Looking into coilover

My 03 325 coupe needs a refresh on suspension. So I have been looking into coilovers relatively under $1000.

As of now I have it down to h&r cup kit and ST coilovers. Trying to get an idea of which would be better for a DD roughly 12k a year on Florida roads.

If any what other systems would you guys recommend?

Thanks

Heard that ST coilovers are fairly solid for the price, and they're made by KW which is always a good thing.

ST Suspensions is a great choice. Made by KW and comes with a 5 year warranty. These can handle AutoX as well. However if you are looking for a SLAMMED look these might not be for you. These will only get you a max of 2.8" front and 2.0" rear. Keep in mind that these measurements are taken from a brand new E46 and do not account for spring/shock fatigue.

We offer forum discounts for members. Contact us if you have questions or need a price.
