2018 F80 ZCP Lowering spring choice advice needed

As stated i have a new 2018 ZCP and the wheel gap has got to go. im not new to forums at all and i know ill be told to use the search button BUT, so much of this information is scattered,convoluted and a lot of the springs referenced aren't relevant to a ZCP setup. I want to know what everyone's opinion is on what the best lowering spring for a daily is. i do not want to slam the car. i like the idea of the Eibach at .8 front and .4 rear but again, there is so much confusing info on that topic as well.

I don't mind is the ride is a little stiffer, i just want a nice clean balanced drop.

any recommendations would be appreciated!

I’m running the Macht Schnell Comp springs and I’ve been very happy with them. Ride height is perfect IMO, and the ride is firm but comfortable, at least for me.

Thank you! I appreciate the input. I have also had the MS springs in mind as I have their spacers too. Super quality product. Any pics of the car on those springs?

The photo in my signature shows the car on the MS Comp springs. I will post a few more when I get home.

Here are some more. Sorry the quality isn't so great. I've owned the car for 19 months and I still haven't gotten around to taking decent pictures of it with my SLR. Anyway, I hope this helps.

Interested in this topic as well. Which springs have the mildest drop and close to the stock zcp spring rates?

No spacers. They sit nice and flush with those offsets.
