Eibach Sportline vs Pro-Kit spring rates and stiffness ?

Hi,

Does anybody know the spring rates of Eibach Sportline (not Pro-Kit) ? I can't seem to find this information anywhere...I am not sure what to choose between Bilstein B12 Pro-Kit (includes Eibach Pro-Kit springs) and Sportline (includes Eibach Sportline springs). I am sure the Pro-Kit is very similar to my M-Sport judging by the spring rates, but I'm not sure how the Sportlines are much stiffer or not ?

Thanks !

You're right abotu the Pro Kit springs, not sure about the Sportline spring rates though. Have you tried contacting Eibach? Give them a call, they have been very helpful/knowledgable whenever I called them.

After a bit more research I found out that the Sportlines have the same spring rates as the Pro-Kit, they just lower the car more:

Keep in mind that Eibach has a different spring kit for the 335 than what you're looking up. The part numbers in your post above are for the 328 and 330. Eibach does not offer a Sportline for the 335.

You are right, thanks. This made my choice easier, I have already ordered the Bilstein B12 Pro-Kit suspension
