    I ve decided i need some coilovers or rather my car has for me because the shocks are now leaking fluid badly. I am a complete novice when it comes to coilovers and am in need on some advice.

    I am looking to spend at most £400 and would like if possible 4 adjustable shocks not just the front two. Can anyone recommend a good manafacture?

    Are hottuning a good coilover make as i havent heard a lot about them?

    Help is greatly appreciated

    Hottuning do a kit that you can get through here-look them up.
    A few members have them and have said they not too bad for a budget kit-not sure how well they would cope on a track though

    Yep they are the ones Lloyd. As the rear spring and shock are seperate on the E36, the rear springs have seperate height adjusters....
