Bilstein sport shocks paired with Eibachs

I did searching and didn't find many m3 owners using Bilstein sport shocks (non EDC). I ended up going with Eibachs/Bilstein sports hoping to get OEM plus ride and performance. I'm happy to say that I got exactly what I wanted, very compliant ride and not stiff at all (compared to factory). I'm not sure how Eibach spring rates compare but its very comparable in feeling. My suspension setup will surely be soft for the track but that's ok for me.

Looking at the Bilstein B12 Pro-kit myself.

Is this the same kit you went with or did you buy the pieces separately?

Thanks

I bought eibachs and bilsteins separately. I looked at tire racks and it looks they only sell bilstein HD's and not the sports. You definitely want the sports if your going with lowering springs

I wouldn't say new setup is softer. Its very comparable to stock and would say it feels more linear over small and medium bumps compared to stock. I found stock to be very taut over small bumps but over medium and big bumps there is significant suspension travel when loaded (softer) so it didn't feel very linear to me. New suspension is more predictable (for lack of better word). I much prefer new setup.

I'll see if I can post new pics...but looks exactly same as those with eibachs
