Compare lowering springs

I have found 3 brands that I would consider buying
1.Eibach
2.H&R
3.Neuspeed

All are around the same price but the eibachs lower 1 inch and the other two lower 1.5 inches.

Are they all about the same stiffness?
I would like some springs that offer a stiffer ride but I don't think I want Ksports.

Rate the quality of these springs.

I don't know if you have heard of these or would be interested but I have some Vogtland springs installed on my car right now and the drop is good. Rides smooth. I am looking into K-Sports as I want to drop my car lower. Maybe we can work something out.

i recently installed Eibach prokit springs and even though its a bit stiff, i like the lowered stance, and almost no body roll associated with the handling what so ever.

Only issue I have heard with the Eibach kit, is the rear cam sit too low sometimes and it looks weird.

H&R'S have always been the best sport springs IMHO

I have the Koni and Eibach set-up. with the KONI you have a 1/2in more adj before installation. which works out good. Don't recall KONI kit (sring and shocks) was around when i purchase. i prob would have consider. But i'm happy wiht the set-up i have for approx 7yrs now. Not sure of the other springs..

I have Eibach springs on stock struts and it's starting to get a bit bouncy. I'm buying some Koni FSD's hopefully soon. These I was told by a BMW will drop my car a little bit more over the stock struts when combined with the Eibach springs so I'm looking at maybe another half inch drop over what I have now. Looking forward to this setup.

There are a few more I didn't compare. I just wanted to hear opinions on these 3. If I were to spend that much money I would probably just get Ksports.

If you get KSports, I would be interested in your Vogtlands.

I went with koni reds and eibach pro kit springs on my sedan and its a little harsher than I thought but its still nice on smooth roards. Doesn't Eibach make a second lighter set of springs for our cars not "Pro" but "sport" maybe?

Eibachs works great for my taste (ride & height) .. I had RS*R's that were too low .. The H&R are nice but they sit too low for every day use and a camber kit is need to prevent premature tire wear.
All installed on Koni red's

I just installed the Eibach ProKit springs and they are stiffer, but compared to my 01' 3 Series they feel just right
