Do you want the FSD/Eibach kit and another FSD set too? I just wanted to clarify that.

I just wanted your feedback/experience on the STR.T vs OEM on a non-m3 04 325ci convertible.
The wife drives the vert and she only cares about ride comfort, not performance.
Would these restore the ride back to new, or will they make it harsher than the OEMs?
thank you

The Str.t systems is an upgrade from OEM. You will get a sportier ride with them. But, they are not as aggressive as the FSD or Yellows. I would recommend the Str.t as a better option than OEM.

Thanks..ORDER PLACED!

I HOPE that "sportier" does not equal "harder"..? Keep in mind it's my wife's car and as I mentioned, she is into comfort, not really performance.

Thanks for the order.

It will be a little stiffer than stock, but not too bad at all.

Wheels/Tires make a difference?

Thanks again..
Advice please,
Car is an 04 325 Ci Convertible non-M, and I'm running M3 OEM 18s all around (4 fronts since the car is a non-M, and the staggered rears rub the inner fender), wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 All Season 245/40R/18.

Is the tire/wheel combo going to have any effect on the ride and should I change the tire size/brand to offset the additional stiffness from the shocks? Perhaps a taller sidewall. Also, F1's have carbon fiber to stiffen the sidewalls.

Thank you

Typically you feel more of the road with a smaller sidewall. Since you already have the wheels, I would throw them on and see how it feels and go from there.

Order received yesterday..thank you!

I am awaiting a sway bar I bought from another fanatic, and once it's all installed I will report on my experience.

Thanks for the great price and great service.
