VRH coilovers?

Has anyone installed this kind of suspension? I am looking to get this kit for my 325i and was wondering the pros and cons. Thanks for any replies

Why not just save more and get better ones? You get what you pay for

The set for the front is 3k ish I think. Wouldn't it be convenient to raise the front end for a speed bump. Or would I not have to freak out with speed bumps? I don't plan on slamming it but I would like an aggressive stance

save more money? i don't think you know what he's talking about. The VRH Umbrella cup kits are something you can purchase if you still want coilovers but with the ability to raise the car using air whenever necessary. It is a nice option but does come with a price tag that most do not want to spend.

Ha maybe I should have researched it. I haven't even heard of them so I assumed they were cheap ones. Haha that's my mistake

It's cool not many people know about air cups. I have thought about going with them on my CLK but may just do air like my E46. Still contemplating.

They mentioned on their site that it works with existing coilovers so I was confused to whether its an addition or the actual coilover itself. I'm looking for aggressive not stupid poke/tuck stuff. I mean it does look cool but not for a daily driver. Just something that adds comfort and performance all in one. So now I'm questioning doing bags or not.

It is basically an air cup that replaces the spring setup on the coilover. Umbrella VRH is up here in Washington not far from me. If you add them on fb you'll see that the majority of the cars they do are GT-R's, NSX's, Lamborghini's etc so that should count for something.
