That cluster is a cluster. This is a BMW, not a Hyundai Veloster. What is wrong with the amber again?

So it sounds like if I were to replace the shocks/struts on a factory Sport Package car (including springs), I would go with reds or possibly the STRs.

Any thoughts on how those two compare to the...
