FK Konigsport Coil-Over Kit Review

I figure I would write up a review for the archives.

Place Purchased: http://www.supremepowerparts.com/
Part #: FKKKBM75

Installation:

The installation took almost 2 hours. It was pretty straightforward. Access to a couple of jacks and a good spring compressor are a must, amongst other things. This http://www.my330i.com/mod10.php and some help from fellow e46fanatics helped the process as well.

Here are the settings I ended up being happy with:

Front Left: 16 Threads from the bottom, Dampening 50%
Front Right: 16 Threads from the bottom, Dampening 50%.
Rear Left: Lowest setting, middle spacer removed , Dampening 75%.
Rear Right: Lowest setting, Dampening 75%

*I removed the middle spacer on the rear left to compensate for car's lean to the right.

The top's of all my fenders now sit at approx. 23.75 inches. The car is definitely low now and if your not careful you will scrape the mud flap things in front of the front tires.

The Ride:

Personally I love the ride and much improved handling. It's firmer than my sport suspension but not quite as firm/bouncy as the H&R race springs I had in my sedan(If I remember right). BTW, I've owned 5 cars in my life, all lowered, and this is the best riding to date.

Here are a couple better quality pics than previous ones I posted. (The original pics I posted the fronts were 11 threads from bottom and I hadn't removed the middle spacer in the rear left.)

According to some other members, it's to compensate for the weight of the driver (i.e. it's level when the driver is sitting in it).

damn, that looks sweet!

I wish the roads around St. Louis were good enough for me to really drop my car...oh well.

BTW, my rear passengers side sits lower than the driver side...
