These are Hankook v12...265/30 fronts and 285/30 rears.
If you plan on going with this exact set-up, i would advise going wider than 285 in the rear.

Alright man. You better be right on this one. Im totally trusting you on this. Worst case, i will just install the stock springs back.
But i think i will be ok. Im rocking my stock 19s at the moment, just to see how the ride is before and after lowering w/ 19s THEN moving to lowered with the 20s.
By the way, i dont need to put those bumpstop things do I? I saw that you said you have them, but i dont know whats their purpose or whether or not i need them???

You probably don't need the bumpstops. I did a bunch of research when I bought them, most of which has now escaped me. I think basically, it adds back some additional suspension travel (~9mm?) back to keep you from bottoming out on the bumpstops. It doesn't do anything to make the ride otherwise any more supple or anything like that. It was only $27 shipped from pelicanparts.com so I figured why not though. I'm going to try and go out now to take a quick pic now to show you how the drop looks now that it's settled (charging camera battery). Sorry, meant to do this sooner. Anyways, I'm much happier with it. I suspect you'll love the springs w/ the 19's, then need some getting used to things w/ the 20's. Still, worth it, and like you said, can be undone if you are unhappy.

I took his advice and got 295/25/20's on my e93 and still have some room (with same exact setup). Would get 305's if could do over.

Eibachs are installed! Took the car on 6hr/420mile road trip right after the install...
I think the on the highway, on EDC-Comfort, the car rides smoother. I'm riding on Michelin Pilot Sport All Seasons at the moment. OEM 19s.
Pics to follow...
