Run them on my car and havent has a single issue with mine. I'm not spending boo koo money on coils with a million and a half adjustments. if you have just a daily car and are looking to lower or slam your car, these are just fine. Almost everyone that hates on them has 0 experience with them. I live in the middle of the mountains and what I consider some awesome awesome roads and these handle just fine for me. They are fairly firm and may not have the greatest performance but dont be scared of them. we have some super shitty roads and Ive bashed potholes and constructionzone and its scared the **** outta my but they held up fine

Garbage. I'd rather put stock suspension with 150k on my car before these...

Maybe if your old suspension had too many miles on them.

I wouldn't be so sure of that. BMW invests tons of money into making sure their cars perform well, and while stock suspension may not be the best suited performance driving, I don't think a set of coilovers that run around $300 for all four will outperform them.
