    Here's some pictures of mine. The suspension is still quite fresh featuring a FULL bushes, links, joints, BOGE M-tech shock absorbers complimented with BOGE Turbo lowering spring kit 30/20mm listed for the 6cyl coupes factory fitted with M-tech suspension. Its still settling in at the time of the pictures.

    I can fully recommend the quality and performance beyond any other brand.

    I just had some APEX -40mm F/R springs fitted, I have standard shocks. The ride seems fine not really hard, and I am impressed as they are just about the cheapest -40mm springs kit you can buy.

    Good result for a 40mm spring, looks closer to 60mm to me

    i fitted the shock and spring set from the company that advertises on this site from belguim i think ,
    i went 60mm on the front and 40mm on the rear if thats how they advertise them 60/40 anyway the back went a bit to low when i put my speaker box in but this did stop any drifting in my e30. Yesterday i changed my rear springs as i cuoldnt get over speed bumps without the bottom of the car scrapping i put the standard tourer ones back on until my new ones arrive i feel like i am in a dragster now high at the back low on the front i hate it.

    BEFORE:


    NOW i will add a pic before i lower it again havnt got 1 on my pc yet.
