Thanks man, lol honestly, don't know why. Maybe it will start hitting once they have settled all the way but for now, the ride is perfect and no issues even when compressed.

It's always nice to see it on another car that looks the same. The ride is fine for OEM. I have over 60,000 miles on this set so didn't see a need in changing them. I have a set of 335 Sports in the garage with only 20,000 on them and may switch to those soon. The ones that I have on there now are great for the road, but it can get a little bouncy when you get on a really rough area, but overall I'm very pleased.

No, everything else is stock still with no issues.

Thanks, I think for now, and for where I live this is going to be enough

Same here, I don't really want the slammed look, I can handle another .25" but nothing further. If it drops more, I'll post up some pictures.

Thanks a lot! This one took me a while to get approval from the boss on so it wasn't the first and will not be the last, thanks again!

Looks really good
She is still sitting on OEM regular struts for now. I have a full set of 335 sports with only 20,000 on them. I may throw those on just to see what the difference is. It only take around 3 hours the change it all out. Even with the OEM it's a really nice ride...well unless you get on an extremely bad road then I just drive slow, thank you!

I think it's the perfect height, especially for where I live. As for the exhaust, already have aftermarket just didn't go full cat back, only muffler delete and love it. thanks a lot for the comment!

You will love the springs. I've only had them for a week, but I love the look and the ride. As for 18, I'm sure if you do a search you could find some photos of that setup.

Sorry it took so long, just saw your post lol. The ride is really good, I did switch over to 335 sport struts. The ride is a lot better with the 335 struts. Have had no issues at all with the set up thus far. The car handles like it's on rails, and the ride is very nice, not stiff and not too soft. Maybe one day I'll change over on the struts to yellows, but for now I love it!

Yeah, it had stock base struts. I had a set of 335 sport struts given to my when I bought the wheels with only 20,000 miles on them. Since changing over to them, the ride quality is much better. The ride with the stock struts was not bad at all, but you could really tell when you got on a bumpy road, it would bounce you around a bit. If your not tracking your car (I don't) then it's no problem.

E90 stock is already low enough. Don't see a difference but if you are happy and have money to blow then yea the overall presence of your car looks nice

Considering this one is on 19in wheels instead of the 17s that came on it, it's a big improvement, almost looked like it had a lift on it lol. As for cost, $250 shipped, and I installed everything myself so well worth the money. Thank you for the comment!

I agree with you 100%. I know I said I'd post pictures but I've been lazy and going to post pics once my quads are on. 19's on E90's look great but even better dropped!
