colin1974 is an unknown quantity at this point
I've just found out I need to replace the front shocks on my 1992 320i. As I'm thinking of having it lowered I'm thinking of replacing all four and getting it lowered at the same time.

Any ideas on which shocks are best to use?

Cheers

Bilstein has lifetime warranty. Koni has a limited 3 year warranty. I've had full set of 4 dampers replaced under full warranty from Bilstein. They were very good about it and definitely one of the reasons I would buy from them instead of KONI. Also, KONI's don't handle too well on the street, they are a little too stiff and really bouncy. I used them for 2 months on my car and switched to Bilstein. The only good thing about KONI's are their adjustability. Even on the softest setting, the KONI's were really harsh.

Track - Bilstein SP or KONI SA
Street/track - Bilstein SP
Street - Bilstein SP/HD/TC or Sachs AG/TG/PG
