Eibach Spring - XDrive

Hey all,

Just looking on Autodoc and seen they have Eibach springs up for a really good price.

Does anyone have any comparison photos between the 2 kits? It seems they are both their 'pro kit' but one lowers by 20/15mm and the other by 35/25mm.

I'm just hoping to remove a bit of the arch gap from the XDrive suspension.

Thanks

This is something I'll be looking at doing too.
25/35 drop seems about right.

There are two Eibach kits listed for your model.

E10-20-031-05-22 for cars up to 1065kg front axle weight

E10-20-031-06-22 for cars up to 1095kg front axle weight.

Both quote lowering of 20mm front and 15mm rear according to Eibach UK.

There is an ActiveHybrid model listed amongst them with 35/25 drop.

Do you know which kit is suitable for a 330D?

Depends on the axle weight of your individual car. Just buy the AC Schnitzer kit like everyone else (nearly).

My F31 dropped by 35/15ish, not sure which kit, just the F31 xDrive kit, I think there was only one available, or at least once you put in the engine too.

Obviously xDrive M Sport is standard SE height, so lowers more than an sDrive M Sport, is that why?

Mine is E10-20-031-16-22

Yours will be different being an F30 as Lorcan says

I emailed Eibach directly to confirm then bought the springs off Autodoc
