I had them on my second Porsche, a 964.
Rather tough...................:eek:
Actually I thought these were a rather good upgrade to my M3 quite a few years back - did a great job of eliminating a lot of the roll and slop in the standard E36 M3 setup without being too harsh on rough surfaces. Not sure about on JCW but imagine its a pretty good choice. (would love to hear impressions as I might follow your lead if they are favorable... :) )

Here are the photos with the pre and post assembly of Eibach Por-Kit springs.







After 1 day it settled at about 2 cm I still hope something in the prox days, already so the visual effect is much improved and the feeling of driving (handling) has also improved.

Thank you, have you had any issues with your modifications? Particularly with the lowering, any issues with bottoming out, and ride quality?
No particular problem on the assembly, the mechanic (NO MINI) had a little 'to get ready to mount them but nothing exceptional. He worked by hand without electric / pneumatic screwdriver.

No bad driving sensation. The feeling of driving has remained intact.

I know that the H & R springs are harder and lower about 0.5 / 1 cm more than my Eibach but I found 1 really good offer and I bought it.

Maximum visual performance and increase of the go-kart feeling at a very economical price.

You not got any zoomed out side on pics of the car since the springs were fitted?
Hi, I have no other specific photos. If you tell me what you need, I can get them. ;)
