pic request Eibach Pro-kit standard suspension

Hi everyone,

I'm considering to lower my BMW 520d with Eibach Pro-kit springs. I do not have the M-Sport Package. The suspension is stock

Does anyone have pictures with the Eibach Pro-kit on standard suspensions
I'm afraid that 30mm front and 30mm rear is too low. I have now 19" OEM rims and I don't want it too low.

I can't find pictures on the internet

Thanks in advance!

I had Eibach PRO-KIT Performance Springs #20112.140 installed 11/30 at So Cal Suspension in El Cajon. Their cost was $350 for the install (all four), an initial alignment, and an offer for a follow-up within 700 miles to check fittings and alignment. They did a great job and showed me the various stages they went through as the work progressed. They were able to acces the top of the rear strut assemblies by removing the speakers from the rear window deck and did not have to remove the rear seat. The car, in my opinion, looks much better now that it fits onto the 18" wheels more closely and sits slightly lower. The drop seems perfect to me because it makes the car look better without being obvious; it is subtle. During the install, the shop noted that the front and rear springs are almost identical in size and had to be differentiated by part number. I was worried about a rough ride with the lower springs...not so! The ride is much better than with the original springs.
