    Nope but its one of those max puppet type brands.......

    I'd say stick with Eibach (about £150), or Boge Turbo lowering spring kit (I got mine from Linwar Motors for about £105/110!)

    I can honestly say that by the use of new Boge M-tech shocks paired with Boge Turbo Lowering springs, my 328i handling is greatly enhanced and in no way ruined.

    Fwiw, on my cousins Audi A4, he thought he'd be a smart arse and went for SPAX fully adjustable kits, he got shocks and springs within the kit.

    After having it fitted by the VAg specialist (next unit to ours), the car was lob sided (depsite all adjustments being equal). Even after further fetling etc we had no joy. In the end he reverted back to the old suspension after having wasted £500

    i've got odd shocks on the front, so need to replace them, the nearside is a boge turbo shock and the other is some yellow painted shit....

    so i need a complete kit.... seems the boge turbo shocks aren't cheap

    I got my Boge M-tech shocks from GSFCP, about £40-65 IIRC (rear/front). I got my Shock Top mounts from Euroccarparts (lemforder brand) about £10/15.

    Hi Zainey,
    Please read the posting guidelines regarding corerct forum and posting titles
    They are here


    Regarding Jamex kits.... DSK is right on the money with his post..

    They may be 'ok' but are NOT a kit I would go for and in the past I have used a variety.

    The best choice in my opinion is to use an Eibach springs kit, combined with Bilstein dampers.

    Koni are ok (I had them on my last M3) but Billies are better from my experience

    i'm guessing the odd boge turbo fitted to my car would be a better shock than normal boge?

    I used Jamex on my MK1 Golf and as others have said they were "ok"! I have used Koni's as well which were a lot better but still wouldn't compete with a Eibach/Bilstein setup.

    I have a Full Jamex kit fitted to my 1994 E36 325i track day car. This setup gave me a 40mm drop and stiffened up the ride quite heavily. It makes the car uncomfotorble for road use on long trips but makes it handle quite well. I'd say about 60% of body roll is taken away, the rest i'm personally going to try and get rid of with some eibach anti roll bars. Its an ok kit for the price, got mine from RaceDynamics in Andover for 190 quid. They are on the net and ebay it think.

    Hope this helps you make a decision.
    Nick.
