Before I pull the trigger on the Bilstein, just want to confirm that the correct part number is 47-264625. Bilstein didn't list the wagon on their site so I chose the GT.

After pouring through the entire thread I decided to go the Eibach E10-20-031-14-22 springs and Bilstein B6 route. I wanted only a moderate lowered stance, nothing too crazy, but was after driving characteristics with better damping at sudden load changes and less body lean in corners. This setup works pretty well for me and I am happy with this setup.

The old struts were in bad shape. As a matter of fact the driver side strut was so weak that it compressed on it's own weight when set upside down on the ground. The rear shocks where slightly better, but not by much. Then again these components had the original 120k miles on them, so it was time for a change either way.

Did the work myself thanks to FaReKl's great video, the only thing that gave me some trouble was the rear camber arms and getting the camber arm bolt back in and aligned. I ended up having to use a strap ratchet set to pull the arm towards the front of the car as the spring was fighting me.

Got the springs from ebay from a German supplier directly as there seems to be a shortage of the E10-20-031-14-22 and -15-22's at US retailers, whereas the B6 set I had no issue sourcing.

H+R coilovers are on and I love the ride. They’re very good at soaking up the small stuff and the car feels well planted when cornering.

I had the Eibach 14-22 springs installed in my 2017 F31 yesterday and I couldn't be happier. It's the perfect amount of drop I was looking for, just enough to minimize the big gap of the stock springs. The ride feels good, a little bit firmer than stock but not harsh in any way. I kept the stock dampers, the car only has 30k kms. The floaty feeling is gone and just feels and looks like I thought a bmw should now.

Here is mine with the Bilstein B14 installed. It is around 1" drop on all 4. After the break in, the ride is firm but not harsh. Liking it so far.
