I'm about to bite the bullet and lower the 5. Right now I'm in the research phase. anyone heard of or have these coilovers? My friend has a vendors license and can get me hooked up....

Ksport Kontrol Pro
Ksport Kontrol Pro Fully Adjustable Coilover Kits provide the ultimate in suspension technology for your street or track car. 36 levels of dampening adjustment allow you to fine tune the ride to your handling and comfort needs. The dampening adjusts compression and rebound simultaneously for ease of adjustment. Pillow ball top mounts in the front and rear on some applications allow you to maintain vehicle manufacturer suspension geometry design. The pillow ball top mounts also allow you a more direct feel for solid driver response. Camber adjustability is included on pillow ball top mounts that allow it for the ability to adjust camber from the actual coilover, instead of a separate camber kit.

Most applications utilize an adjustable lower mount, which means you adjust height without losing suspension travel like some other coilover designs do. With the mounts and most pieces of the coilover being designed for 6061 billet aluminum the kit is lightweight, durable, and rust resistant. The steel shock body is electroplated with zinc to resist rust and the elements. The valving of each set is matched to the springs installed for unmatched ride quality and reliability.

The Ksport system uses a Monotube design in which the oil and gas are separated within the cylinder. When compared to twin tube designs the Monotube dissipates heat better, allows finer dampening adjustments, and requires more expensive design process. Aeration and cavatation are a lot less common in a Monotube design, which results in a better ride.

The Ksport Kontrol Pro Coilover kit has been designed with professional road racing in mind offering extremely high value and performance.

Key Features:

36-way adjustable dampening
Made from high quality 6061 Aluminum with T6 for increased hardness
Compression/Rebound adjustable
Adjustable spring perch for height adjustment
Adjustable body allowing maximum suspension travel
Pillow Ball Top Mount w/ adjustable camber (not available for some models)

E39
(520,523,525,528) 97-03 CBM08-KP $1400 retail 10/560 7/392 Incl. Front Pillow Ball Mount & Rear Top Mount

I actually don't have any experience with that brand although their product looks interesting.

H&R, Eibach and of course Bilstein are among the popular coilover suppliers for BMW applications.

I personally have PSS9s on my 01 325i and I am extremely happy with its performance, ease of adjustability and ride quality. IMO Bilstein provides the best mix between performance and comfort. I can transform my car from autox junky to performance tuned daily driver in a matter of 5 minutes by twisting the dials to preset amounts on each shock. It truly is a revolutionary coilover system, no need to remove the shocks etc...

If you have any questions about H&R, Eibach or Bilstein, don't hesitate to email ([email protected]) or call in (1.888.JLEVISW).

If you can get a deal on it, I would get it...

Those are fully adjustable compression and rebound which means you can pretty much make your car ride differently in many ways...

I don't know about the brand or their quality, but they should be better than getting a similar priced kit which isn't compression adjustable where you might be stuck with a pretty stiff dampening setting, and only be able to change rebound, and height. rebound effects the ride a lot too, that's from experiencel, but i bet changing the compression can completely alter the feel the of the car.

good ideas on deciding getting coilovers for your 528i... i have same car with coilovers, and it rides and feels like m3, but slightly more luxury

There's a KSport Kontrol coilovers group buy for a Toyota (street price about 995), and they go for around 750 shipped.

On the website, the corolla's coilovers MSRP $1300 is just $100 less than the E39 application.

Are there similar deals? They seems like a reputable maker.

Saw some pretty poor and devastating reviews on these "koilovers" at m3forum.

If you are interested, they can be gotten for around 800 shipped at a group buy I know of.. I'll pass, but PM me if you are seriously interested.
