Are these coilovers any good.?.

Found these on raceland.com. But I never really heard about them I have some pics of them here. This is the info on them (• 1999-2005 BMW E46

*Included with each kit are shortened sway bar end links which are required for installation.

The Raceland E46 Ultimo Coilovers are ideal for the driver who is seeking high performance at an affordable price. Raceland height-adjustable suspension systems are hands down the best coilover kit for your dollar.

The BMW E46 Ultimo coilovers are height-adjustable with CNC-machined locking perches, which allow you to easily adjust your ride height from 1 to 4 inches below that of the OEM suspension. This allows for a more aggressive stance and a lower center of gravity. In addition, you will experience an increase in the handling and performance of your vehicle while maintaining comfortable ride quality. The BMW E46 Ultimo coilovers offer stiffer spring rates and shock valving to further enhance the performance and feedback from your suspension. Each coilover kit has been designed and road tested to achieve a perfect balance of street comfort and increased performance to enhance the stability and grip of your vehicle.

The Raceland E46 Ultimo shocks are perfectly matched to the included springs to achieve optimum damping abilities. The Ultimo shock body is powder coated for an extra level of surface corrosion resistance. The coil springs are epoxy powder coated to increase the life of the springs.

As with all Raceland products, our E46 Ultimo Coilovers come with a satisfaction guarantee and an unmatched 2-year warranty. )

Stick with the known, tested, reputable brands. I highly recommend KW for a car that will be primarily on the street, the V2's having the best price for what you get IMHO. However, the Clubsports (running them currently) are absolutely awesome, and an excellent option if you are planning to go to the track regularly while still driving frequently on the street. The only better performing coilovers (of the dozen plus I have extensive experience with) come at a significant amount higher price from the likes of Moton/JRZ/Ohlins.

TCK are great as well, but I don't care for Koni dampers a whole lot. The Bilstein PSS/10 are liked by some, but I find they are not well rounded and combine an unnecessary harshness on the road with lackluster performance on track, and the stiff/harsh ride makes them less than transparent in terms of feedback at the limit resulting in fairly unpredictable give away.

KW V2s are pretty decent im currently running those right now, ive heard horror stories about the ride and quality of racelands, so i cant say for myself but from reviews id say pass on these.
