06 May 2012 BMW 335i F30 Lowering Springs
If you have been a follower of ours for awhile, then you already know that we are big fans of lowering cars. Most often, lowering a vehicle from it’s stock suspension height will increase its handling performance, but it also adds a look that always makes the car more aesthetically pleasing. For this 3 series, next thing on the list of modifications is installing these 2012 BMW 335i F30 Lowering Springs. The route to a lower vehicle with better handling was made simple with the customer’s choice of H&R lowering springs.
Installation is pretty straight forward: old springs come out and new ones go in. Having a professional grade spring compressor; however, takes the danger out of removing the spring from the shock.
It is important to know that once back on the ground, it can take a few days for the coils to settle into their final height, so always give it a bit of time before jumping to conclusions.
The springs definitely give a firmer ride in combination with the stock shock setup while still leaving it comfortable enough to live with during everyday driving. Although it would be best to have incorporated a shock more suited to this coil spring, the combination of H&R springs and stock shocks and struts on this 3 series make the vehicle a bit more fun to drive without ruining the ride.
