Hello, I have a 2021 Model 3 Performance that should be here by the end of the month. I have read through different threads but have not been able to find what I am looking for so I thought I would post. I would like to lower the M3P with lowering springs vs switching to a full coilover (less expensive alternative). The car will be for commuting to and from work and I like the look with the springs. The 3 springs I am considering are Eibach, Unplugged Performance as well Tsportline. Eibach seem pretty new so I have not seen much about them. Unplugged seem to have mixed reviews and Tsportline I have not seen much at all so maybe no news is good news?

Any feedback would be appreciated and also if anyone has pictures of a lowered M3P feel free to post : ) Thank you!

I have Eibach, feels a lot like stock maybe a little stiffer. I've only had mine a few hundred miles but so far so good.

I wold vote for H&R but don’t see it listed. I’ve had mine for about 12k miles and love them. They look great and marginally improved the handling (though coil-overs will control the suspension a bit better if that’s what you are after).

Your car looks great.

These are what I went with:

Install was super easy, and I'm pretty happy with them. I was expecting the rear to sit slightly lower though. I might take the rear out and trim the lower rubber mount a bit to bring it down.

Here's the height measuring from my fender to the wheel lip before and days after install:

The only reason I didn't go with Unplugged was because I read about clunking noises.
The only reason I didn't go with Eibach as a secondary option was because they were out of stock for weeks and I was impatient.
TSportLine answered my phone call, had them in stock, and had them to my house in three days.

As for performance, I was maxing out at 1.1G lateral on stock. Same parking lot, similar temp day, I hit 1.4g laterally once. I also have beat on them and I'm really impressed with how well they pair with the stock shocks. I'm not trying to race this thing, just make it look nice and drive well.

I'm really happy with them all around.

That's a stock '21 LR in white.

Good luck OP!

Thank you for the information and your car looks great! To me these lowered cars looks like OEM!

keep in mind, Eibachs made some changed to their moderate springs. used to be 1.1inch all around.. they've changed it to 1.1 in the front and 1.4 in the back now.. for some, that means RAKE.

I do not think I would like that since I am in the car by myself most of the time....
