I've been trying to figure out which one provides the best ride quality eibach or H&R. The reason I'm asking is because my wife is the primary driver and considering that I'm going to 19" wheels the ride could be pretty bumpy....but I've also read that changing out the run flats to regular tires will also make a huge difference in ride quality.

No my car is AW. I have m-tech bumpers, Performance rear and aero sides, my wheels are 313. I do drive up 400N a lot though, going from buckhead to roswell in the evenings, so if you see me give me a wave!

I had 18" stock wheels on my M3 and now I'm on 19" performance wheels. I can definitely tell a difference in ride quality (335 > M3) but that's probably because the stock M3 suspension was stiffer than the m-sport suspension on the e90.

regarding the difference between RFT and regular performance tires, are you saying the regular tires are better or worse ride quality? I'm guessing better but then again RFT I think has thicker sidewalls, right?

Same here except I am usually driving from Mcfarland towards haynes bridge in the evenings. I am either in a black G35 Coupe on Works or the white E92 M2. They shouldn't be hard to miss with TopSpeed banners all over them haha

Supposedly the runflat tires are much harder and thicker on the inside(they feel like hard wood) than regular tires. Regular tires have a softer feel and therefore have a more comfortable ride. So changing from run flats to regular tires allows for a more comfortable feel and less hard bumps.

its a HUGE difference. When I had my 335, going from the 18" stock wheels w/ RFTs to 19" wheels that were wider (in front and back) with performance tires was a night and day difference. Even with coilovers, it was amazing how hard the RFTs were when I had to put the RFTs back on briefly.

Ian, I am assuming that you meant for the N55? Also, did you receive both of your graphs without any problems?
