I fitted some Eibach springs to my E64 645ci, and after approx 1000 miles I’m not happy with the stance of my car.
I really wanted them to be lower, in fact I have seen these before on exactly the same model as mine either sitting like mine or lower, they don’t appear to be consistent.

If I changed to H&R, would I sit lower than Eibachs, and do any E64 owners have lowering springs other than Eibachs they can show me fitted and their stance please

That looks about right for Eibach springs, mine had that stance when I had them on before coilovers.

Honestly looks good. If you want any lower than that, you will need coilovers I'm afraid.

Get some spacers and that will look great. 15mm at the back and 10mm at the front.

Did you measure ground to bottom of fender before and after installation so that you can tell exactly how much the car was lowered? As I recall the range that lowering springs lower this car is only 1-1.5 inches (per either Eibach or H&R's website, I don't remember which it's been awhile since I did this mod). My 2008 650i came down exactly 1.5 inches all 4 corners with the H&R springs...it did take a few hundred miles of HARD (not easy) driving to get them all to fully settle. I doubt that there is much difference between the two brands. o.p. you have a nice looking car

This is what has held me back lowering my 6 too. I know I need to get coils for my desired ride height so didn***8217;t want to waste money on springs
