M5 comp and springs

Hi
Since the m5 comp is already lowered, is it a good idea to go with hnr m5 comp?
Will I see a difference as advertise with the hnr?

I want a drop but not that much

Thanxs guys

Go with H&R M550i springs .. they work well on the Comp setup.

You can always go with H&R M5 springs but the drop is not great IMO.

I have the m550i springs on my m5 comp... going to probably catch a lot of heat for this.. but by far the worst riding lowered car I have ever driven.

I don't have a comp, so can't compare. In the non-comp, with 550i hr springs, the only suspension mode that works great for me is sport. Comfort is not good, sport plus is way bouncy.

Do you find all suspension settings are bad?

Why heat?? I appreciate the honestly personally.

Can you give more details on how it rides and why it's bad?

I am on 21" wheels and a 30 series profile tire, but previous cars I have owned were all running 25 or 30 series tires so I can't see that being the issue. I had H&R's on my Ghibli SQ4 and had no complaints - the only thing I chalk it up to that these were designed for the m550 and not the M5c.

With other vehicles I have run coilovers or bags so it may not be a fair comparison - but I am most likely going to swap over to KW's because I don't even enjoy driving the vehicle on a daily basis, I've taken my q50 to my office the past few days.
