I just picked up The UUC Stage 4 setup it includes 1.5 lower srings matched to Sachs dampers for a street/track day setup. I wanted a setup that was designed and matched to work together. It also included the UUC Sway Bavarian adjustable bars. I researched alot and found that alot of the dampers are not matched to the spring rates. They are designed to work in a wide range of spring rates. If you do get some make sure the damping rates are matched to the springs. I have spent alot of time racing motorcycles and messing with suspensions on them so I know how critical the two are.I am installing them next week. I'm working on the Brakes right now with full 4 wheel drilled rotors and Teflon/Stainless brake hoses.

I was heading in that direction originally . I have found that once you get the ride hight and damping set to where you like it it usually stay at that position. Most people have no idea of what the adjustments accomplish anyway.
Unless you do track days or race at alot of different locations, your just paying for cool factor and bragging rights.

buuhh99,,, why do you have a late model m3 avitar and your reide is a 95 325 ?
it's a little missleading.
