You're looking for a good drop or handling gain? H&R gives the best drop but it has the worse ride. i have eibach pro on e92 which drops sh1t all on the rear but too much in the front it gives me headache driving the car in london.

After reading this forum and few others ,I've ordered eibach sportline springs they have very good reviews if you after bigger drop than eibach pro-kit. Best option is to get kit with shocks.

Goodyear eagle asymmetric 2, front and rear.
The front end feels very light and lifty at higher speeds.
