yep ur right, I have to agree with you upon labour.
If eibach pro kit gives the look I guess I won't bother with FSD.

its more about its look than performance for me

how much is it to get a set of springs installed? where do u guys normally go?
Cheers.

New Bilstein PSS9 ride control

exerpt from Bilstein's website:

The BILSTEIN B16 ridecontrol® gives the ambitious motorist the opportunity to adapt the vehicle setting to the motoring conditions prevailing during the ride. In fractions of a second, the controller processes the signal and passes the information to the BILSTEIN shock absorbers build in the leading mono-tube/inverted technology.

In the comfort oriented "Normal" mode, the suspension discreetly dampens all the bumps in the road. The setting in the "Sports" mode is significantly firmer and gives the driver the chance to drive the car much more dynamically right to the limits, while at the same time enjoying high performance reserves.

Product advantages at a glance:

• BILSTEIN mono-tube/inverted technology
• Setting selected at the instrument panel
• High driving dynamics and perfect comfort
• Developed in road trials
• Harmonious sporty look
• Threaded chassis with registered adjustment range
• German TÜV certificate

Most of these LEDs are new products from PIAA. They are mostly out-of-stock in Japan as well. If these products are to be available in HK, it will be months before it gets here (....or maybe never .....just like the other nice stuff from PIAA)

Body care for sapphire black

I'm getting my sapphire black E93 in two months but I am quite worried about creating scratches on it from washing. What is the best way of doing it (if I don't want to wash it by myself). Has anybody used the "Glare" service before. They claim their coating on the car can last 18 months and during that period we need to wash the car with fresh water only.

Hi there, you can PM our member 2020 to ask him. He got Glare coating done on his AW E90.

However, I will suggest to put a few layers of Zaino Clear Seal on it as soon as you receive the car.....however, it is quite difficult to get a hold of Zaino stuff in HK.

The exact name is called the Zaino Clear Seal (or Z-CS in their catalog). If you want to try Zaino stuff, maybe you should try their Triplet pack....which included the Z-CS

H&R Sports on a 320i

Hi HK members,

Sorry to hijack your thread, but I know they have the 320i in asia and was wondering if anyone in the HK forum has put H&R Sports springs in their 320i??

What i need to know is whether the American spec product number #50490 will fit in my 320i e90. people around here tell me to order the euro-spec product number #29187-1 (but i think this is the same thing, just heaps more expensive!!!)

anyway, any help would be much appreciated!

cheers

Thanks Chili, I used them before on another BMW about 1.5 yrs ago, but only found them to be 'so-so' in terms of attention to detail. (Quite a number of bubbles that didn't go away...)

Worth a second chance? Any other places to consider?

Thanks.
