I'm interested in lowering too, but H&R had very harsh ride in my previous e90. Can you share how much your ride comfort changed after installation and you kept stock shocks correct? Thank you

Let me know if you have self leveling rear suspension or not, then I'll send you a link for the spring on my website.

PM you.
Labor usually around $200-$300.

It shouldn't void the whole warranty of the vehicle.

You can really buy the HR springs anywhere nowadays, not too hard to find. I bought mine at a local place and they installed it for $750.

In this day and age, local shops gotta compete with the online pricing, so they get you with the installation fees :/ $100-130 hr? Around 3.5hr of work so I thought it was fair.

DO you have less body roll in turns? From my experience springs are #1 remedy for body roll (much better than swaybar or any other parts)

Havent noticed much difference tbh. I'm riding on low profiles so I'm cautious at every turn.
