Couldn't be happier with these. Just got these installed and already see a significant drop. My shop pre loaded the springs upon installation which was great. They said it will be a little more low after settling but most of it is already settled! Almost all of the body roll is eliminated and steering feels significantly tighter. Highly recommended

These were the HR sport spring set ID 28802-5 .

They were about 300$ shipped from turner and another 350$ to install.

I've been so on the fence about springs or full suspension and then deciding between h&r or eibachs..........this settles it! Ordering a set of H&R's immediately! Perfect drop! Looks great.

I'm under a couple of impressions, some of which might not be true, but I believe they all are.

1. These, and the Eibach's will kill your stock struts, and quite quickly if you have over 50K miles on your car.
2. The drop still isn't even, front still has more gap.
3. The H&R's are stiffer than the Eibach's, so your ride will be more aggressive.
4. There is no real way to lower the M2 properly without coil-over's.

Having said all that, your car looks fantastic.

If you have stock tires, can you confirm how much more gap there is in the front than in the back?

Looks great! What tire sizes and / or spacers are you running?

Here is an update on how the car has settled a little over a week later


My shop says that the front is actually lowered the same amount as the rear it is just an illusion as the rear wheel well sits a little lower on the rear than the front if you were to measure. That is what they told me at least. In this pic maybe the front is a tad higher looking but my wheel is also turned. I am pretty picky when it comes to my car and it is not enough to bother me. I will say the ride is extremely stiff but I could care less.

Does H&R make these for the M2C as well? I would assume so, but almost everyone on this thread seems to have an OG M2.
