I will be sad to see these go as they were my favorite mod, but I need more clearance for winter driving and will be switching to a height adjustable setup when winter is over.


Koni - $500 shipped

H&R - $200 shipped

You might want to consider adding "M3" to you title, because they Won't fit Non-M Bimmers.

Having just bought a 330 in need of a suspension, I was ready to buy these. Can someone explain why the M3 springs/struts won't fit my 01 330?

Is it just a front end weight issue and the spring rates are higher?

You'd need to change out (Buy) everything from the top of the M3 spring Upward to the strut nut that holds everything together to make this work on a Non-M chassis. So figure roughly ~$250 in needed parts for your conversion, it would be cheaper to buy the exact same struts & springs brand new for your Non-M. For someone with a M3, this is a nice setup.

Like rob said you can get a new set of non m koni yellows for like $600 if you shop around. M konis are around 800 new.
