Question Anybody riding on Bilstein Sports Shocks/Struts?

I'm looking to get these bad boys and was wondering if anyone in North Jersey has them so I could possibly get a feel for the ride before I drop the dough. Thanks!

Darn, I'm looking for non-M since a lot more of your suspension is different than mine.

Bumpy but not harsh.

I have them paired with h&r sport springs. Hd bushings. And h&r sways. I previously had the Sachs/uuc setup. Definitely a more comfortable but less sporty ride.

I'm at nearly 103,000 miles and have never replaced my shocks or struts. The drive would be much more refined, wouldn't it, absorbing smaller bumps and what not?

definently a hell of a ride. Bilstein sports give it a nice stiff feeling over bumps.

Yeah. Definitely more refined. You'll hate potholes more than you used to though. They're amazing on the track though.
