How much are you all paying to get your lowering springs installed?

Any good shops in LA you recommend?

Do you have any pics of yours lowered on H&R. For some reason, there aren't many pics out there.

I would highly recommend the HR springs. The drop is perfect (IMO) and the ride quality does not get compromised.

My previous car was an E class with AirMatic. I was able to hack the air suspension and lowered it to my liking. Loved the drop and ride quality. The HR springs provide a similar experience. I was prepared to reverse the drop and go with full coil-overs if the ride quality suffered.

I would recommend them

Here are pictures of how low E class was

Sorry for the sideways pictures.

All of these great looking black wheels. Why can't BMW offer a black wheel option for the M550?

Lowered on MSS Soorts Fully Adjustable kit. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! The ride is comfortable for normal driving and sporty as heck for spirited driving. The best of both worlds at a third the price of coilovers.
