Yeah I'm maybe thinking about buying the Vogtland lowering springs, these drop the same as your springs, they drop 30mm (1.17") in the front and 45mm (1.78") in the rear but I was scared that that could be a little bit to low but after seeing all the images I'm considering buying these.Nice. Those are designed for the 2.0 models sold in your area, which is perfect.
I wish there was a USA lowering spring with a similar drop but firmer and designed for the 2.5L models. My H&R 28821-2 that are for the 2.2L diesels drop 30mm (1.17") front and 45mm (1.78") rear. The stance is a little squat in the rear as a result.
Some more on Tein + 19s. Eibach Prokit provides a tiny bit of better rake.I just Asked this guy what he's lowerings where. The gap is just perfect for me, I'm def gonna buy these.
These are: Tein High-Tech Lowering Springs - BMEFS
This is with 19"" wheels

That silver car above is on Eibach Prokit, not Vogtland.Yeah I'm maybe thinking about buying the Vogtland lowering springs, these drop the same as your springs, they drop 30mm (1.17") in the front and 45mm (1.78") in the rear but I was scared that that could be a little bit to low but after seeing all the images I'm considering buying these.
These vogtland springs are only €137 ( $162) that is a beautiful price and the reviews are pretty good as wel .
Just a little question how is driving over speedbumps like compared with the OEM springs?
Here are some pictures of the vogtland springs:

You get used to driving with them pretty quickly. You take driveways and bumps at angles. I have the aero kit installed too, so my clearance is practically nothing.
You will need to get adjustable end links and resized bump stops with a drop like Vogtland or H&R's though. Only way to make everything work properly. Upgrading dampers and struts will keep your rear happy and not soar after driving home from work everyday. That gets old fast..
Hey Thanks for letting me know!Just FYI, the Vogtland springs provide about the same amount of drop as the H&R springs but the spring rate is close to OEM. This means you will be banging off the bump stops a lot.
Either way you'll need these too.....Cutting the OEM stops just doesn't work......
Yeah but I was first thinking about buying the eibachs but i'm scared they doesn't lower the car enough.Some more on Tein + 19s. Eibach Prokit provides a tiny bit of better rake.
Oh damn I still need to learn a lot but that's why i'm here 😅Bump stops keep the shocks from bottoming out. This will destroy your dampers fairly quickly.
Okay thanks for the information!Rubber secondary spring like ring that sit in between the strut mount and the strut and the damper mount and the damper. They basically prevent the damper or strut from smashing through the floor of your car.
When you lower the car, you need to shorten them as well, about the same amount you lower the car. The link that arathol provided for 5x bump stops is a good one to go with. Otherwise you need to cut the OEM bump stops, which didn't work very well for me. Destroyed a pair of Koni FSD's because I cut the bump stops too much or they didn't work properly anymore... or both maybe.
Whiteline makes good adjustable end links: 300mm in length or so with a m10 ball stud for the front and 125mm in length or so for the rear with H&R's springs installed. These figures are just to help you find the correct adjustable end links, you may need to size yours differently.
Yeah, but the price is a bit steep.....for the rear only, the front is a lot longer.
If Eibach isn't low enough, Tein HTech would also disappoint you.]
Yeah but I was first thinking about buying the eibachs but i'm scared they doesn't lower the car enough.
I have 18"" wheels and all the pictures I saw where not enough for me
