My Ride: 2003 330i ZHP
H&R cup kit, vogtland cup kit, Koni SRT would all be better choices IMO. The KYB's on my buddies Civic only lasted him about 5k miles before one was completely blown and my 318 had 2 that were completely gone when I bought it (one front strut basically had no oil left in it when I changed it out, and one rear shock was stuck closed). The PO claimed they had only been on there for about 10k miles, if that's true then those shocks have a horrible failure rate, it could be that the OP had neglected it for far longer then that, but again, I wouldn't chance it with suspension components. I replaced the shocks/struts on that 318 with a Vogtland Junior cup kit and had it on there for 10-15k miles without issues and the ride was pretty awesome for $400 especially since it's from a German company that stands behind their product.
