Do you feel like the springs are super small? I have a lot of experience with springs and these are the smallest springs I've ever seen. Mine are the Sport

Yes they look small but I'm sure they're fine? Do you think they're too small to function?

You will not notice these symptoms as much on a 328i because of the lighter engine but it will sit higher in the front.

The importance of matching dampers with springs is so vital to getting the most out of your suspension. Unfortunately there is no perfect solution for the F30 just yet. I have tried the H&R Sports, KW V2, and CKS coilovers on my 335i. Yes, I am very critical of suspension mods.
looking through some old posts, but the bilstein b8 shocks are out now. you consider running those shocks with the h&r sport springs?

He should, because the problem is the OEM poorly dampened 335i sport shocks, not the H&R's. H&R's only serve to highlight the weak suspension components.

I ordered and have a appointment for next friday to have sport springs installs on my 335xi....i kpet going back and forth but with no shock options at this point I said to hell with it and went for it. I'll let you know my opinion once they are on...they are also putting my winters' on which are blizzacks with the stock 403m wheels....also going to put spacers to make the stance right.
