    I am thinking about purchasing b-c coilovers for my m3 and was wondering if anyone on here has used them, i have only heard good things about them and would appreciate any feedback from bmw forum members.

    think the road based kit including new top mounts etc is coming in at about £650, so pretty good vfm imo!

    yeah seen the thread thanks, i have looked at these as well and tbh am hearing good stuff about both products, they seem very similar the bc's seem marginally better on price. i think that both kits would give similar results with regards to performance as well.

    I have heard that they are pretty stiff?! But other than that, I have heard good thinks about them as well... Although a friend of mine from Eibach called them up if they would be interested in using Eibach springs on their kits and they told him they only cost approx £5-£10 per spring on the kits which Eibach cannot match... So you could look at it in a different light.

    the cost of most springs is probably only about that if made in large enough amounts as well as there only being a few companies that make them ie kw making wietecs etc!

    Indeed mate, I have great trust in Eibach though - even they use KW dampers.

    KW make Weitec and AP coilovers...

    IIRC H&R use a Bilsiten damper?!

    Koni I think make all their own!?

    I know a few peeps with the BC coilovers though seem to be nice stuff.

    It is just a massive worry when you see kits on ebay that are new and cost £150-£200 :O
