Help needed, im thinking about lowering my car?

I really want lowering my car but do not have the money for coil overs. I have a 2007 335i with sport package on 19" wheels and use it as a daily driver. I was looking at H&R springs but don't know what one would work for my car, sport, race, or the super sport. Any advise or suggestions would be appreciated. Also what's a average price on getting springs installed?

Thanks,
Alex

You'll be good with the h&r sports. It sits just right.

I would expect about 250 for install. (depends on where you live)

Also it would be prudent to replace your OEM dampers as well since the stock ones will not be good long term and the ride will eventually suffer. try a set of Koni yellow dampers to go along with the H&R sports.

tein s springs are cheap, about $200 online, and people say good stuff about them.
try ebay, and install will be <$300.
Expect $500 just for springs.
