H&R SPORT. I was a little worried about not getting the super sport springs but I think it came out alright, it rides real nice and very important it doesn't rub

OP from what I have seen, the super sport has a more visible drop. Is this right? So my question would be.. how often do you have 4 passengers in your car? What forum members have said there is a little rubbing. I think what you have is a great compromise if you occasionally like to have 3 or 4 people in your car.

Thanks for the comment, from what i've seen the super sport looks lower in the back,everybody that has them is complaining that the back is lower then the front. I have yet to rub and I to live in miami and you know how the streets here are lol,the other answer to your question is yes i got two kids and a wife my kids are not to big but its 4 people lol and we went all around miami sunday and no rubbing.

OP. I'm currently talking with a dealer for a F30. First thing I'm doing after I buy the car will be ordering the same springs you have. 😁

Love the way your car looks. The white is a really nice color, starting to see alot of them. Rims look great on it too, and the drop from the H&R Sports is perfect. What % tint did you get?

Looks sick man! Great choice w/ the rims, tint, and springs

How is the ride on 20s? Does it feel 'thicker'? in terms of acceleration/handling or what?

How do those springs compare to the stock Sport Suspension (704) in terms lor lowering height? I think 704 lowers it by 10mm vs. standard height. How much did you lower it by? Looks like the right height.
