The coilovers are not stainless steel which is why it is plated. Since they are not stainless use the winzer tekwax to help prevent all the weather it will see. Also for the spring rates the front is 450lbs springs and the rear is 674lbs springs for both e90/92. You can order custom spring rates if you would like though.
