Experience with Bilstein, PSS10?

Hi Guys,

Looking at some coils to get my car a little lower whilst retaining the ride comfort. I have a sedan with sportspackage (Euro model) but the front is way too high. The rear is pretty nice but the wheelgap could be smaller.

Not looking to slam the car to the ground as I use it for work, and need it to be sporty yet comfortable.

Anybody have experience with Bilstein, specifically the PSS10?
Would it fit in with what I describe regarding handling and ride comfort?

Also, how does the PSS10 compare to the PSS9?

Thanx in advance!

I currently have the PSS kit in my wagon and I really like it. With the 18's it's a little firm but still tolerable. With 17's, it's very comfy. The only difference I understand between the kits is rebound adjustment. I had the PSS9s on my M3 and even adjusted them after I found the right setting for me. Even when I had the PSS9's, it was very hard to distinguish between say 4, 5 and 6. Not sure why Bilstein needed to go to 10 settings!

For the price, the PSS kits is hard to beat.
