Question about suspension E90

Hi there
This is my first post here, my english is a little bit rubbish but I am from Sweden to that's why

I will get my BMW 325 - E90 or I pick it up in end of June.
I have all the Dynamic/Sport kit on it, but I want to lower it...
The wheels are standard 18" from BMW:Front: 18x8 +34 offset with 225/40/18 <> Rear: 18x8.5 +37 offset 255/35/18.

I have looked at H&R suspension in following dimensions 35 and 50mm, I would prefear 50mm if it's fit and work.

So my question is, is the 50mm suspension-kit from H&R going to work?

Please try to help me so I can order the kit!

Thank's in advance

I have allready my E90, with sport suspension. But i'm looking to lower it a bit.
My only alternative for the moment is springs from H&R , because I want to lower him about 35mm, so i'll need to take the -50mm springs ( 35 + 15 (Oem sport suspension)

But i'm a bit afraid for the ride quality, running on 19".
If you want to have a minimum of comfort loose, you need to pick springs of eibach (pro-kit). But for the moment they provide only 30 mm springs and the other ones are 'in preparation'

Don't knwo what to do

does H&R or Eibach make any springs for the E90 that are a bit less than 50mm? or even 35mm? I want a good handling car but I dont want it to be too low as the front body piece is already quite low to the ground.

Any suggestions?

thanks

Yes. Check out the aftermarket suspension sticky thread at the top of this forum (http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=613). 35mm is about 1.38" and you'll see that there are a few options that drop the car 1.2"

So Eibach, H&R, Hartage and KW all make springs for the E90.

Does anyone have suggestions as to which are better? I"ve been reading the Eibach is probably the best ride as the pro-kits are progressive springs, which also a bit easier on the stock shocks. Is this true?

I don't know anything about KW or Hartage springs, so I 'm deciding between Eibach and H&R.

Any suggestions?

thanks

exactly true If you want a better ride and longer lasting OEM shocks, eibach is the better choice. If you want stiffer/better handling go with H&R and match it with stiffer shocks in the future.
