Question New springs or what?

I’ve recently replaced all my shock absorbers by new BMW stock ones without replacing the springs but still I want to improve the handling but without throwing my new shock. What do you recommend for me. I have 530-2002

its a litle bumpy, and the shocks is not designed to work in the lower area, (H&R is the spring delivery to billstein kits )

Eibach does give you the right look, no doubt, but with standar shocks, im afraid it can be a litle bumpy.

Unfortunately, if you change to sport springs (Eibach or H&R), your new shocks might blow out on you sooner or later. The stock shocks are not designed or valved to work with sport springs.
