Bc or st coilovers?

I am looking to get one of these coilovers within the next week or so. My question is, which one you think will be better for these ny/nj roads and weather?

hmmm, BC... because it has more anodizing, and more adjustability.

on the other hand St is made by KW which will offer you probably better warranty coverage if anything were to go wrong. st is also cheaper as well.

ST's are more comfortable than the BC's in my opinion, so technically, because of the rougher roads and weather in NY/NJ, I would suggest ST's... The warranty of course as mentioned previously is also quite nice, 5 years of warranty from ST obviously backs you up if there is an issue. Lastly on top of everything, it is a KW part, so the quality control on these parts is through the roof, and I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised to find that your ride will be looking better, and feeling better once you get set up on these:


*ST V1 Coilovers E46 3 Series

If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!

BC's get my vote use them and couldnt be happier as far as quality control I've read about clunking problems with ST's on e46's and never anything with BC's

Had ST's on my M3 and BC's on my M5. Both are really nice but ST offers a warranty of 4 more years than BC.
