    Hi guys and gals. I've being a member of this forum for a while now buy have sat in the background a lil reading all the useful info you lot have being supplying. Now I have a headache with the above decision and hoping for some input.

    I've heard a lot about both these kits but I'm undecided on which to go for. As I have had a 325 and now have a 328, both have being on Bilstein B12 Shocks and springs but have had nothing but trouble with the shock leaking (4 rears and 1 front in just over a year). Coilovers seemed to be the way I would like to go but I want fixed rate dampening as it's my daily drive, I don't want to be adjusting them all the time. (I have enough fun with that on my track car).

    Both kits to me seem to offer the same i.e. Both German, TUV, and 2 yrs warranty. But hottuning price is £200 and AP is £400. I can find a lot of info on the hottuning coilovers with mixed opinions, and I have spoken to 3 UK Stockist of AP and all have said AP are good value for money. Please if any1 has any experience with either of these kits and could point me in the right direction that would be greatly appreciated.

    P.S. I can ramble on a lot...I apologize now hehe

    I see you have had a read through here then you would know that a lot of members are using the hottunings kit which I have heard for the price are very good and recommend them to use.I haven't heard much about AP so can't comment about their kits.
    I would say thumbs up for hottuning from what I've heard though but you got to take into account that they are only £200 so can't really expect to get what you would from say Eibach or Bilstein.....

    I have just fitted a hottuning kit standard not coil overs and having had koni's on my cars in the past I can say that I am impressed with the fit and quality of the ride. They are still bedding in but the ride is quite compliant but when you push a bit it feels like you are in control and know what is going on at all times.
    I can thoughly recomend these kits from hottuning.
    Boyo
