H&R Springs not 100% satisfied

Hey, i am fairly new here

I was wondering, i got some H&R Sports springs installed 2weeks ago on my 06 325xi and the rear actually drop quite a bit... but the front seems like it didn`t move at all... Why would that be ? As it said it was supposed to drop a tiny bit more in the front than the rear

Now my car looks like it has 10 bags of sand in the trunk

Ill have pictures by the week end.

I posted this in the other thread but it's because the xi naturally has more rake than RWD cars so the front is going to sit higher than the rear with H&R sports. Unlike Eibach, which lowers the front more than the rear, the H&R's are an even drop all around. To bring the front down lower, you may want to consider front lowering spring perches from Supreme Power...they will lower just the front an extra .25 - .5 inches.

Will this affect RWD models the same way?
