Lol it's not assumption little guy. Suspension is only half the game. Tires, driver, & conditions make it a whole new ball game. I'm not knocking your set up. If you like it then its perfect. Personally, I'd rather have something up front that is just as good as the rear and designed together. Are your rear shocks valved for that spring rate? Because that's what you get with a kit. For $550, is it a good set up? Maybe so. Is it worth $300 now? Probably. It's like buying replica wheels. They do the same thing but in above average conditions & resell, one obviously shines. It's all personal preference & in the end, I'll pay if I choose to.

Bought the racelands brand new which can be proven by a fanatic .. Linear 10k springs were used bought on here. ( who the hell buys new springs when they are here for half price and in new condition) .. Bilstein sports were bought new.. I added it up.. Came out to somewhere like 550 with endlinks and everything after I sold the rear for a 100 bucks.. Funny how ignorant you 2 are.. Come on guys keep your hating coming.. You don't seem to be the brightest and most opened minded people on here but remember what they say assuming makes an a$$ of yourself
You're full of sh*t.

A new RL kit, bilsteins shocks, endlinks, and used rear springs won't cost anywhere near $500. Even if it did, I'm sorry for your loss.

im just telling you if you are looking for a slammed drop go for racelands and save some money but if you want some quality handling springs meant to take a beating then go with H&R Eibach or KW its worth the money if you are not only looking for a drop. dont buy racelands and expect to handle better then the stock suspension setup

I actually installed 4 sets of RL's last month, I just think the owners dont post about it. Comparing RL's to something like KW's or H&R's is like comparing a Smart car to an M3. Point is that for everyday commuting around town the Smart is fine, but when you hit the highways, well now you want something like the M. Same would go for RL's. For slamming and normal driving they're fine, but if you push the car hard, now you want to be on a better set of coilovers. It just matters on the use and budget of the driver. On a side note we have installed a Street Edge set on a 325i I own and I have nothing but good things to say. I will give a full review in the Street Edge post as soon as I detox from SEMA.

You should facepalm yourself with a ****ing chair. Quit your bitchin', this is an internet forum, and even if you win the argument, you still look/sound retarded.

It's annoying as ****, leave it alone already.

Bro, u might be mad then.

You're in a 58 page review thread about raceland coilovers, and the first thing you ask is how they ride. And then if anyone knows about street-edge coilovers. Get fvcking real.

I guess you appreciate sh*t talkers like steven who misguide clueless n00bs like yourself.
