Looks great! The height is very close to how I set up my KW HAS to still be usable around town. Looking forward to more.impressions as you get some miles on them.

So both of the 18s and 19s are on the Eibach? I think if someone is looking for something less aggressive then this is def a top choice.

Very nice! Thanks for posting the pics. You mentioned getting them from your employer Eibach dealer, any idea on timing for full commercial availability by chance?

I believe he said they are both with same springs..I didnt realize the 18s were that much shorter overall than the 19s.

Yes, both sets of wheels are pictured on Eibach springs, 1 day apart.

Now that I have put some more miles on the car in all conditions I can say that its difficult to pinpoint how the car is 'better' but it definitely is.

Turn-in feels so sharp, but yet to get geometry checked.
Comfort mode feels perfect now, has taken away some of the floaty feel (not that there was much) but car feel a lot more planted, and firm but without losing any comfort.

P.s my car is on 10mm spacers front and rear.

spring rates are irrelevant as they are progressively wound coils. What would you do with this data?

So I just called Eibach North America to see when their springs will be available for the F82 and was informed it will be a while longer since they are currently working on revising the drop to be a bit lower. I forgot to ask if the published drops of 0.8" and 0.2" were accurate so I don't know exactly how low they want to take it. My understanding is that they are working off the spring that Eibach Germany released and is adjusting it for the U.S. audience. They said it should be available within two months.

I was at Eibach last week and they are still a few months out. So far, the springs on my car, are awesome and are well worth the wait.

The drop already looks great on TMR's car and he hasn't reported any issues. I wonder what the holdup is?

How difficult and/or expensive would it be to just import the European M4 Eibachs to the US?
