Careful with the bumpstops. The E36 M3 ones are probably too weak especially for the weight of your car. They're an important part in handling and preventing the ride from "crashing". I got polyurethane ones based on the negative experiences of the e36 ones in the this thread

You live in NYC so you may need ones that are more durable.

Details on the polyurethane b.stops? Will it lower it .5 as well? What model car are these from?

These are aftermarket bump stops. The ones on the left are Polyurethane and the one's on the right were for a sport package. They are a tight fit and will need to be greased up before being put on. And I recommend evening out the inner ring so it's flush all the way through.

OP...I just installed the same Eibach springs on my car a couple of weeks ago (Bilstein B12 Pro Kit). I also installed all new strut mounts, bump stops, and all the other mounting hardware.

Mine definitely doesn't set as low as your does.....but yours was sitting much lower than my was with the stock springs in on.

Did you measure the before and after heights? My car only dropped about 1/8" in the back, and around 7/8" in the front. Honestly, it wouldn't hurt my feelings if it set a little lower...I'm hoping it might settle a little more after a few more weeks of driving.

Here are some before and after pictures of my car.........for some reason, your car sets much lower than any other 335i I've seen on stock springs.

Here is the BEFORE.



Here is the AFTER.

It definitely seems like the OP might have received the wrong rear springs, I think he might have received sportlines instead of the pro kit as said by another poster. I have never seen a pro-kit drop the car that much, only sportlines.

It should have ended up like iqraceworks car pictured above. Car options/weight are not going to make that big of a difference, it would not even be noticeable.

Is there any way to lower the front of my car just a little bit more? I've put about 800 miles on the car since I did the Eibach springs, and the rear is perfect....the front still looks like it's just a little too high. If I could drop it down another 1/2" or so it would be perfect.....the front just looks way too high compared to the rear.

Any ideas? Or do you guys think it looks ok the way it sits now?

Lowering Perches is what you need. I just set mine up. Lowers it .5

Is that normal for the Eibach springs to set a littler higher in the front?

Its more the fender gap to that give that illusion, and even on stock you see the same proportions front vs rear. However, I raised my rear some for the reasons of more similar fender gap proportions and gives it a nice lean as well think.
