I'm thinking that Dinan is probably the best, but I can get a good price on a Tokico kit with adjustable shocks for my 1994 318is . Has anyone had any experience with this kit and how does it rate against all the rest; Dinan, H&R, Eibach, etc.?

Doesn't Dinan just use Koni shocks?

my cousin wanted to save some money by putting tokicos on his E30.... he's had to replace the rears numerous times in the past year.... they've honored the warranty everytime for failing shocks, but it seems like quite a hassle

I had tokico blues on my e30 from the PO, blew out the right front strut, just installed Bilstein Sports, like night and day, the ride firmed up quite a bit and feels planted and solid, stay away from Tokicos.

Thanks for the input everyone. I was also considering the Bilstein BTS component system and it looks like I may go that way. The kit isn't that much more expensive, maybe $150.00 more than the Tokico. I always thought Tokico was a quality product, go figure. Anyway, I've learned from experience that a quality lowering kit is worth the money.
