Fitting D2 Pro Spec Coilovers - remote reservoirs
 
Hi, first real post on here, but I have a feeling you will know MUCH more about this than anyone in the UK!

I often search the forums for answers so never had a reason to post.

I have just purchased a set of D2 Pro Spec coilovers from a nice chap in Italy and had them shipped to me in England.

They have external nitrogen reservoirs and I am unsure with how to fit / refill them as the gauges currently read 0 psi. I am seriously hoping someone can help me.

It is not the actual fitting I am struggling with it's more the reservoirs, where can I mount these safely? And any ideas about getting them refilled.

The car is a 330ci prefacelift model.

Thanks in advance, George


These are the coilovers in question

Dude that's sick, I'm running the D2 street versions. Front res can prolly go under the hood by the strut towers with some fabbed brackets. The rears the same way, may require drilling. I dunno what you can get away with given the amount of line you have.

Totally forgot I posted this - still not got around to fitting them yet, although I have looked into it and the fronts as you said are being mounted on the strut tower inside the engine, I will try and make use of some of the prefabricated mounting points.

For the rear I have ordered a cheap and cheerful rear strut bar from Hong Kong which I will mount them too to make a nice little feature of ;)
