Installed H&R Sport Springs

I'm pretty satisfied with the results, I used to have the super sports on my F30 but they made the ride horrible. The sports seem like a good compromise given there are very limited options for the f34 xdrive.

Much better at cornering. A lot less body roll. The ride is compromised but not as much as when I had an f30 on the super sports. On factory shocks

Looks great! Where are you at? Snow? I just spent a Michigan winter on my 400Ms with snows, and next week I get my new Apex ec-7s... I was trying to decide on lowering springs or not.

Are you able to align everything with just the springs or do you need to add anything else?

Stock shocks still?

I love the look, just not sure about losing snow clearance!

Hey PJ. I just had the car aligned at a shop, they had no issues doing it. I'm located in San Diego, CA. So no snow here to deal with. I am still on the stock shocks, I will probably upgrade them down the road but for now they're fine, just a little more harsh ride, but the improved turning response and dramatically reduced body roll is worth it to me.

I have the ACSchnitzer springs on stock shocks, no issues driving through snow/clearance here in Ohio...not that i had many chances, this past winter was real mild but i did get out in a few snow storms we did have (i like driving in snow ) No issues snowplowing or getting the wet stuff sticking where it shouldnt due to being lower. Now the stock runflats on the 400m's, thats a different story i will address later. On the summer setup now, so not going to do anything about it soon

Thanks for the post and before and after pictures. Really helps with decision making of which springs to go for.
Car looks great 👍
I will be going for ACS to keep the ride height a bit higher for my needs and will try to replicate the style in which you have taken the photos.
