Default Tein CS vs Eibach Springs

I have an 01 430 and I am debating between the tein cs coilovers and eibach springs. My main objective is to lower the car and retain a decent ride - I'm not looking to turn it into a sports car. Any one have any experience with both these set ups to confirm which will offer a better ride with a drop. Thanks

The ride with the Eibachs will really be determined by what shock you go with. if you use an OEM shock it will be a pretty nice ride still, just getting rid of the "float" when driving especially at higher speeds.

If you go with a stiffer shock that is when you start to infringe into the territory where the CS may prove superior, as it is a matched spring/shock set.

We do a boatload of CS's these days, no complaints yet even from a very diverse demographic.
