The drop is currently bedding in and over all I am really impressed with the quality of the ride while still giving a very noticeable difference in handling. Eibach are well known for their OE ride quality while providing a noticeable drop, body roll in corners has been near eliminated yet still being a phenomenal daily driver and not being too harsh on speed bumps and pot holes.

Paired up to complete the look you can never go wrong with Bimecc spacers running a 12mm on the front and 15mm on the rear to thicken up the stance and make the tuck perfect!

As more people take delivery and begin modding these amazing cars Im looking forward to seeing the other options that are available. Drop some Images of yours below and let me know what you are thinking of this set up as well as what you plan to run.
So I just had the Pro Kit installed on my G42 and instantly I noticed a knocking sound when I drive over even the slightest post hole or bump. Is this normal or something that goes away with time? Or did my shop install these incorrectly….
Hey, I'd definitely recommend having that looked at as there shouldn't be any sounds noticeable.
