Lower with H&R springs

Hi to all community.It needs a little bit more to make the exterior more aggressive.This time i choosed the H&R spring set with 30mm lowering.The difference was so huge with the oem set both on height and in turning.

Enjoy with photos

I have the eibach pro kit and the car sits a little lower. I would have preferred the h&r spring height.

I would think that the m135i springs would fit the m235i but not certain.

You're lucky, you must live in an area with very few or no speed humps, unfortunately I struggled with lowering springs, just too many undercarriage scrapes on too many speed humps which some are quite high, in London where I live, so took them off 😒

H&R have just released springs for the F44 M235i. However, I asked them about the F40 M135i and they said they currently don't support this model. What springs are you using Spyros E81 ?

Anyone know if the springs specifically need to be made for the XDrive system to cope with extra loads etc or could we use the same springs used for a 118i without issue?

Before i place the order i had already ask the H&R what part number of springs can be use to my car (exactly with load kg).Within an email send me the compatible set of springs.
I don't want to make a promotion but from this site you can find your set.https://www.sandtler24.de/#/dfclassi...name=match_and

That's really good that you can choose the lowering height. I'm guessing you can choose between 35mm to 30mm total drop height?

I only had one option with eibach.. 40mm drop for Australian cars.. only one opinion
