Looks gorgeous.

Man, I'd have joined you guys. I like eating doughnuts and talking s**t!

Anyway, the important thing: How does she handle now? What kinds of differences do you feel?

Just a heads up the e90 is a non-ZSP suspension. The Eibach Prokit spring drop is significantly noticeable than before the ZSP 161 wheels/non-RFT tires and H&R sway bars mods.

Kudos to Spool and his friend for making time to accomodate my needs, just shows how DC Metro folks are pulling together to make a better community.

And as usual the moral support iatacs19 and kl2dc provided today is very much appreciated. Im very happy with the results gang

anyone local looking for a Spring Installer, we have a mbrs here that does it

Originally I already like my non-ZSP e90 handling since I replaced those RFT with staggered Michelin Pilot Sport All-Seasons, I feel very planted on the road especially at on/off ramps. To add to that handling excitement last year, I've invested on a set of H&R sway bars, w/c was a day and night experience.

The EiBach Pro-Springs mod, aside for being cosmetically pleasing, helped lowered the center of gravity which now improves the transfer of weight during cornering. We've tested this on a very tight 90 degree off ramp at unimaginable speed and the car held its grip and grounds. Im very pleased with the results. Aside from having the sports low-profile feel at the driver's seat, I didnt feel any hardest/roughness in suspension at all. Like kl2dc and swoop mentioned, Eibach Prokit is just like riding on stock springs, and maybe a little better for me.

You are more than welcome to come to any of these mod meets or any meets for that matter.

Thanks for the invite and info.

Do you think a sway bar mod alone is worthwhile? I'm pondering it just because I get a little more body roll on my non-zsp 335 than I like. (I really should have gotten the zsp.)

Sounds like you've got yourself a helluva nice-handling ride. Congrats!

thks, its really one helluva nice-handling ride, but could be better if I had a e90 turbo, but if ever I get one, these 3 mods are a must for me, so I can better appreciate those massive 335i torques


Sway Bars are a definite Plus, I think you should consider it. The e90 sway installs is a bit tricky than most sway bars DIYs I've seen. The entire rear subframe assy has to be drop low enought to fish in the bars thru the axle-wells. I can point out to you which one needs to come out first. Ive also got photos of it during the installs.

john, look into the eibach pro-kit and Koni FSD combo also, it should be an optimal setup for our local area streets...

you're more than welcome to any of our community meets and get togethers anytime..
