What'cha gonna do widdit?
What shocks? What tires and wheels?
If you want a very streetable car, I like the ST springs. They ARE soft, but stiffer than stock. You may want to shim them up a little bit if you like a stockish ride height.
H&R I know nothing about. Heard good things...
and if you want to go to the track, it's time to go to Bil Sports, coilovers, and something unidentifiable from Ireland....
And put an oil cooler on it!
Oh- dark blue, too...
1.75" drop, stiff but not too stiff.
I think they're perfect. Comfortable ride (daily driver), softer at soaking up bumps than the stock springs were, and the handling is first rate. My tii has Bilstein HD's and 185/70-13 tires on 13X6 minilites. I couldn't be happier.
What tires are you using? I've 13x6 minilites with 205/60 Comp TAs that need replacing thinking of going to 185/70.
Lee is right, they are soft, but they're just about right for a road driven car. Stiffer than stock, and if used with a good shock, you'll love it. Mine are used with Koni SPorts, and the combo is very nice. I just ordered a set of ST's for my 633 as well. I have H&R's for my 323i. I'm not that picky.
