eibach sportlines vs hr springs???

anyone have experience with the two products? dont expect anyone to have experience of both products on their e90s, but maybe perhaps on their/friends e46's??? which one creates better handling, and which one sacrifices less ride comfort? i think im more interested in maintaining my ride comfort, but if the handling in one is REALLY that much better, than i may have to look the other way.

i havent even heard of anyone using the eibach on their e90's. are they available yet. when i think eibach, i always think real sports, maximum stiffness for best performance. maybe im wrong though

I was just reading some articles on Tire Rack's site this morning:

Eibach Pro-Kit vs. H&R Sport Spring Ride & Drive

Find related articles in the Suspension Component Testing section. Having read all that, though, I didn't feel that I learned much beyond what I've picked up reading here on E90Post.

I have Eibach Pro-kit on my e46 and really like them. When I get my e90, I'll be trying to make the same choice as you. Based on my experience with the Eibach's, I would lean that way, but there is another post showing an e90 sport with the H7R's and I like the way the drop looks on it.

If you want stock confort, I'd not recommend H&R. As I mentioned in other thread, the ride with H&R spring is stiffer than stock set up. The ride is more bumpy with H&R.
