very unhappy about eibach's

So I finally decided to install the eibach pro-kit
and i am left unsatisfied by the results, it looks stock to me!

the good news is that the ride quality feels the same, but there is still a 2 finger gap which visually looks almost close to stock

I do however have a new 5mm spring pad that i will have my shop put in to level the rear, but is there a FRONT spring pad? other threads have not confirmed this.

no substitute for coilovers. Do it once and do it right.

Give it a couple hundred miles and the springs should settle a little more. In my experience with both companies (all be it on mustangs), Eibach's tend to sit a little higher than any H&R spring. They should settle between .25" and .5" over a couple hundred miles though.

just let it settle if you dont like the drop after settling than go coilovers.

They don't have spring pads for the front. only for the rear. I tried getting spring pads for the front but they don't have any for the W204.

give it a couple of days...the springs need to settle a bit.
i had the prokit on my e46 m3 and it dropped an additional 8mm after a few days.
