Question Anyone got the H&R 'Cup Suspension Kit'???

Looking for feedback on the above kit for E92 335i's and if you have pictures please post them up.

http://www.europerformance.co.uk/pag...?product=76007

I was originally contemplating just fitting lowereing springs in the meantime as my car desperatly needs a drop but I often go out for a 'spirited' drive and mismatched springs/dampers could be a bit risky on some of the roads i frequent so now looking at complete kits.

Open to suggestions



TIA
G

My 2p -

Almost all the reviews on this forum for the H&R springs say they're an incredibly hard ride, and it's a logical assumption that the Cup kit uses the same springs.

Have you looked at the KW kit or the Bilstein B12 instead?

Depends what you'r prepared to pay. I've just fitted these:

Not cheap, but excellent handling with super-smooth ride.

I suppose I can broaden my question to include some other kits.

KW Suspension Kit 538.30 - http://www.europerformance.co.uk/pag...product=252459
Bilstein B12 Pro-Kit 692.55 - http://www.europerformance.co.uk/pag...product=357772
H&R Cup Kit 534.06 - http://www.europerformance.co.uk/pag...?product=76007

Not really interested in Adjustables/Coilovers at this time. All I want for now is to get a relatively decent kit to drop the car and improve on my current M-Sports.

As i said originally pictures would be helpful so I can see what sort of drop to expect as I'm starting to get irritated by the comedy arch gaps I'm currently sporting

There's loads of pics around of cars lowered on the H&Rs and on Eibachs - I've never seen or heard of anyone using the KW kit, but their coilovers get nothing but praise.

Cheers

Been trawling through the site reasearching various mods but I'm offshore at the moment and it becomes tiresome waiting an age for anything to load up so just hoping to get some nice clear shots like the above in one place. Probably should've stated that at the start

I'm thinking about

H&R Cup
http://www.europerformance.co.uk/pag...?product=76007

or

Koni Strt Suspension 387.60, as well
http://www.europerformance.co.uk/pag...roduct=2578735

Thing is there are Touring Cup and Sport Cup, which one is it?

Touring = less low, better ride
Sport = lower and firmer of course.

Those look like ideal drops for the look I want to achieve!

Much cheaper than coil overs and much better ride than just installing springs! PLUS I could probably fit these myself as they are a direct swap rather than having a shop remove the stock shocks and install springs!
Hmmm I may go this way...

BUT do you think us Londoners can get over speed bumps being this low?

Do you mind if I ask where you got them from and how much?

I haven't found many stockists of the Ohlins and those I have, they are about 2000.
