FK Coilovers- good or bad

I know people say u get what u pay for, but I'm on a budget and want car to sit nice and low just on top of tyres but with no rubbing, don't mind a firmer ride, but really don't want any rattles and clunking noises coming from them. It's not a 500hp M3 so I don't need top notch 2000 Bilstins or anything.

Just want some honest opinions on FK quality and products.

Cheers Davie

poor especially in comparison to the stock M Sport set up. If you are on a budget stick to AP's, BC racing or Weitech.

D2 coilovers I hear are great entry ones Davie and not too dear either. Think you can get them for about 400-500 for E90's

If all you want is a lowered car and are on a budget, why not just get new lowered springs? You don't need fancy coilovers just to get that sexy lowered look.

Agreed. The quality of coilovers that cheap will probably be worse than the standard setup. If you're prepared to stretch to KW V2 or something similar, that's where you'd get an improvement.
