Eibach Pro kit pictures E92

Hello there,

Could you people please post pics of Eibach pro kit set on E92.
70% sure on the Eibach kit but am afraid it's not low enough for my taste so perhaps beter to get a KW V1 set.

Thanks in advance.

Looking really nice Martin! No wonder many of our customers pick the Eibach Prokit.

Just installed mine tonight on an E90. Will be posting some pics soon. They look great, and ride very close to stock ZSP suspension with less body roll.

That's a really nice drop, very similar to the H&R Sport Springs.

Thanks a lot guys, sure looks fine to me, I was afraid the front would be to high but looks fine. I had Bildstein / Sportsline on my E46 and was great, no sportsline for E92 yet.

Not much different from OEM.

Since there is a shorter suspension travel, big bumps are felt a little bit harder. But it handles great, and looks even better.

I cannot comment on shock durability with Eibachs since I had mine installed just 4000kms ago.

Anyhow, it would definitely be better with Koni Sports (or FSDs) and Michelin PS2 rubber. But that is also valid for the stock springs!

It's exactly what you would think with less cushion...with an already somewhat "soft" ride for a stock sport suspension...there is less travel, so it picks up road noise as well as bumps a lot more audibly as well as physically..but it is, by no means uncomfortable, considering the sport suspensions I'm used to on my other vehicles and other lowered cars I've driven. I've been told the Koni FSDs, coupled with the Eibach's, actually feel as comfortable, if not more comfy, than stock but is progressively aggressive when pushed. Which sounds attractive to me considering how far I drive to and from work everyday in the crapiest highways in Los Angeles.

But, I do recommend the Eibach's for a subtle drop that really improves looks and inspires more confidence in the sportiness of the ride. And, it is not bouncy, like all the internet and magazine racers are reporting, as I Road Race and track my cars frequently. I believe it's actually a good compromise...although, we all know nothing is as good as a tuned spring and damper package..coils, etc.

+1 Great explination.
I'm really impressed with how these shock look and feel on my E90. The OEM ZSP feel was retained. If anything it feels more flat, controlled, and less bouncy because you've decreased suspension travel a bit on the stock shocks, and dampers. This might be how the M-Sport suspension feels that's offered in Europe as an option, don't know?? I did however notice a little little increase in road feel and a just a little more noise in the cabin, but by no means obtrusive. The car feels more confident, comfortable, and the look is A+, not too low, not too high. Parking next to a stock car with ZSP, you'll notice the drop. For my driving to and from work, and no tracking, this was good option for me. I would however consider FK coilovers in the future.

I would love to pair these with the M-sport Damper kit Mr. 5 installed.

Pics of my car after install:

Rugs, may I ask if you have the std shocks or sports shocks to go with the Eibach? How is the ride? I also have the E93 but with std suspension.

to be honest, i actually just wanna lower my front about an inch or so. my rear looks fine with me, but a half inch drop there would also look nice.

if you guys are saying that these eibach springs are still comfortable with zsp shocks i might as well try it out. i dunno yet

Nope,

Its bouncy and boingy and jittery and gnarly and nuggety etc etc.

Your set up is way superior I think !

will eibach springs settle?

I just installed the pro kit, but it does not look low at all, it looks pretty much the same, but it does handle better, do i need to give them time to break in?
here's some B4 and after pics
