Bilstein shocks, struts & H&R springs

Wanted to share my new suspension!

I did quite a bit of research and deep thinking before I made the purchase, I hope this makes it a bit easier for someone thinking about changing suspensions!

Yes its quite a bit stiffer, you can really feel the road, I do think I sacrificed a bit of comfort, I believe upgrading the seats would off set this though!

The car really hugs the road or grips it, turning is much better, still getting used to it, I believe I can toss the car around quite a bit more if you will!

I would say the car is much more fun to drive and I really feel like I made a good choice!

I would recommend the Bilstein sport shocks and struts with the H&R springs!

One thing to consider is spacers, I wish my installer would have suggested this before hand, allowing the tires to come out just a hair from the wheel well would be a improved look versus being tucked all the way back inside the well!

I bought mine with this setup on it... I really like it. The car I sold to buy it had poly bushings and a nice setup, so I am glad I don't have to miss the sporty suspension. Cheers.

On my 08 335 coupe I went with the Bilstein Sport struts and shocks and the Dinan springs because Steve's springs didn't have quite as severe a drop to them. Also the Dinan sway bars. I really like the setup and really didn't think the ride suffered that bad.
