NO, just save and buy some ST's. You said it yourself that it rode like crap on your vdub... it will be the same on your BMW. People will suggest swapping springs or swapping struts but it still rides pretty crappy.

yup i do and for under 600 bucks my suspension is as firm and ready as any to carve up canyons. i go just about everyweek with many different types of cars and my ride has no problem keeping up with stock m3's .

if your on cost side for suspension its a great setup for the price mine is not even raceland though.

8k in the rear 10k up front bilstein sports with h&r bars and alot of power-flex bushings you cant even notice the race lands anymore :thumbsup:

stop hating its shows your ignorance

well. not really. Id save up for something nice. Status Gruppe Tuning has great coilovers, that have a lifetime warranty. Not many others with that.

330LOW, you've made a good decision - both for you and your car.

I'd go with ST coilovers as well. All my customers who have got ST's say they're glad I recommended it to them. Made by KW and their engineers, great for daily driving, with enough performance to keep you happy as well:

Have any of your customers complained that the ST coilovers don't go low enough?

This issue has blown up since I posted about my case, just wondering.

Honestly, I haven't, and I haven't seen your thread either actually. You mind PMing me the thread URL so I can take a look?
