Height variation in H&R sport springs

Does it seem like there are a lot of different results in the height of cars on H&R sports? My last 335i had an Eibach pro kit and it looked just like every other pro kit lowered e90. I thought the front needed to be a hair lower, so this time I went with H&R sport, knowing the whole drop was more than what the pro kit provided. I'd done my research, and it did seem like a few cars were lowered more than others, but for the most part I liked what I saw. I've also driven an e90 on H&R sports. I had mine installed and unfortunately the car wasn't done until I had flown out to UK for the semester, but my dad sent me a few pics when he picked the car up from the shop. Wowza it's low! It looks good in the front and I'll know for sure how I feel about the back when I see better pics or see it in person but it's absolutely, MUCH lower than a lot of other H&R sport cars I've seen. I'm certain I got the sport springs and not the race, I double checked with the part numbers on the springs. Sport springs are tucking on all 4 corners. What gives? Here's how it sits now. Btw I put my 18" style 32s on so it wouldn't rub and ended up loving how they look on it. I think rear spacers are in order but I like the look.

Looks good. I sold my Style 32s after deciding they didn't look good enough on the e90, but i may have been wrong! Oops!

Worn strut mounts and spring pads can lower your car almost a half inch, esp in front. If you did not replace them when you installed your springs/shocks, that could be reason for low stance.

Thank you! I saw them on one other e90 and wasn't a fan, but with this finish and the suspension I like them.

Interesting to know! I'll have to look at the paper from the shop, I told them to leave them unless they needed replaced. I trust their judgement, but this is a good explaination for the height differences. Have you noticed that H&R seems to be a bit inconsistent though?

Wish I could tell you! It took me nearly a year to find them, but I ended up getting them new in the boxes on craigslist from Austin Tx.

They're E46 style 32.

Pretty easy to obtain, well in the UK they are

The E38 version (7 series) have a deeper dish on the rears.
