    You are best off with the search button mate. Trawl through some older threads and you'll find all you want in there.

    There isnt much that hasnt been discussed already.

    Thats the only problem, IMO its a lot of money to risk but if its good your car will be awsome....

    But if you are buying a new kit I would highly reccomend Bilstein PSS kits. I dont have coilvers but have Bilstien B6 on my 318is and Bilstien B8 shocks on my 325 and I wouldn't use any other brand now. They are superb and stand up to a lot of abuse.....
