E92 335i lowest drop springs only

Is it the eibachs?

On my m3 I had teins and removed the rear spring pad for almost another quarter inch drop with no problems. Has anyone done this with their 335?

While staying with a reputable well known company, H&R Race seem to offer the lowest drop. But, they don't fit awd it seems.

So either the H&R Sport or Eibachs. I know "coilovers" are the way to go, but in the meantime of not wanting to drop $1400+, I'll roll with springs.

I was going to go with springs as well for my e92...but then again, I don't want my car to feel like my integra when I was 18. So I've decided to save the money for some KW's.

Swapping out only the springs will kill your shocks in no time. If you want a nice, low drop, better start saving up for Coilovers.

Lowest drop I found was the Spax lowering springs for the E9X.
I have them fitted and crickey they are low, 45 frt and 30 rear.
Give them a go, great looks but the ride suffers on the terrible UK roads, I am changing to B12 set up this weekend ;-)

I understand it will take a toll on the shocks. The car won't be my daily and when it comes time I'll throw koni yellows as suggested above.

This was my exact approach with my m3 and my stock shocks with 30k on them held for another 10k with no issues at all before selling my car.

I don't and won't track my car, so I just see no point in dropping over a g into coilovers! To each their own!
