportlines on e90

Basically narrowed my decision down to eibach springs since they have linear spring rates compared to progressive.

Please post some pics of your ride (hopefully with 19" since thats what ive got) on either the pro kits or the sportlines.

Thank you all for your help

Youll have some pictures tomorrow. I dont have a camera so itll be from a phone... but itll do.

They will however be on stock 18" rims... itll give you something though.

Actually, all Eibach springs are progressive; that is, they get progressively firmer as they compress.

Here's my car with Eibach Pro-Kit, loaded down with about 3/4 tank of gas and a full size style 161 spare in the trunk.

Thats incorrect, H&R are the progressive ones for the e9x, Eibachs are Linear

I was just reading through some threads and came across this - there seems to be virtually no difference between the ride height on these cars, but the sportlines are supposed to be 10-15mm lower...?

here are sportlines installed a month ago, i have looked at allot of pics since and there really doesnt look like much difference in height between pro and sportline. i have 18s i think 19s may take up alittle more of the wheel well. i have the pro dampers, i got a great price from tirerack for the kit with sway bars, i really like the ride and do not have to worry about rubbing under any situation.

wanted to update this thread since I used it to make my purchase:

here are some pics of my car on eibach sport lines that I got installed about 100 miles ago. It's non sport package. Stock shocks at 83K. Car drives and feels fine (a little bit more bumpy and harsh, but that is to be expected) and I think in a week or two it will lower some more. I am very satisfied with the drop. Knock on wood my stock shocks will be good but I am prepared to replace at around 100K (my last car had 140K on stock lowered shocks and the car before that had 150K):
