H&R Springs - how much it cost for installation?

Anyone know how many hours required to lower the F30 with H&R springs?

So that will be 3 to 4 hours of work, which is not bad.

Thanks.

We went with the H&R Super Sport springs for our F30 335. The drop is pretty perfect. glad i did them over the sports. We charge $250 for install on most cars for spring install.

We also did some 19in BBS CH on her at the same time

Very nice. What are the specs on those wheels and which tires were fitted? Any issues with rubbing?

BBS CH

19x8.5 +35 front on 225 and 19x9.5 +40 rear with 255s



No rubbing at all. We'll be trying out some other wheels 18x9.5 +35 on 255s in rear later today to see how they fit

GTM do you think a 19x10 w a 38 offset lowered on super sport springs will rub in the rear?

How's the ride/feel compared to stock springs? How would H&R Sport look and feel different than the Super Sports?

You worried at all about not changing the shocks?

BTW - looks great.

I think it rides like it should have from the factory (more like the e90). The sport springs are less slammed than the super sports but ride very well. I love them on my F30.

pretty much impossible for the H&R Sports are designed to work with the stock damper system and the car is not slammed only 0.8" drop on sport line.

That's not a bad price to get the springs installed

That'll be a little over $500 total I'd assume? (with springs)

Does lowering with these springs affect the aim of the Xenon headlamps? Will it automatically adjust to the slightly lower height or will I need to adjust them myself? Thanks!
