Has anyone lowered their 325i with eibach pro kit? I'm looking at doing this with koni adjustables and also upsizing the sway bars. In using the Eibach's, do I need to buy camber kits? Are there any other items I need to get?

Eibachs are okay, but they do tend to sag quite a bit over time, which is bad because they already sit pretty low and soft. If you're going with them Bilstein Sports will provide a slightly more comfortable ride, the Konis are a bit much for such soft springs. I typically recommend H&R Sports over the Eibachs. They are a bit stiffer and tend to hold up better over time.

If you're going with the Eibachs then looking into sway bars would likely be a good idea, but I still recommend doing just the shocks/springs first and seeing if you need further stiffness. The only other part to replace while you're udner there is the rear shocks mounts. Get the E46 cabrio ones or the Ground Control ones, depending on budget.

Hope that helped.

yes, deffinately get your rear shock mounts replaced; and try to get some with a lifetime warranty as the stock rsm's are only warranted for 2 years. koni's are better shocks all around than the bilsteins, but bilsteins would be fine for a street setup.
