I have no experience with their kit, but you'll probably need to do some research to make sure that it includes all of the parts you need. I ordered my parts from Crevier (ask for Vaheh) so that I...

Just curious, is the lowering kit made by PShop as well?

If not, what do you have in there, looks pretty low?

Yeah, it was Robin (PUR NRG). You should be able to ping him over at the other place if you want to find out how it was finally resolved.

I was making a general assertion that the H&R springs won't improve handling over the stock sport suspension. However, in your case, this is even more true. You'll see a huge improvement just by...

Make sure you do some research on the H&R's, they are known to have some clearance problems. May require the use of a spacer.

BTW, why do you want coilovers? What are your objectives with the...

Well, the Hartge's are really heavy too. But I agree, the wheels do seem to really complement the e39, and they have a fairly deep lip which adds to the aggressive appearance.

I think the BBS LM is probably one of the best looking wheels out there right now. However, they are in a completely different price category than the SSR's.
