Lowering Springs for E61 M5 Touring

Hi, Newbie here, will be taking delivery of a M5 Touring in Feb, just wondering if the H&R springs for M5 Saloon will fit the Touring, the only one which seems to hv a set of springs for the Touring is ACS , does anyone know if any other tuners also hv springs for Touring?

If ACS has a set of springs available, that means Eibach should be following suit wihtin the year as they usually are the supplier for ACS afaik. That beind said, I find the ACS setup hard to beat. That may be your best option, esp over in HKG as ACS is a well established brand among all the shops there. All that being said, I beleive the springs are different for the two versions jsut due to the different weight and suspension chracteristics but am not positive. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info, I also suspect the Saloon springs won't go into the Touring due to weight issue. H&R is a personal pref cos its best suited to roads over here in HKG IMHO
