H&R here with 20x9 F 20x10.5 R

It's low but looks right, IMO, with no wheel gap.

Rides well. You will experience a difference, as you can imagine, over bridge transitions or uneven pavement but it's to be expected when you go this route.

Initially wanted to go Swift but they weren't specifically engineered for the e93 only the e90/e92.

Actually purchased them and returned them after speaking to the guys at Swift.

Would have probably gone with Dinan if the drop was more significant since I have all the Dinan bolt on's.

Either way, happy with the H&R.

Any particular reason why you went with H&R and not eibach's ?

Coin toss really but I did like the additional (yet minimal) drop of the H&R. Had both sets on previous cars so I knew I couldn't go wrong either way.

Reviving as I didn’t want to get flamed for starting a new thread.. my question is the vert e93 stock sits lower in the rear than the front and it drives me mad. I’ve seen some verts in my city lowered very low and the rear looks lower than the front too , no idea what they used coils or springs but still the front sits a bit higher. What springs have the front lower than the rear especially when the top is down and sitting in the trunk adding weight.. my research has lead me to believe the hr race springs might be the ones or street? Eibachs from pics look like th front has more gap than the rear.

From EAS the race springs are for the sedan and coupe. the sport springs have a e93 m3 option. anyne have hr race with a vert. do they take into account the massive weight of the roof when down sitting in the rear. i cant see how the springs are the same in a coupe and vert.

I'm glad I came across this thread! was hoping someone could give me advice. I don't intend to "lower" the vert. I actually appreciate its ride height and plan to keep it close to stock/oem as possible. What shocks does everyone recommend for the vert? I do not track it, it's my Daily and I enjoy spirited driving from time to time.

Thanks!!

Sorry to bump again but not really getting the answer yet. I’m about to buy hnr sport springs for the e93 as they are the only company that has e93 specific springs which I imagine have stiffer rear spring rates for the extra weight. What I’m asking is and it’s not clear pictures of a vert with the sport springs with stock 220m wheels or any rims. Perhaps the silver vert above is but he doesn’t state if there the e93 specific sport springs or hnr race. Car looks low like it’s the race just like clarification. Cheers

I did a bunch of research, and just put the Eibach pro kit on my '12 E93 M3 a couple of weeks ago.. They're perfect - not too low as to look "slammed" but sits just right now, and rides just as smooth as stock. I'm very impressed so far. I have a set of spacers coming in tomorrow - 12.5mm rear, 15mm front.. I will take some pics once I install the spacers and post them here so you can see how the setup looks. Once I'm happy with the spacer setup, I plan to take it in for a proper alignment.
