Looks good and thank you for posting the pic! Now I don't have to guess how my AW 340i would look lowered.

looks like you have the track package. How do the dampers respond to the spring rates?

I ask, because most of the time if stock struts are retained, the ride is bouncy when lowering springs are installed.

Yes I do have the track package, very well!! they are the stock shocks and they perform excellent, there is absolutely no bounce what so ever, the drive feels great too. I could even say when driving on sport+ it stiffens up even more and handles great.

Looks nice but with such a large drop, its probably riding on the stock bump stops and stock damping is almost fully compressed hence little or no compression stroke left....

Like the drop, looks nice and even without being too low... But yeah, will probably destroy the stock shocks faster.

Thank you. Before I got it all installed it was checked thru BMW dealer and they assured me that I would not have any issues as far as shocks or dampers, But they said if I dont feel comfortable as far as the ride goes I can upgrade the bump stops.

Hmmmn- seems odd that super sport springs -with lower stance than sport springs -work OK with OE bumpstops and yet H&R have started selling shorter bump stops with their sport springs..
