Suspension upgrade

Ok so at 77k and its about time for suspension. B8 are the shocks leaning towards but the real question is eibach. 335xi and I know sportlines not offered, but is anybody using them or is Prokit is the only option I should consider?

Actually there is no 335xi specific Eibach Prokit either. People have been using the RWD version.

Not really interested in coilovers since just my dd. That's why I figured would be ok to use the sportlines since people using the prokit. Wasn't sure if anyone was running them with the b8.

Good point. Not sure if anyone has tried. Some of us who installed the Pro kit have found that rear drop is too much, but obviously "proper amount of drop" is subjective. Good luck and please update if you do decide to try out Sportline. Thx!

I know you're not looking to get coilovers but I just got kw v1 coilovers my car is a DD ride comfort is better than stock in my opinion you actually feel the car absorbing the bumps you do feel it but not in a bad way. I got them for about 400 less than what they usually go for and I have a 100 mail in rebate for anything purchased in July so I saved about 500 bucks

I'm also interested in this apparent deal of the century. I'll buy them tomorrow if I can save $500.

Coilovers are not just for tuned cars lol. Much better for comfort and ride than springs and factory dampeners
