I got them put on today and I'll post some pics once I find the usb link for my camera. But any ways, they are awesome springs. The ride quality is like stock, but the handling repsonse is sooooooo much quicker. I've not yet been able to really test the springs though.. stupid weather. But I'll be auto-xing with them here in a week and a half. In my opinion they are the best springs for the price Reg $199 US, I got them on sale for $179 US. So pics are on the way as well as areport after their trial by auto-x.

nope, I've got bilstien touring shocks. I know that they aren't made for lowering springs, but the springs weren't part of the original plan. But they should hold up because it's only a 1.25" drop.

No they are not progressive, ie they don't have that first progressive coil as the Stock E36 318i springs have.

Install took around and hour and half. I didn't do the work on my own, but I assisted. The way to take off the front springs can be found in the FAQ section, I did a post about how to change the struts and front springs in there. The back are childsplay, because the strut isn't inside the spring. It's really easy to do the back, all you need is a ratchet.

This is the car with stock size wheels and the springs installed. Forgive the brake dust on the wheels the car had just been to an auto-x.

This is the car before the springs.

I just drove the car about 5 hours today on the highway, and it still rode great!! I almost think it rides better than stock, but has much better response. Still havn't been able to take it to the limit yet though....stupid weather once again.

a little off topic but is' been raining like hell. It's really sucked. Especially with these new springs. And now I'm in Mississippi where there are no good roads to test them. Can't wait for the next auto-x,
