E93 M3 Lowering Springs

Hi All,

I'm looking to lower my E93 M3 a little, and all fingers are pointing to Eibach Pro's. Can anyone chime in on if this is the best route for me to go? Is there another brand that is better? And, where can I get the best price?

I am not looking to do Coil Overs. Sleeve Kit, maybe.
Thanks!

Have you looked at H&R?

I went H&R for my E93 and couldn't be happier. My car not only looks more aggressive, but the handling feels like the car is on rails.

I have also researched H&R. The favorite seems to be pretty split between the 2 choices. I believe H&R gives a lower stance. I am going to be rolling on the following:

19x9.5 22 255/35/19
19x10.5 22 275/35/19

I don't want to deal with rubbing issues, so I don't want to go too low.

Looks like I wll go Eibachs. I need that comfort level, as I live in TheCity. :P

For those looking for a good comparison:

Question now is... Who has the best price on Eibach Springs?

Thanks Guys.

Is the increased negative camber angle a concern for you (after lowering your car)? Have you had any issues with un-even tire wear (like cupping)? I have a set of H&R springs that I have yet to install (since the winter is just winding down here in Ohio).

Nothing but a perfect ride and a perfect stance. Don't hesitate, just get it done.
