tbh none , dont buy cheap coil overs, i see plenty of cars come into work and its my job to set up the alignment and suspension and belive me they are crap.
spend the money dude dont do ebay junk, your stock suspension will out handle any of them if set up right and in good condition.
the best option if you cant afford the doller that decent kits demand is uprated shocks with eibach springs.
slamming a car on its arse i must admit mite look cool but itle do nothing for the handling of the car .
id recommend the ta technix setup
i got mine off the hottuning vendor on here and i cant fault them at all
the ride is very good considering how low it is
Bilstein coilovers if you want the best..........
But if you don't want to spend a lot then I would suggest Hottuning as they are very good for a budget kit..........
HOTTUNING bimmerforums offer: BMW E36 3-series Coilovers
why would you guys wana take a suspension set up that bmw spent millions on designing and making it the best handling car in its class ,to replace it with something with no research and development behind it and made from materials so cheap it makes it financially viable to sell at less than £250 ?
I don't!.I just want to improve the handling.The car has only done 57k but it's 16yrs old now,so suspension probably needs fettling.Bushes too.
bilsteine shocks ebiach springs, poly flex front and rear, uprated anti roll bars and some decent tyres on a resonably low profile, thatle see you right, you wont improve the handling by fitting ebay stuff mate. people may say yea fitted the hot tunning coil overs and its awsome, but thats because they proboly notice alot less body role and a bumpyer ride ,which mite give them the impression there in a go kart ,but its far from the reality of it, givin the state of the roads and in the interest of tyre longevity it would meane you would stuggle to find a proper garage to do your alignment, as the ride heights on some of these cheapo kits is very very hard to get spot on.
call me old fasioned but i am a firm beliver in you get what you pay for, whislt i fully apreciate money for all of us is tight i tihnk there are other better safer ways to acheive the same result.
