brand......quality.

cant speak for pedders but the kw's are pretty decent. they come with new front sway bar links, c spanners, washers etc, no front strut tops or rear shock mounts tho.

Don't think other manufacturers come with RSMs and FSMs unless there was something really different about "their" design.

yeah i wasnt sure. i know with *** stuff (hks tein etc) you can order them with pillowball upper mounts or without. Plus i saw some "kits" available in the US that came with RSM's but they may have just been an added extra by the sellers, not the manufacturer of the coilovers.

My Ride: e90 325i 6MT
anyone else noticed their car is down on power lately? dunno, just this hot weather makes my car feel like full throttle isn't really hitting full power anymore. also, after the subframe repair (and alignment), feels like my car either has more grip, or less power, coz it's a lot harder to get sideways now.

thought maybe my accelerator cable needed adjusting, but it seems to be ok...cept still really stiff. should really get round to getting a new one. gonna order a new batch of parts from pelican...was also thinking, anyone replaced their RTABs here? my rear end is feeling mushy. everytime i go over a bump mid corner, it feels like the rear wheels toe-in.
sigh. 170k kms coming up soon. so many things to do.

hahaha, ever since my car's been back running again, i've been pushing it to see if everythings fixed....and finding all these problems. or maybe it's in my head. lol. family's getting sick of me saying "this and that needs fixing"

A little physics101, when it's hot the air is less dense, hence your engine won't be getting in as much as it does when it's cooler, so you'll have less power as your air/fuel ratio will be lower than it is on a cold day.
