H&R vs Eibach - pics, please!

Hey everybody,
Just wondering if anyone can share a side-by-side picture/comparison between the H&R and Eibach lowering springs.

I'm starting the process of dreaming and would like to see some samples.
I know the difference is minimal (1.2" H&R vs 0.8" Eibach), but any help is appreciated.

A few things to consider (preferably):
  • On an M6 (F12, F13, or F06)
  • 20" wheels (OEM or aftermarket, doesn't matter, as long as it's 20")
  • Flat surface
  • Side view
Thank you!
- Leo.

I believe XSTAR_007 is on Eibachs on his M6 GC (although I believe he is on 21" HRE's) and Flo1989 is on H&R's on his if you want to poke through some of their posts to get an idea.

I agree though some side by side shots comparing the two would be a nice resource. I'm in the process of putting M5 ZCP springs on my M6 GC to see if it will work as intended -- should provide ~0.5" drop which should be ideal for me. I'll post before and after pics if it works out

Takes me a bit to post here, if you have IG feel free to browse any posts as I have a few shots running the Eibach’s on my OEM 20’s along with 21” MVForged set-up. Why not KW HAS and then you decide unless cost is an issue. If I started from scratch that is what I would do as there are days 0.2mm lower when on the 21’s I think would be perfect. That said where you drive may matter for clearance and personally on OEM wheels 0.8” seems right (with 10mm spacers)

Ok, with permission from XSTAR_007 and Flo1989, I don't think I can get a better comparison than this. lol.

Haha nice work, Leo. The angle is pretty much spot on for comparing the two.

Haha, appreciate it, man.
Yeah, when I saw 007's angle, I knew I had seen your car sitting pretty much exactly the same.

Hopefully this will help others in the future.
In my opinion (no hate), I think 20" sits better on Eibach, but 21" look super on H&R's.

Oh, you’re fine man. I’m a “no wheel gap / slightly tucked” type of guy and I achieved that look. I would label h&r’s drop as aggressive and eibach’s as sporty. 21’s do look good on these cars, but I did the thin tires on my previous CLS AMG..sticking with 20s this go round for a taller sidewall.

End thread.
Pretty much summarizes what we were trying to accomplish here.
