Hey guys, just wanted to get a few opinions on previous or current raceland ultimo coilovers before I bought them. Are they really that much bang for your buck or should I wait a while and buy something three times as expensive. I won't be doing any racing, just want more low and a stiffer ride. Thanks!

my buddy has them on his mk4 golf and he really likes them. he says theyre a little soft but thats to be expected from a cheaper system. i just got a set myself based on his review but wont be installing them until the spring. hope this helps a little.

I want to see pics of an e46 all the way down on them. My car is on the original racelands and they are supposed to go 3 inches below stock. The ultimos are supposed to go 4, right?

That's an excellent way to do it.

But for those of you that don't want to purchase a Eastwood fender roller, an old wooden baseball bat works quite well.
