Installed them. They feel great. I didn't go as low as everyone else. They feel awesome. Hopefully they last.

I have a used Street Edge USA coilover kit for the E46. $300 plus shipping. Kit tested good. First come first served.

Ryan if your suspension hasn't replaced recently you will notice the most difference. When properly installed customers are reporting happy travels.

I couldn't be happier as of right now. I've taken them on some spirited runs and they've done great.

My original mounts weren't actually bad at all, I could have packed them with grease and reused.

hey the camber looks dope, have u tried it with the coils all the way up? its hard to drive where i live that low. Also ur not scared the coils will break with the camber plates? kinda don't trust these with cambers since ur already stressing it bad

kinda wanna pull the trigger on these since there so cheap, but then again i don't wanna put something so cheap in my car too... lol i know theres a difference between these and and some bc coilovers that i actually was looking at.
