H&R Springs

The most popular in H&R's line-up, the Sport Springs will lower your M3 for a lower center of gravity, improved handling and a more aggressive appearance. Sport Springs feature more control than that of the OEM springs, but are still comfortable enough for daily use. Sport springs are an excellent choice for street and occasional track use.

H&R Sport Springs have the handling characteristics and aggressive appearance that you've been looking for, without the harsh ride of less-advanced spring systems. The Sport Springs feature more control and are engineered for the street, making them comfortable and fun to drive. H&R Sport Springs are crafted from from a special 54SiCr6 spring steel to ensure quality and performance.

Features:
- Lowers 1.0" Front/Rear (confirmed install)
- Moderate drop and superb ride quality
- ISO 9001 Certified, TÜV Approved
- Crafted from special 54SiCr6 spring steel that provides the spring with unparalleled tensile strength and resiliency
- Lighter and more durable than other automotive coil springs

Overall impressions

Comfortable feel on the street and improved handling in Sport or Comfort modes. This is a great way to keep the factory feel and characteristics, while getting rid of that ugly wheel gap.

Additional items installed

Front: Macht Schnell - Competition Wheel Spacer Kit - 5mm
Rear: Macht Schnell - Competition Wheel Spacer Kit - 5mm

Springs are about a 2 hour job for most shops. Cost will depend on their labor rate.

H&R has historically been a bit more stiffer than other brands, but not overly rough. IF looking to retain a feel similar to OEM feel look into the Macht Schnell Competition Springs.

So around $300 is a fair price?

Macht Schnell 12MM F/R
H&R sport Springs
I wanted to go with 15MM but it flushes pretty good.










Here is what it looks like right after my springs are installed.
