Los Angeles lol

it doesnt bounce at all. ride comfort is nearly the same as stock, but handling is better, doesnt feel as floaty.

lowering the m6 is a must imo

Looks good...H&R seems to be a little lower with bigger compromise in ride quality.

I'm putting a set of Eibach springs in my M6 after having H&R for about one year. I'll update with my impressions after installation. I just can't live with the H&R any longer.

hmm another convert!

The ride on Eibachs, as said before, is very close to stock, but a bit stiffer on bumps...not springy at all...

The drop is as low as I can go considering:
I live in Diamond Bar where my home is situated in a hilly area.
With the Vorsteiner lip, can't get too low...

Here are some pics of mine on stock rims:



I would say after a couple of months, the springs have settled a bit, and now I'm on 20's so the wheel gap is less...

I must say my first set of springs were Eibachs and then I had to go lower and put H&R's on but the ride is toooo bumpy and not smooth with these Fu****g H&R's

Turner motorsport site says that the Hartge springs lower the car 1.25in all around the front & back!

while eibach pro kit says that they lower the m6 1in front and .6 rear.


In my opinion i would go with Hartge because the hartge lowers the car the same all around, keeping the bmw geometry....

does this sound right maybe to anyone?

I think by default BMW cars are 'higher' in the front than the rear, I choose Eibach springs for my M6 because I wanted the "raked" look(the back is a bit higher than the front) but didn't want the vehicle slammed to a point where it's a pain in the a** for daily driving.

Eibach PRO-KIT Lowering Specs: Front = 1.0 in / Rear = 0.6 in

Looks great. I'm having mine installed on the 6th.

I had my Eibach Pro springs installed today. The ride height is slightly higher when compared to the H&R, but I have to say the car looks much more uniform and not 'slammed'. The ride... well what else can I say, it is hugely improved. I'm going to run the car in the hills this weekend to determine any handling compromises, but since my M6 has become my daily driver, I will forfeit any possible handling issues.

I am hugely happier with my Eibach compared to my H&Rs. Anyone want a set of H&R springs, I'll give them away for free, you just pay shipping.

I can ship custom-tax free to anywhere stateside I would estimate $30 or so. No more than $50.
