For what price? Is $400 shipped a fair starting point?

I would like everyone to consider at least $200 in labor to have them removed and likely $50 in fedex fees, which would leave $150 for me toa apply to a new setup.

I'm well aware.

But from my perspective, I'm looking at my total cost to swap a suspension, that is not in need of swapping. I'm looking at $1,000 after shipping of new, shipping of used, and labor. If I can offset that by a decent amount, I will consider it. If my suspension is only going to get me $200, and I'm out of pocket $800 for a basic cup kit, when all is said and done, it's not worth it to me. Especially from someone who perceives OEM, even if used, as better than after-market.

Bottom line, if I can do a cost effective 'upgrade', I will consider. If not, I'll be just as happy keeping my suspension as is.

I've been looking at suspension upgrades for a while and have been browsing the classifieds. You are not getting more than a couple of hundred $$ for your setup. These are just 2 in the last couple of months, where the sellers got just that. Your suspension is on the tail end of its life. So you're not going to get much for it unfortunately, sorry.

I would say $100 for the springs and I don't really see anyone wanting your shocks.
That's top end too. I sold my sport springs for $40

I hear you. Although I think the ZHP setup commands a premium over the regular sport suspension. And these are good for at least another 40k miles, so 'near the end of their life' is a subjective opinion.

If that is all they are worth, then I'll likely keep them. Thanks for helping me set realistic expectations.

Hmm, looks like according to all the other fellow members my offer of $200 after you replied to my post seems more than fair, but I am glad you made this post to for reassurance.

Fair or not, I'm not selling you my suspension for less than the cost of removing it and shipping it. Sorry.

Well I made it clear that it was a feeler and I didn't know what they were worth. What is the point of your post? Would you like to upgrade your crappy 325i suspension?
