Question to those of you lowered on H&R Springs

I know the drop on the H&R Sport Springs is fairly mild, so are any of you guys having your car re-aligned? If not, how does the camber look? Any pictures showing the camber of your lowered car with stock alignment specs?

Thanks!

335i on H&R Sport Springs here. I'll let you know about the camber after I get it aligned next week some time.

I think it might be different for the 328i, as it isn't as low.

I have a 335i with H&R Sports and it seems as if H&R recommends getting an alignment for super sports but does not mention it for sports.

I got an alignment anyway

Hey ric, do you think the stock offset is ok with the sport wheels, or does it need 5mm spacers in the rear... I know, its not performance oriented, but Im not going to track these wheels with run flats haha

I measured. You could probably put 15mm spacers on if you wanted. I still haven't decided if I'm gonna do it, but if I do, it'll be 15mm rears, 10mm for the front.

How do springs affect the suspension when switching to sport comfort eco?

The springs do not affect the different modes. It just lowers the car. Less travel room in the strut combined with stock dampers that are calibrated for the stock height will result in worse ride quality. Again, modes will not be affected.
