I personally would go with one of these. Having a mod friendly dealer is important. Members on here have had warranty issues because they had aftermarket springs installed.

I installed the BMW cp springs and it definitely is stiffer and 10mm lower but the ride quality takes a hit. Similar to driving your stock car on sport setting. The cp roll bars are amazing though and well worth it.

I have the H&R springs. I really like the look and so do most other people who see the car. They are a bit stiffer but no one will notice but you. I have had no issues. German engineered and made. There is a another thread where one member really talks trash about them, but most people are in my camp. Now watch he will show up here and I will be charred piece of spring! Right Boots!

Eibach. CP Springs worsen ride quality.

So based off what was said above - Eibach is more comfortable than CP springs?

Has anyone compared the two?

I haven't. But I have compared H&R springs on 2013 car vs CP suspension on a 2014 car, and the H&R is much more comfortable. From what I understand the Eibach is optimized for comfort like the H&R and perhaps even more so.

Of course this comparing progressive aftermarket springs, to a CP package which includes stiffer springs and stiffer dampers.

I want to put springs and CP sway bars but don't want to mess with the warranty. Any insight from people here that have had this issue?

My shop that only deals with BMWs and various ///M cars specifically recommend the eibachs. They say the ride is better than the H&Rs. Ill be putting mine on in a few weeks.

I haven't messed around with springs for F10. But speaking from E60 M5 experience, here is the list from most comfort to harshest ride.
- BMW OEM
- DINAN
- Eibach
- H&R

H&R

H&R, hands down. For ride, comfort and stance.

I just had H&R's installed, and there is an almost imperceptible difference in ride quality in comfort mode. I'm lovin' these.
