They are very rare in Norway, about 2-4 for sale a year at the biggest internet marketplace for cars here in Norway.
Mostly due to the price when it was new... The car prices are insane here in Norway!

Ok, to the topic at hand:
I was one of those guys that sad Bilstein/Eibach combo was the best, for the first year or so.
Then things started to go bad, the car got "bouncy" and hard, so I checked and saw that one of my rear springs was broken and the shocks where leaking oil.
So I got two new Eibach springs and two new Bilstein shocks (on warranty) and now 6 months later... the car is "bouncy" and hard again

I had a "sniking" suspicion that that was the case whit H&R...! Dam
Well I see Bilstein has a set called B12 for the 330XI model whit shocks and springs, lowering 30/30mm.
Guess I'll try that one then...

Isn't that just the 15mm thick spring pad for the back springs?
If it is, then yes I have the rough road pack.
