I wonder if some vendors can sell the modified bump stops along when purchasing the lowering springs. That would save people a lot of time.

Looks good. I got the bump stops too to install with my eibachs. Don't think I'm going to shave my guide supports though.

curious to know if this is a decent compromise? will shorter bumpstops improve suspension travel without touching the guide supports?

this is what i was thinking. just want to increase travel without too much hassle and the bump stops are easy to change. havent got them installed yet but once i do i will post what i think.

call me stupid but what positive gains/advantages does it do to your car modifying bump stops =) , does it affect ride quality or longevity of the suspension?

Also does it improve handling even if you just install new bumpstops?

I would also like to know this as I plan on getting some eibachs.

Anybody know if bump stops are different on the e93s?

Interesting that the drop on the e93 is more than the e90/92 with eibachs. Anybody know why?
