Talking Teaser:Bilstein ride control suspension installed 335i

Its done!!
My impressions to follow soon - 3 more days of driving in the countryside and taking on the beautiful, challenging and infamous Bainskloof mountain pass. But here are the teaser pics:
1. Package arrival
2. Concealing the best toys
3. Favourite radio station

Thanks everyone for the support and interest

I am sending this from the HTC phone that I was "braggingly" showing off in the picture. I am still in a very remote part of the country and driving hard of course. I promise to respond with the review when I am home - 2 more days to go...sorry guys about the delay. I have taken more pics to show soon...

I have that suspension too and i'm very happy with it. In the normal mode thar car is very comfortable and when we change to sport....the cars look amazing at high speed...very, very secure!

It's the best mod that you can do in a E90!

This is an awesome bit of kit. We fitted this to last months cover car on Performance BMW magazine (an E92 335d) and it really gives you the best of both worlds. IN comfort mode it is a lovely cruiser and when you hit the sport button it stiffens up very nicely.

Pics of Bainskloof would be cool; I hope to get back to Capetown with some time on my hands to go exploring/camping some day. Oh yea, and more info on the ride control would be great.

Thanks for the replies and positive feedback

Just to keep the post going here are some more pics. I will submit the review and try to answer all questions. I asked one of my 335i forum buddies to check my "feelings" about the bilstein system by driving the car himself. So hopefully he can chime in as we discuss the system.

Veightkiller your request is my command. I love taking pictures. so here we go.
1. Out with the old (But don't dismiss this statement yet - there is a surprise).
2. In with the new - damn it looks and feels good in the flesh so to speak
3. Best looking springs
4. Bilstein parts
5. More bilstein parts
6. Installed1
7. Installed front
8. Installed rear
