A new coilover option [see full F30 coilover list] is now available for the F30 3 Series, from H&R.

The H&R Coil Over Street Performance Suspension (Part number: 28895-1) for the F30 328i and 335i has the following height adjustment range:

Front: -1.5-2.6"
Rear: -1.3-2.3"
MSRP price: $1,680.00
Part number: 28895-1


Here is a description:

The H&R Street Performance Coil Over kit takes the traditional shock/spring package one step further. H&R combines their progressive-rate springs with specially valved shocks and adds height adjusters that let you set the ride height to your own personal tastes. These coil overs are designed for street use with progressive rate springs that start out soft and stiffen as they are compressed. This helps to keep the ride compliant while still giving better handling and balance.

H&R designs each suspension to work as a coil over. This means that the correct amount of travel has been built into each shock. And the shocks are valved specifically for the spring rates to give a tight and controlled ride without being harsh or ultra-stiff. Each H&R coil over is TUV tested and approved and meets ISO quality standards. These are used with the stock strut and shock mounts for a quick and easy install.

Those figures seem like very aggressive drops. What is the drop on the car in pictures from stock height?

This car looked great in person, the white wheels were a great compliment. Really made me wish I'd had some patience and waited for the M-Sport. Good work H&R

With these coils, do I need to use my OEM top hats or w/e? Also since it uses OEM shocks struts and mounts, does it mean that the OEM ones will wear out faster?

A few guys over on the M3 and E90 forums use them. Most people have it set in their mind that KW is the only way to go for Coilovers and it's simply not the case. H&R makes fantastic products but they don't have as much clout with their coilovers on Bimmerpost for some strange reason.

Also, you can beat bang for the buck. They are listed @ $1680 MSRP but we sell them for $1527. If there is enough interest, we could get the cost down substantially with a Group buy on them.

They look great, but do you know if they have sway bars in development, that's what the f30 platform needs ASAP.

This is listed for the H&R Coilovers:

Front: -1.5-2.6"
Rear: -1.3-2.3"

Does that mean that the MINIMUM lowering amount would be 1.5 inches for the front? What if you wanted *less* than 1.5 inches?

Rich? Anyone?

I had the H&R coilover system on my b7 S4. The ride was horrible, very harsh after 3,000 miles. I ended up selling them and picking up KWs and the difference was night and day.

Obviously these could be valved for more comfort than the S4 variant but just wanted to share and give people a heads up.

Yep Bl@ster. That is going to be the highest setting on those coilovers at 1.5 Inches drop front.

so far not one review of a f30 member with these coilovers, im assuming they will be very stiff and harsh due to the reviews others have made in regards h&r coilovers and their their previous cars.

im personally waiting for bilstein shocks to come to the US, they went great with h&r springs.

Plenty of reviews for other bmw models. So far ...'stiff and rough'. Taking it with a grain of salt though.

I 2nd the Bilstein..their distribution center is 15 min away from my house. Not sure if true but their f30 shocks are available in Europe. I think I will give them a call.

edit: Just called nothing for the f30s

yup, and if people can't tolerate to the point of having to switch them out for something else then it must be quite rough. i like rough though, but sounds like itd be unbearable for a daily.

Im waiting for those bilsteins to go for sale already, That or koni shocks which i heard good things about. I believe there are members in europe who have bilsteins on their f30, but we need them here in the states! i refuse to simply put on aftermarket springs and not get upgraded shocks.
