In Reply to: True, $375.00 on springs, you wasting money...: posted by ///ArmanI on September 13, 2000 at 15:40:32:

Not to attack H&R (they are an excellent spring and suspension manufacturer), if you speak to anyone who has the H&R springs in their M3, you will find two things:

1) Too low in the back compared to front.

2) Too harsh for street use as they are designed for race use (that's why they're called "race springs").

And if you speak to anyone who has Euro M3 springs, you will find:

1) Excellent front/rear rake.

2) Excellent for street/track use, not too harsh.

Now, to compare both to the new cold-wound (NON-sagging) UUC Tuned Spring Set, you will find:

1) Excellent front/rear rake (1.1" drop).

2) Excellent for street/track use, not too harsh.

3) $175 less expensive than Euro M3 springs.

4) Manufactured under license by a major suspension company to UUC specs (you didn't think we were winding them down in the basement, did you?).

I'll be glad to answer any other questions. As always, quickest response is by writing to me directly.

And you wanna buy springs from a company that has been aroudn making them for a while not one that just started a week ago. I rather go with H&R anytime and I'm sure everyone else in here has them.

They have been around for years and have experience in the field.

Hope this helps

Just my .02

"With the thought of using stock suspension in mind, we sought to duplicate the Euro factory parts..."

And $375.

That's quite expensive, I'm sure they're good springs though.

Save your money, get H&R.
