Hi, I have a '93 525 that I am considering lowering, does anyone out there have any pics of their lowered Beamer 525 preferibly the E34 body style. Im looking at the Eibach sport spring kits. Thanks a million!!

Is there any specific reason you want eibach springs?
The H&Rs are a good bit firmer, which generally should make them better performers.
A little bit of info, though -
You sound like you want to stay on the cheaper side. You should really get new shocks when you do this, It could also cause a bounce that is unwanted becasue the springs are so firm and theres nothing to control them. They'll "boing" the car back up pretty easily vs. stock. A good stiff sport shock should be used. Unless you don't care about ride, tire wear, performance, etc.
As for as looks go, thought - the Eibachs will drop lower than the H&Rs buy a little bit even though the specs say they are the same drop. Maybe because they are softer? I'm not sure, but that's usually the case.
Funny thing is in either case, your rear end will actually RAISE if your stock suspension is shot. (funny, but true... I was confused as to why it looked higher in the rear).
