Scale Suspension ??

hey guys new to e46fanatics and new to the bmw gang. To start off i own a 2003 325i , when i got it , it was on raceland coils. did all the maintenance on it and put everything stock . now to my question , i am in the market for a good budget set of coilovers. i am in between BC Racing or ScaleSuspension . i am more leaning to scale suspension just because i have heard good things about them but not many from bmw owners. i am wondering if any of you guys are running ScaleSuspension coilovers and if so are you happy with them or reccomend any others , budget is at 1500 ! any input is great . thanks in advance!

Have never heard of scale. But I've heard plenty about BC. I would go with BC if it were me. Much more support here. Take that from someone running Tein SS. No one knows sh!t about these

Its really just about the support you'll get. If the Teins and the BCs were the same price, I would go BC all day. Or PSS. Or KW. But my setup was a different scenario. Id go with a name I know I trust. And you can talk to plenty of people here running BC as well.

Undoubtably. Just more expensive and unless you go with V2 or V3, the money can probably be spent better elsewhere.

With no reviews on the E46 Scale and not even any real images of the E46 setup, I'd keep my distance for now. But hey, anything is better than raceland!

Absolutely V2 or V3's are awesome but I was trying to keep the whole "budget" theme.
