I'm glad to hear this is a great setup. I actually have my set and just waiting to have them installed. I also ordered new spring pads, mounts etc. Additionally, I also ordered the Dinan comfort bushing kit, which replaces the factory bump stop bushings.
I don't think a lot of people realize that when we lower our M5's on aftermarket springs it kills the struts, especially if your over 50k miles. A lot of the feedback about the H&R springs feeling hash, is because the OEM struts are on their way out or done.
Before I bought my M5 I test drove one in CT that was dropped on H&R springs with a Corsa exhaust and it had 30k miles on it and the ride was amazing. So I was confused as to why my lowered car felt like crap on the same springs. But alas it was the struts.
In my opinion, be prepared to buy new struts if you are over 50k miles and want to drop your car, especially if you live in a place with horrible roads like the Tri state.
I plan to post my review with parts and pictures soon.
In my opinion the H&R springs provide the perfect drop, so I don't need the Bilstein coil-overs, the EDC plug ins will be fine for me.
I'm also going to instal the Dinan front and rear anti-roll kit in the new year, but am waiting so I can feel the difference in stages.
