I'd go with ST coilovers if you want something inexpensive that'll handle the NY roads quite well too. Here, take a look, but ST's are made by KW so you know they're quality stuff:


ST V1 Coilovers E46 3 Series

ST Variant 1
When it comes to choosing the perfect coilover, don't be cheap, do it right the first time; choose ST height adjustable Variant 1 Coilover Kits. Fully threaded shock bodies will enable you to customize your ride height for that aggressive stance that you've always wanted, without sacrificing safety, functionality, or driving performance. Each application is expertly engineered, designed, and test under road and of course track conditions in Europe to guarantee it meets and exceeds the Highest Quality Standards of the German TÜV.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. You can reach me via PM/Email or call me direct at 714.582.3330 extension 8002, but ask for Jurrian when you call in!

RACELANDS!!!!

jk, actually dunno if thats a jk. Read more about that. There are crusaders on both sides of that argument. Also search of Joms coilovers. Those are the super cheap ones.
I am not taking either side in that discussion.

If those prices scare you look into some thing more reputable like FK, or KW Coilovers.

Really? I had them on my car for about a year, I couldn't stand them. Way too harsh, and when you try to adjust them down they're just way too bouncy. Who knows, maybe I'm sensitive

Yeah I guess, but I was looking for a stiffer ride so they work for me. I haven't had the knob turned all the way soft yet.
