Funny that you should ask this now. I called both Eibach and H&R today and they indicated their advertised drop is based off of the base model car with Non-Sport suspension. They also indicated the BMW Sport suspension is roughly a 3/8" - 1/2" drop over base.

Bottom line...subtract half an inch from the advertised drop.

Eibach Pro-kit on Sports Package will be .5" drop
H&R Sport will be .8" drop

^0.8" in the rear right? Because the fronts were way more than 0.8"

On m-sport suspension height (same height as sport suspension):


After H&R sport:

I just lowered my e92 yesterday with HR Sport springs Im almost 100% it was not sport suspension because my last e92 did and the rear was much lower stock than this one. I still have some space between tire and fender, in your picture it looks lower than mine but I'm sure it will settle in a few days. Are you on stock struts? Do you notice a "thumb" or "bump" (very audible from when in the car) when you go over a bump? coming from the front.. Thanks
