Question Eibach Prokit V Sportsline?

Hi

What would be the best option for lowering a E90 320d SE on standard suspension with 19" staggered wheels...

Eibach Sportsline which lowers 45mm on front and 35mm on the rear

or

Eibach Pro kit which lowers 30mm on front and 25mm on the rear

Anyone got any pics of any of these set ups?

all views welcome!!

thanks

You've got your figures right there!!

45mm is a lot IMO (from non m-sport height) about 30mm from m-sport.

Pro kit seems a more sensible option, depends how low you want to go...

Never seen an SE on 19" with standard non sport suspension. Looks ''Jacked'' does it?!

It shouldn't look any different, clearance wise, to an SE on 16" wheels as the tyre diameter will be the same as on 19", so arch clearance will be the same.

In fact the wheel rim will be closer to the arches with a 19" so it will 'look' lower than the 16".

I also have the sportline springs, Love them, and they are comfortable because they are linear unlike the H&R's

Anyone know how much the Eibach pro kit drops the M Sport suspension by? I'm guessing the figures they quote (30mm front and 25 mm rear) apply to non sport suspension.
