if you want coilovers, i would go with the KW or Bilstein. the H&R is very unconfortable to drive.

I say Bilstein for monotube shocks, but many prefer the twin tube...
CSL replicas are now CSL counterfeits. Jesus saves, like Valentine1.

Couldn't be happier the solid dampening of my Bilstein shocks....along with my Eibach Prokit I have a level of control and feedback I've not every felt before.

If you by a complete set from Bilstein it’s actually supplied with H&R springs. I’ve just installed a Bilstein B12 set on my E90 330d and I’m not that happy with it. The car is too low and the springs rear is too soft. The dampers on the other hand are excellent. In a couple of weeks I’ll change to Eibach springs instead. By the way the H&R sway bars are outstanding.

Check out the new Bilstein PSS10 coilovers. There also is a cockpit adjustable system coming out soon.
