i have been looking for simply lowering springs and nothing is out yet for our cars application (C250 coupe)...
(tentative arrival time 9/1/12 per eibach and h&r).

eibach pro kit: #10-25-019-03-22

h&r sport kit: #52794-2


i also want to buy 19" wheels but there's no point until the cars lowered.

By the way not mine... Member 'Yuman' is the owner.
He did it well. The wheels look great with the window trim.

I just got mine dropped on Friday. Approx 1 to 1.2 inch drop with H&R. Ordered it 2-4 months ago, but never got around to installing.

Tirerack should have the correct part number. You should order it from them. Usually the cheapest price online and shipping is extremely reasonable for the size of the package.

I'll post some pics after installing my new set of wheels. Drop won't do the car justice on 18" AMG wheels or cheap wheels.

new to the c350 coupe had e92 335xi for a couple years and knew that if you had put different spring instead of coilovers that you would have severe damage over the course of time to the stock suspersion. Is this the same for the c350 coupe or do they have a different type due to the agility suspension control. Would save alot of money if someone could clarify for me!

~ i have had several bmws (plus an e92) and ran just eibach springs with no concerns (perhaps not the case in the xi?).

i plan on installing the eibach pro-kit once availabe without replacing the shocks... there should be no issues with this set up on the mb.

Going for a 1 or 1.5 inch drop was wondering if anyone had recomondations. Any effect with the agility control with springs put on to?

well i had the eibach pro-kit springs installed today...


i love the drop on the front but the rear seems to have very little change? do you think it will settle? (specs were to be 1.1" front & 1.0" rear) ... thoughts?

Personally, Andrew yours looks better than the black one. Having a forward raking stance with lower in front than back looks a billion times better than the other way around like the black car. Last resort you could cut a coil or 2 on the back springs...these aren't race cars so it doesn't really matter much.

You can always put a shorter spring pad in to lower the rear a tad more

No whole behind any badging on our cars besides for the rear trunk mercedes emblem (three tiny holes)... just use some strong fishing line or something thin and a hairdryer. The double sided glue they use is STRONG!

As far as the drop goes, give it a couple days. The springs will most likely settle a little bit over the next 3-5 days, lowering it a little bit more. If not, then you can always cut a little bit more of the springs off, or use thinner pads as suggested.

i had a 9mm pad installed on the rear today. i was told the w204 cars should have a 13mm pad in the rear but the coupe has a 17mm pad (4 bumps noted in pic)... therefore i switched to a 9mm pad for the correct spacing (8mm difference). it sits perfect now.

Finally got a chance to wash and wax my car. Hours of sweating and it was worth it. Enjoy the photos
