320D M Sport Xdrive Springs

Im looking to lower my car since its xdrive and feels like I'm handling a boat. I have found many springs for my car but I wanna know which ones are the best for the money.

ACS £291 : http://shop.rossiters.co.uk/suspensi...rom-4387-p.asp

Eibach Pro Kit £180 : https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/232175663537

H&R £198 : https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/302343508276

Apex £121 : https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/231083177628

Out of all the ones, which springs would you guys recommend?

I have Eibach on my 330Xd and they are a definite improvement over the stock springs. ACS will lower slightly further than the Eibachs and you get the ACS warranty.

H&R are the lowest but are said to compromise on ride comfort. Haven't heard of Apex or seen any write-ups on those.

Thanks for the suggestion guys,

I'm gonna get the Eibach Pro Kit as i cant justify the extra £100 for the acs springs. Does the eibach springs have the reverse rake issue?

I have ACS, but have never tried the others, so can not compare.

But, if it helps, i analysed the springs for ages before I got them. Have absolutely no regrets, the just improve things to make the car handle that bit better.

Get them...you wonít regret!

Yes mate they do - mine definitely looks lower at the back. The ACS are less pronounced in this respect if that makes a difference for you.

OP - do you have an F30 or F31?

The springs are different on each and the F30s on Eibachs definitely have a bit of reverse rake. In either case, the ACS are around 10mm lower I believe.
