I have tried the H&R/Bilstein setup on my 2001 E320 and found it much too harsh for daily driving. A much better choice is the Euro AMG suspension. You can see how my car looks in the attached link. I think the ride height is just right as I like a two finger gap around the tire. If you get a chance, take a ride in a stock E55 and you will understand.
