FS: Ground Control coilovers for all E46s except M3

Pretty much up there with the best of coilover kits. Just have a look around at what people have said on this forum and on other bits of the net.

Constant spring rate to help predictability with handling and the car grips the road like sh1t on carpet. These have done 11,000km so they're basically new. Comfortable on the street, not a slammed look and only lowers it about 20-30mm from stock which is great for the crappy roads we have and you don't want to look fully sik.

Kit comes with:

2 Koni single adjustable struts
2 SHORT Koni single adjustable rear shocks
4 Eibach ERS springs, driver school or track event rate
4 Ground Control bump stops (made in Germany)
2 Rear Ride Height Adjusters
1 Pair front Camber Plates
1 Pair rear upper shock mounts

F: 440lb/inch R: 550lb/inch

Fits all E46 models except M3.

http://www.ground-control-store.com/.../II=692/CA=177

Cost me over $2k to import them from the USA. Selling due to sale of my car.

$1200. Flat rate postage to anywhere in Australia for $100.

Pretty sure, at least in QLD, Coilovers require a mod plate.

What's required for a mod plate? I have the tax invoice if it helps.

Coilovers + sway bar package. Do it

Added pics.

I'm very surprised that these and the Whiteline sways haven't been picked up yet for the prices I've listed them at. Both are practically brand new and will save nearly $1k from buying new.

Bump.... and agreed.

GLWS!

I'll be in Perth for work from May, so I'd be happy to transport these over to anyone who buys them in Perth for free to pick up from the CBD.

PM me if you're interested Shanebenn! You won't regret purchasing such a good suspension setup.

Bump after getting back from o/s.

I'll be in Sydney next Thursday (2 May) night, so happy to bring them up with me to save Sydney guys postage.

You'll have to pick them up from me as I'll be stuck in a CBD hotel though.

Yup, they're on ebay too. Lots of watchers, no buyers.

Sorry, coilovers have been sold.

It's funny how after three months of being for sale I don't get one bite, but when they sell, I have many enquiries!
