H&R springs sport vs super sport

hey guys so im dropping my car this week but i am torn between what springs to buy, I was wondering if i would need to roll fenders with a 2 inch drop(on the super sports) and i am worried that the sports arent enough of a drop.
I would like to see some pics of e92's with both sports and super sports

I believe super sport is the same as race spring. The milder drop is the sport springs.

No. Just take your inclines (like driveways, parking lot entrances, etc) more carefully, look out for potholes, and you'll be fine.

I'm just saying that race springs I think is the 'new name' that H&R is calling the super sport. I would prefer a sport springs and a spacer. That will make your wheels look more flush with the fenders but not agressively dropped.

If you're not doing lowering perches, you'll find the sport springs to be sort of dull.

TBH though, I'm nearly 2" down from stock (before and after measurements) and you really have to learn to alter your driving style if you daily it. I personally think its a bit much of a drop to be dailying on.

By daily, I don't drive 2 miles to work and say "YEAH I DAILY MY CAR" no i drive 60 miles / day and in urban chicago, so the roads suck, so from personal experience, be careful going so low.
