Anyone with FK Konigsport Coilovers?

I am in the market for buying coilovers. I had FK Konigsport's in my previous car and absolutely loved them!



When I searched, didn't see many reviews for those running on E9x's. Can I hear your thoughts if you have them? Any comparisons with Bilsteins ok KW's?

I guess either one of these, since they both have same shocks, but one is stainless build:

FK SilverLine Plus X Coilovers

or
FK Konigsport Coilovers

Thanks in advance.

Pictured linear springs a big step in the right direction. But, they're essentially Yellows + Eibach Sport springs.

You're better advised to go with Ground Control's Street/School pkg. More $, you get more equipment & function.

Combine that with M3 arms, M3 rear subframe bushings, M3 sways, Megan toe arms; Wavetrac LSD -- an excellent daily driver, leave 'em behind in the twisties.

Thanks for the reply.

Those look like the ultimate set up. Why are linear springs better in this case? I thought progressive springs give a softer ride and handles better..

Softer ride yes - handles better no. Not so soft in the latter half of travel!
