H&R Premium Street performance coilovers

Calling all members on H&R coilovers.

I'm really contemplating between the Kw's and the H&r's and I know the key differences very well. Just calling on peoples experiences with them. I've seen tons of reviews and pictures of Kw's but very few on H&r coilovers.

So please share pics, opinions on H&R coilovers if you are running them.

Please share ... and feel free to post pics.

I am in the same boat, contemplating KW and H&R. Also anyone who has H&R, how does it hold up in the winter in terms of salt/rust (if it gets affected by salt etc..)

The H&R's

What I like:

- Ride improved yet stiffer. Meaning its a firmer ride, but it doesn't feel jarring like the stock shocks/eibach springs felt.

- Price, $1347 shipped to my door.

- at lowest setting, aggressive drop for an xi, rears flush no gap at all, front less then a finger gap, i'd say half a finger width.

Regarding BIMMERSPORT, I give them two thumbs up everytime I use them. The team is knowledgeable, accommodating, and doesn't upcharge on services.

To install the coilovers was $250. Other shops quoted me $650-$800 for the same job!

I don't think I would go anywhere else, they hit on all points for me. Even the customer lounge is a nice place to hang out and wait.

I can't remember the name of the guy working on my car, but he took extra steps at the end of a long day to make sure I was happy with the result. Very much appreciated.

I'll post pics this week.

Just out of curiosity what coil-overs are you running the premiums or the regular street performance?

Also is there more room for the front to go lower to close out the gaps? And also I'm in for some pictures to see how your car sits.

Thanks your input...

I can't close the gap anymore, thats at it's lowest point as I stated above. These are the street, non dampening adjustable.
