    this could also be a good option, is cheaper but is not a coilover kit. still good quality though

    I think for that budget most go with APs or Eibachs. Personally I have HSDs but they're out of your budget. I also did wheels and coilovers at the same time.

    Not sure what they drive like or what the quality is like, but these are sort of in your budget too:

    So what about hottunings kit then?

    Surely if its mainly a cosmetic thing then there cant be much difference between these and the more expensive kits... apart from £300 quid ish

    I'd say AP are a good bet for that budget.. or GAZ if you can find a little extra..

    if you can stretch to the gaz thats what i'd do as i've only ever heard good things about there service! ie one of the track going guys i know had them on his 328 and a damper went after a good few track sesh's mind and they refurbed it free of charge! no questions!
    plus the dampers are adjustable by the looks of the picture on ebay so you can set the ride how you like it!
    and i remember i was gonna go for these but a guy i know was breaking his car and sold me basically brand new kw v2's for £600

    oh and i live it st athan mate not to far from you!
