How are the KW coilovers performing for you? I am very close to pulling the trigger on a set. Any feedback is much appreciated.

I love them. I have them adjusted a little on the comfort side so I don't have a harsh ride at all. In fact I would say it's about like the factory ride. No squeaking or rattling when I'm driving. Definitely worth the money.

Perfect. That is what I was hoping to hear. Thank you for the reply.

BMW 520d G30

Have just fitted Eibach Pro Springs on a 520d and was expecting a 30mm drop all round. Rear looks ok, but front has only dropped by 15mm. Is this to be expected? What is the remedy?

Let the springs settle. It will drop some more, but maybe 5-10mm.

Thank you 12BMW535xi.

How long do they normally take to settle? It has been almost 4 weeks and 1,000 miles since they were fitted. Right now, there is a 1 finger gap at the rear wheels but 2 finger gap at the front.

My Dinan springs took about 2-3 weeks to fully settle... 1.5 finger gap front and rear.

I read somewhere that the 30mm drop would be for non M-Sport cars. As the M-Sport cars are already 15mm lower than standard cars, the Eibach just gives an additional 15mm.
