Megan Lowering Springs

Anybody know if the Megan Lowering Springs are any good on the 750li. Im only going to be using them for the front of the car. I heard good things from them on the F10, but nothing on the F01/F02.

I posted this on the 7post site few days back and got no response... would like to know as well!

The website states a 2" drop in the front, will that not be too aggressive? It will be the same as the H&R Super Sport drop on F01's,
1.4" Drop on F02's

Ebay lists Megan racing springs same for f01/f02?

I like the drop but more worried about the drive quality. H&R springs have such a nice ride quality when installed but the Megan are so inexpensive

They seem to be a pretty big manufacturer dealing with various makes/models... would suspect quality to be the same if not better. They claim no "sagging" , aren't h&r springs notorious for sagging issues over time?

I just had them on my 2006 650i convertible. Loved the ride quality. I found a set of H&R springs and am about to buy them. I loved the quality i had on them. I just find it hard to believe that Megan lowering springs would be better. My cousin is about to get the coilover system for his f10 but thats not for some time.
