cannot make a decision on springs

I was planning to go with HnR springs for my 325 non SP with 18 inch rims, because I read lots ppl in this forum had HnR. However, the guy from the tuning shop told me HnR was too soft. He says if HnR drops 1.2, after installed a few months it becomes 1.4....coz it is too soft. He told me to buy eibach which was more expensive. I don't know how to make a choice now. Is that true? What's ur choice?

False! If anything, the H&R's are more firm (which equals less sag) then the Eibachs.

Both are good, cant go wrong with either!

HRC is probably right on this. Both are good products, I'd go with whichever is cheaper probably. Also try ebay for Eibachs, if i recall, I saw a good price on there once.

i agree, both are good products. but after seeing how h&r sports drop the e90 in person, i'm going with those.
