Pulled the trigger yesterday..

..And bought Koni Yellows Sport Strut/Shocks and H&R S2 Sport Springs (i model)

I got the Koni's really cheap..a little less than $615 for front and rear! The Springs I got cheap too..$225 delivered!

Can't wait to get them and install them

You and me both! I don't think anyone here is running that set up yet. I've seen Bilsteins B8 with H&R Sport or Eibach or Konis with H&R and Eibachs but nothing with H&R S2 Sports. I'm hoping that the extra .3 difference between the regular H&R and H&R S2 wont prevent me getting up into my drive way..

Either way, I will post up pics of before and after the drop!

I got them from FastGuys.com.

** Note ** When you order the rear shocks, order the one for the 135i. The 328xi utilizes the same rear shock as the 135i and 335i. Also, Aparently these shocks are quite popular thus are on Back Order till the first of the month. I figured I've been waiting this long, what's another week and a half!

Here's the details...

Koni Shock - Sport Yellow - BMW 135i(2008+), BMW 128i(2008=) Position: Rear 8240-1236SPORT $127.13
Ordered: 2
$254.25

BMW 08-11 3 Series - Sedan/Coupe, Xi AWD Models - Sport (Yellow) Left 8741-1535LSport $180.00
Ordered: 1
$180.00

BMW 08-11 3 Series - Sedan/Coupe, Xi AWD Models - Sport (Yellow) Right 8741-1535RSport $180.00
Ordered: 1
$180.00

I was debating on the two as well but a lot of people's concenus was that the Blistein rode a lot stiffer/harder. I already have that ride quality on my other car and it was cool at first but it's over rated now..at least to me. But then again, those are BC Racing coils... No comparison

Speaking of price, Bilstein Sports are on sale at BavAuto. Great price. Basically $600 flat.

I'm loving it. The ride height is great,..better than before. It feels a lot more stable going through the twits and turns. All I need now is a set of sway bars and endlinks. Does anybody knows if there is a company out there that makes decent endlinks for the e92?
