E90s w/ H&R Springs

Hey guys,

I'm a bit reluctant to install these springs after much research.

I've always modified my suspensions on my cars (H&R Cup on my E46, H&R Springs on my G37, KWv2s on my 335) and I can say the ride quality never deteriorated to the point where I'd have an uneasy feeling when going 60+ and going over a little bump in the road, which is a common review from those with H&Rs.

My particular setup is going to be H&R Spacers 15mm F and 12mm R with whatever springs.

Soooo, if anyone has this setup, I'd love to catch a ride one of these days when the weather clears up so I can try to 'feel' what everyone is saying before installing these over Mustafa's Eibachs.

TiA!

I have the H&R without the spacers and the ride is not bad (Perhaps because I have 18). I must say thet it feels pretty good at high speeds

I think the H&R lower the car just a hair more than the Eibachs. I could be wrong, but when I compared my car to Mustafa’s, it looked a little lower.

I have the same set up as you as far as spacers goes. I have H&Rs and the ride quality is great, to me it is anyways. When the weather gets better, I'm planning on a trip to VA., maybe we can catch up and you can drive my car.... Or if you ever down near Georgia?

Yeah, I wish I did now. Oh well, there is always next time. I'm trying to go up there when the weather is not so crazy and hang out. Maybe when the meets start happening again.

I'll be in Raleigh this weekend but that's about as close as I'm going to get for now. But down to meet up whenever you come visit lovely VA.

DO the H&Rs...I had them with the car and when my buddy Eric took the lease over he demanded I keep them in there. The car is extremely solid at speed and compliant with the springs...do it.
