    i thought that also.
    the coilies wasnt to bad to fit bolt off bolt on jobs really just all depends on whats tight due to not being removed in a while and whats easy i used my same top mounts so we spent some time compressing the spring to remove it but if you got the money id go for new ones dont think they are major expensive then you wont need to strip the old shock apart at all just remove it the rears was a bit fiddley as for the top mount nuts are behind the boot side carpets and under some sponge once you have that out the way its easy and probs give us a msg be happy to help you through it

    Coilovers are easier to fit than springs on the E46.. boot has to be stripped to get at the top of the shocks on the rear..

    Whole job can be done with minimal tools in an afternoon..

    Out of interest what lowering springs did you find that lower 40mm rear and 60mm front Marky?

    I wouldn't touch PI springs mate, garbage.. I hate them on an old escort and they were bad enough!

    I've found weitec/KW do 50mm front, 35mm rear but was looking for a little lower without going down the coilover route

    yer ride is a little stiff on some roads but i dont mind that too much the only thing with slammin a saloon is the long wheel base over bumps i rub the exhaust all the time and im sure ive heard the lower arms rub too but ohwell i do give it a check ever now and then to make sure its all in one piece under there
