Installed H&R Sport Springs on My M235i!

Just got back from European Auto Source again with another update for you guys!

This time, I bring you (possibly) the first set of H&R Sport Springs installed on the M235i in the states! It's been a long wait since I ordered them, but the drop is just perfect IMO. Not too aggressive, but just enough to look lowered.

The experts at European Auto Source didn't seem to have any issues installing the springs, so it looks to be a straightforward install (having the right tools and knowledgeable people helps). I was in and out in a couple hours.

I didn't notice any difference with the ride quality on the drive home (which consists of smooth to very rough/bumpy surfaces at low and highway speeds), so that's a plus!
Update: After adding some more miles on the car, the ride seems to be a bit bouncier, but nothing I would write home about. I'm also used to cars like the GT3 and GTR (I daily drove them at some point), so take my reporting with a grain of salt.

But enough words, I'll let the photos do the talking!
