Just installed H&R Sports and lowering perches

Couple days ago I finally installed some H&R Sport springs and SP lowering perches. I know it will lower a bit more when the springs settle. Not sure if it's just me but I thought the front would be lower than it sits right now. Also the drivers side is a bit higher than the passenger side. Before I had the lowering perches on OEM sport springs and the front was only about half an inch higher than with the H&R Sports. Could it be because the springs I bought are a different spring rate? Maybe for a 335i?

Yes, I should have noted that I am very happy with the overall way it looks with the springs but I was just thinking that with the lowering perches it would be lower than it is in the front. Maybe when all the springs settle, it will drop some more.. Now I just have to find a place here in Sac to roll my rear fenders as it rubs at times.

i agree, you should just wait a few days and then see how the ride height looks, and btw if you ever come down to so cal you can have LTBMW roll your fenders for you, i've heard nothing but great things about them, LTBMW ftw!!!!

Yea If I was anywhere near so cal I would definitely have LTBMW do it. I'm hoping to have it done locally or else I may have to take a trip to the bay area and have Sonics do it. I heard good things about them also.

I have H&R sport springs on my car as well and yes the passenger side sits lower than the driver side but I think thats just because once you sit in the driver seat, the car levels out? The front is plenty low already for me since I DD my car and the rear will settle the most. Especially after having a few people in your back seat. I'm surprised you don't have your fenders rolled already but it could be due to the fact you're not running spacers. Car looks great tho!

I actually have 15mm spacers in the back and 12mm in the front. These Reps have awful offsets.

It makes sense, but the springs are not marked driver or passenger so I'm assuming that it is something in the suspension besides the springs that makes the driver side lower than the passenger...
