To be honest you won't notice. Unless your a pro racer and hitting bends at crazy speeds lol. The springs are actually for the se shocks.

You should be fine on stock shocks. It wont bounce around much, but if you had a 335i with a bit more power, i would upgrade the shocks to handle the power a bit more.

I had my H&R and Koni Dampers around a track a couple times and they perform very well without any other suspension mods or braces.

To be honest for an every day car the springs are all you need as they will make a big improvement anyway.

Is that the right springs for yr car? Both engine and car type need to be correct. H&rs give you drop so something isnt quite right

Yeah pretty sure its a 330i and its all that was listed supposed to be a 50/25mm drop although i expected less due to being on m sport springs anyway. Hoping they will settle a little lower as they were fitted 3 days ago
