    Those are the dame wheels I have and I was gonna get those same springs but they were sold out at the time. Now I'm gonna put in hamann springs as the H&R's are supposedly to bouncy. Still the F10 absolutely needs a drop.

    How do you know Hamann isn't using rebranded H&R's?

    Yup. Hamann, AC Schnitzer, etc just have their springs made for them. Same goes for their swaybars, they are just rebranded and sold for more money. I remember back in the day, AC Schnitzer was using Eibach.

    That's why I ask. I thought Hamann was using H&R's but maybe they are Eibach?

    You know I really have no clue. Maybe RD sport? Eibach was supposed to release some for the 550 but I don't think they have yet.

    RD sport just rebrands other springs as well.

    Well then who is making all these springs? Of the companies that traditionally make springs only H&R(to my knowledge) is offering something for the F10. Also the RD sport springs are entirely different from the H&R as the drop is way different plus RD has two types 1 for cars without the DHP and 1 for cars with.

    Traditionally it is Eibach and H&R. They do produce springs that can have different specs for their customers.
