ok...i've already orderd struts and i would like to get lowering springs to go along with them. I've found the H&R Performance lowering springs and the Eibach Pro-kit lowering springs, both for $240. Anyone know if I could find either set for a better price or tell me which one is better?

HR springs from Seambmw.com for 225. or go to Ireland Engineering website( www.bmw2002.com) and get IE kit for 275$(best springs ever), or get HR springs for 225 from them.

good choice on the IE springs, however they are 'race' springs and will probably need better damping than what the bilsteins can offer if you plan to auto-x or track the car occasionally.

I think that H&R are quite good , in my previous e30 i had them .

But maybe you should take a look for some weitec suspensions which are maybe not so popular but have also good or even sometimes better parameters

I've got now weitec 60/40 (TX-series) , lowered car looks fine with such suspension and drives in my opinion better than previous (H&R) BUT IT's ONLY MY OPINION .

You should visit www.weitec.de becouse in Europe this suspension-kit is very often use in e30 even in sport competitions .
