: Victor,

: I cannot comment on H&Rs, but I had an 83 528e and now have an '87 535is,

: I thought the 528e quite capable-some lean, but very tossable, but the 535is springs and (I understand Sport Bilsteins) are a nice combination for more spirited driving.

: They are firm, but not harsh, and control the car without any bad characteristics. I recommend the combination. Best of all they should be obtainable right at the dealer or after market parts supplier.

: Bob
i installex a set of jamex pregressive springs with standard shocks, lowered about 40-45mm
handles great with no loss in original ride quality, yes it is actually true!
and im running 220 55 390 tyres that now fill up the guards, look good.
Beaker
84 528i
