Question H&R Springs on 325ci???

I am planning to just change the spring of the suspension. What is your recommendation between the H&R Sports or Race? The Sports claim on F .75" and R .25" drop whereas the Race claim 1.1" and .9" drop. I want to go with the Race version but H&R suggest performance aftermarket shocks or struts is highly recommended in this application. Is this true? Has anyone have any experience with these springs?

Yup, I've heard similarly. If you're going to drop the stance of the car via the springs, your stock shocks won't provide the correct support (they'll be "pre-compressed" more than they normally should, so to speak). If you want the lowered springs, plan to purchase lowered shocks.
