Yeah guys, if you are indeed interested, I have no problems getting someone another kit so you can post up your unbiased review as well. I've used Eibach systems on my own personal car and I haven't had any complaints, nor have any of my customers.

Regardless, if anyone wants to send me a PM if you're interested in a set, I don't mind doing a special deal on a few sets if some members are interested in getting it but want to get a great deal on it.

Treflip, would you say these allow a lot of room for improvement coming from someone who's getting close to maxing out performance on stock suspension atm?

Would you think 500 F, 550 R springs would help considerably with track manners? These look very promising. I love the fact that they're monotube and don't ride harsh on the street.

ETA on a release btw?
Yes, stiffer springs would decrease roll. Also keep in mind that my M3 has a prototype Eibach 2-Way coilover with much stiffer rates that I'm used to. So I was just giving my candid review of the street coilover. I wouldn't look into going any stiffer until you've tried the off-the-shelf rates first.

And the Eibach monotube shocks are very good. A lot of the Eibach engineers designing the coilovers have an off-road background so it makes for quite unique valving characterstics.

As mentioned before, this a great kit for someone looking for a solid entry level coilover. It would also be a great kit for someone experience but doesn't want to get bumped up into the next class of the series they're competing in because of adjustable dampers. Something to think about Chas3n. I've driven on just about every coilover out there and for a non-adjustable kit these Eibachs are impressive!

As for release, the hard work is done and everything has been designed and engineered. I'll see if Eibach has an ETA on production and will post up details later.

How long can this setup go in the front with the stock strut mounts?

When you say that the "Ground Control street camber plates allowed an extra 12mm of lowering in the front over factory top mounts", did you mean that you gain an extra 12mm of travel?

You mean how low? This kit will lower front and rear up to 2" without GC plates.

There was no extra travel gained that I recall. Though, I didn't do the install on this kit and just going off the notes from the engineers. My guess is the stack height of the GC plates are shorter than OE which allows an initial 12mm of lowering from the get go.

Lowering with OE Mounts:
Front: 0" to 2.0"
Rear: 0" to 2.0"

Lowering with GC Plates:
Front: 0.5" to 2.5"
Rear: 0" to 2.0"

It looks like these coilovers are currently in production and will start hitting the shelves this spring.

A group buy is very likely in the near future.

This is my car they used to test the coilivers. One thing I'd like to add is that it didn't change my daily ride quality. I drive to work a few days a week and track occasionally. It's pretty sick to not break my back and be able to track on same setup. Also I thought my wife would hate it but she says it handles and feels about the same.

I'm stoked on these coilivers and meet my needs for daily driver and track days. Thanks tony and everyone at eibach.

Glad you like them, Blake. The wifey test says it all!

Any more reviews on these coilovers yet? Starting to see them advertised for sale around $1200 and they are pretty tempting.

Looking for a good set of daily street coilovers and the stainless design is a huge plus for me up here in MN. Anyone have experience on how they would compare to KW V1's?
