The housing is galvanized steel. It can hold up to the elements of weather. If your E46 spends most of its time under snow then KW might be a better option because they are STAINLESS STEEL.

I am planning to get a set of these in summer. I will be out of the country for a couple of months.
I would like to know from the long term users, how did it fare in winter?
Not just the tires but Suspension also plays a good part in handling in the weather, also the durability on the weather will also be my concern since I am in Colorado and we do see a fair amount of snow.
My factory sport dampers are still pretty good. But I am doing a refresh of suspension in summer so was thinking to get these instead of some other spring/strut combo.
My main objectives:
1) Ride comfort equal to factory sports suspension.
2) A little lower than factory sports suspension(not too much).
3) Better handling.
4) No bouncing of rear or too much feedback.
5) What is the maximum(lowest) and minimum(highest) drop compared to sports suspension on the coupe?
6) If someone makes a DIY with some key points, like how the top washers from the factory suspension are placed and torque values that will be great.
Looks like you need an actual customer to answer the rest of your questions
