H&R Coils = Bilstein shocks !?

I'm still learning all about BMW aftermarket suspension but I was just told but a very good BMW shop that the H&R coilovers use Bilstein shocks!?!? Then I read on here in the Archives from various people's opinions that H&R coil overs are better then the Bilstein PPS9 because they have higher quality shocks ?!!??

Ok, what am I missing here folks

Not Sure Tom, I to was thinking the same thing at one time, but My Man steve has them (PSS9's) and I agree with him that Pss9's are better, and H&R does use Blistein Shocks, PLUS PSS9's have Dampering setting and H&R do NOT, so the choice seems obvious to be PSS9's. I also Talk to my Man DOUG at TMS and he to said PSS9's was a " NO BRAINER" better buy.

Yeah, H&R uses bilsteins. Unless you're looking to slam your car, you should get PSS9's. They kick a$$!!! I know that a lot of people on this board are rolling on 19's with PSS9's and they ride great. It looks good and you really can't get down that low. Right now my front is only lowered a quarter of the way and the front and rear are tucked. And it rides pretty close to the stock sport suspension.
