Talking Just Ordered Koni's!

Finally, the Koni's are OUT! :rocks: The part numbers for the E90 is: Fronts: 8741-1484 LSport, 8741-1484 RSport Rears: 8240-1236 Sport

I should get them sometime next week, I will post pictures when they arrive. In a way, it has been a blessing that i have not had the spings installed yet, this way I can do it right and have my stock springs/dampers ready for reinstall if/when need be!

Danny

You can order Koni's anywhere. I ordered mine from here

I was able to get them for under $650 shipped. Call or write them, ask for Matt.

They are regular sport shocks. If you get the FSD's, it will be cheaper than what I paid.

Are these specifically made for a car lowered a certain amount. I have been told that springs and shocks should be somewhat matched. I have H&R sport springs and want a good matched shock.

Aftermarket dampers are can handle stiffer, lower springs. If your car is lowered more than 1.5 inches or so, I know Koni makes shorter dampers for extremely low cars, but aside from slammed cars, regular aftermarket dampers will do!

Matched means aftemarket spring to aftermarket damper vs. OEM damper.

e.
FSD monitors and automatically adjusts the damper for current road conditions. The sports don't. Kinda like an *active* suspension system. FSD = Frequency Selective Damping.

Installing better dampers will never hurt a car!

I think you have to pay that price for shipping to you? For people here in the states, www.shox.com has them for about $720 shipped in the US, so $760 to you isn't bad!

What kind of springs did you get?

I have got OEM spring. I need to fit Breyton Vision II 20" before and see if the tires would rub the fenders.

If not, then I will go for the spring replacement.
