andrew270681: Now that you've had the car lowered for a while, spacers installed, and alignment done...are you still not having any rubbing issues?

I'm planning on lowering my car this month, e92 running same rims and tires as yours. Debating between 12mm rear and 15mm front vs 15mm rear and 18mm front.

shaggag mentioned he was on eibachs as well but rubbing with 12 rear. Wonder if it has to do with him running stock 18s.

I fitted them myself.... Im a little "paranoid" about people touching my car and i also got rediculous labour quotes not to mention the price of springs

I bought the springs from Andrew from redline ( usa) andrew@redline-motorworks.com
He was very helpful and great to deal with.
Cant remember how much i paid but its much cheaper than what you pay here!

I even installed my slip on exhaust just because i dont like anyone touching my car including the dealerships.

P.M me if you need any help or advice. I think i P.M'd you my number feel free to call anytime..

Just got my pro-kit fitted and what can i say. Visually i'm a little disappointed, as it doesn't lower the car that much, but i'll wait a couple of weeks for the car to settle.

handling wish, i think its brought it closer to how the e46 used to handle, better rebound, slightly firmer ride, and less jiggle in the back, although i did have a slight problem with the toe on my left side which i had before the fitting and alignment.
This mod is worth the money, if you like corners.

Give it more than a couple of weeks. It WILL get lower, i measured mine a month later and it was lower.

Looking very good Andrew, how much of a drop did the springs give you?

Def it will settle more after driving a couple hundred miles!

A buddy of mine is dropped on eibach and running 12mm and 15mm spacers and no rubbing issue.

It sounds really good!
That's awesome. Do you have any vids of the exhaust? Also what is the going rate on the exhaust? PM me if you wish.

Cheers

Good Question...

My Mate does tinting, so i let him do what he wants. I know the rear are slightly darker than the front. I think the fronts are 35% and rear are a little darker than that.

The exhaust sounds awesome, I was thinking about this one myself but I couldn't find enough videos of it online so I went for an eisenmann...although, this would have saved me a lot of money!!!

Looks Very Clean!

Now is this the Pro-kit or Sportline.
I have the same wheels on my 2007 e90 and have just ordered the Sportline springs.
Will post pics when I get them on. =)
