What suspension for my e92 335xi 08'???

Watsup guys, I'm looking for some coilovers for my e92 335xi 08'. I was thinking about some KW V1 cause I've heard there good but i'm lookin for any reccomendations or suggestions. I'm looking for a good price but still some good coils. (biggest bang for my buck).

Thanks,

Billy

There has been many posts talking about chirping that occurs with the V1s--the V3s are supposed to be much better. Alternatively you can go with the Bilstein B8s and Eibach Springs.

Would the Bilstein B8s and Eibach Springs be a good a durable set up, because I was lookin for about 1.8 drop. If they are good do you mind posting some links. thanks

Other way around. The some V3s chirp. V1s haven't had this problem (or at least haven't been documented).

KW V1 will do a great job as a replacement suspension. They have a great warranty as well.

Do some research in the suspension section of the forum. Lots of great info there.

v1 are $1300 from the vendors. The bilstein shocks and springs are a few hundred cheaper. v3 are 2k. You dont have any other options.
