Eibach Springs for the M5

I'm ready for a drop... I was going to do the full Dinan stage 2 suspension but can't seem to convince myself that its a low enough drop. So im doing the stage 2 minus their springs and go with another company that... now im leaning towards Eibachs because they are lower than the Dinan's springs but not too low like the RD and H&R. I cant seem to find any pics of an M5 with Eibachs... anyone know of any? Thanks in advance!

I went with Eibach b/c I used them on my 645Ci and the ride was good. The ride in the M5 just as comfortable as OEM springs.

rxhealer... did you paint your brake calipers red, or did you upgrade the calipers?

Bernie:

You can also look at all AC Schnitzer brochures or online for the look as they use Eibach springs as a general rule. They advertise a similair drop of 1.2 up front and .6 in the back (HR is 1.2 and .75), HR is always lower then Eibach from my past experience though.
