E93 coilover how to installs

Can't seem to find any 'how to' or diy for fitting e93 coilovers. Fronts I can work out from other e9x threads.

I'm interested in anyone who would like to share their experience with fitting the rears. Which includes working around Parts of the retractable roof mechanism.

Any advice would be appreciated.

There is no easy way of getting to the bolts that hold up the shock at the rear shock mounts....In fact the panels are a BITCH to get out especially the ones that are directly ontop of the shock mounts...You need to take off four side panels and two black plastic supports....The first two are easy towards the back of the trunk, but like I said the ones on the side of the trunk ontop of the shock...PITA beyond belief! Be patient

Notice in the pic to the left there is a black bracket, you need to remove that bracket and the underneath panel on both sides which are the PITA that I speak of! Its such a TIGHT fit that its not even funny! Once those panels are off, the install is pretty much basic to the point...Good luck

It's a bigger PITA than you can even begin to imagine...just pay someone to do it. It only cost me $150 from a reputable shop.
