This popular shock/spring package for the E46 xi models will lower the ride height back down to a 'normal' setting, while also improving handling at the same time. The 325xi and 330xi came with raised ride heights that made it obvious they were AWD. This was part marketing and part purpose. But how many owners need the additional ground clearance? If you want to lower your 325xi/330xi, reduce bodyroll, and improve handling this package is second to none. We have installed this package many times on local E46 xi cars without complaints, which says a lot for the comfort of this package on New England roads.
H&R Sport springs lower the ride height by 1.2" in front and 1.0" in the back and stiffens the spring rate. Both combine to lower the car's center of gravity and reduce the amount of bodyroll in corners. The springs are progressive rate so their initial stiffness is actually very compliant and it becomes stiffer as the spring is compressed. This is great for street cars that see bumps and potholes where suspension compliance is key. Overall, they are about 40% stiffer than the stock original springs.
We use Bilstein Sport shocks as the dampers and they feature Bilstein's patented and innovative valving system. With this system, small bumps and impacts are absorbed as they should be. But the shocks stiffen for cornering and other suspension motions. It's the best of both worlds as the shock self-adjusts based on suspension motion. These fit with the stock strut and shock mounts, making for an easy and clean install.
