H&R Lowering Springs Questions

I'm looking into H&R Sport Springs for my 550 GT... and had a few questions before purchasing it.

1. After BMW installs it, they said it will not void the warranty unless something happens to the springs. Now, does H&R have a warranty? And for how long? And what does it cover?

2. How is the ride. I've heard it tightens up the suspension and gives a nice drop. Is there any rubbing? Does it make the ride quality crappy?

That's all. I've found a set for only $260 for the F07 on Eurosport Design, seems like the lowest price I can find.

It makes the ride quality crappy, and they are way too low ---- Go with the ACS --- great ride quality and not so LOW!!

I am happy with my h&r springs. I had acs and they were making strange noises. I ended sending them back. Drop was not that noticeable with acs because i already had m sport suspension.

Well it seems like they don't make them for the GT.

Is the ride still comfortable? And is there any warranty on the springs?
