G-R-P coilover kits ?????

Found some REALLY inexpensive coilovers for e39's. They're made in Germany , but I realize just because it was made in Germany doesn't make it great....just look at Nazi concentration camps. They we're made in Germany and were most definitely NOT great lol. Seriously, I know suspension is not the place to save money or "skimp", but this is the reason I'm asking. If anyone has personal knowledge of these please take the time to give me a brief discription of how they were overall. Were you satisfied with their performance? I'm a firm believer in "you get whatcha pay for", but at this price I figured it was worth researching. Thanks !
