My Ride: 2006 530xi & 330xi
Well, THANK YOU all very much for your insight and sharing your experiences with me on this site. I received the Bilstein M3 shocks for my wifes 2002 330xi today. Along with the shocks I ordered the Rogue Engineering RSM (Rear Shock Mount) kit. It took me 45 mins to replace the right shock and 30 mins for the left shock. With 83,000 miles on the car, the right shock was flat and the left had 20% pressure left. Here in the Northern Virginia area I have yet to find cheaper prices for oil changes. To keep our operating costs down, I'll work on 5000 mile oil changes here at home. Again, thank you all for your patience to explain, document and post pictures of your work here. It certainly shows that you have a passion for your BMW. Cheers! Keith
