    AP coilovers are decent at around that price.. FK AKs are ok and cheaper again..

    I'd save a bit more and get some better ones personally. You can pick up Spax ones for a decent price and they will last a hell of a lot longer generally. Or bottom of the range KWs etc.
    I had H&R coilovers on my 328 and they were superb.

    Agree with Alex H&R are brilliant, if you can save some more money and get something better but as a tuner and deal with questions like this day by day:

    AP coilovers are OK as a budget kit - will last the 2years warranty.... pretty much go faulty after that - They ride pretty well too.

    FK coilovers, wouldn't ever use them, we sell them and nothing but issues and problems and delays - shit coilovers, shit ride.

    I have just done mine with cheaper ones & found the front wheels did not fit, so now have to get new alloys.
