I had BC racing they were pretty good. (taiwan tho best of the cheapy brands)cost 1000.

Fortune Autos are much better, everyone that got them loves them, they are made in the US and rebuildable and revalvable in US also. customer service is top notch... I had a connection to get them on sale right now for %15 off. so insted of $1400 plus shipping you can get them for $1100 shipped... it only lasts 1 week tho ... It's on Zilvia.net. i can shoot you the link..or give you more details if you are interested.
btw: they are known for making coilovers that can go very low without affecting the rebound or ride quality.

this is their website..

Funny you mention those Gabe I actually just found out about those recently.

Here's a good link to read up on suspension before you make the purchase. Let us know which way you go. Best of luck

Hmm never heard of them. I'm not even close to buying suspension though, so that gives me plenty of time to research. After going going to the meet last night, I came back and spent 409 on Downpipes and DCI's. My plan of action is FMIC, Protune, wheels and suspension in that order. After not spending any money on mods for a year I can sense that this car is about to become a money pit lol.

after wheels, nothing changes the look and attitude of a car as much as a good lowering...it's your option which route you wish to go, but know the added power wont be handled well by stockies, (susp and wheels/tire) so almost pointless except for bragging and freeway accelerations..

if you plan on tracking your car at all the usual order is suspension-wheel/tire-then power. also your stock fmic is fine with the tune.. you could worry about changing it out after you go into the meth/upgraded turbos kind of upgrades...
not trying to tell you how to modify your car ..just hoping to help.

FYI.

I was able to pass emissions this weekend without cats or the dp fix installed. I didn't even uninstall my cobb tune. He said one monitor failed but that was fine and it passed, I didn't argue I only went there to fail and get the extension to give me time to get the dp fix installed If anyone wants to know the station I went to shoot me a pm.

Hey all, first time BMW owner here, just picked up a 2011 E92 335i AW M-Sport MN6 w/just under 20k miles over the weekend. I'm a musclecar guy at heart (owned 2 Chevelles and 7 Camaros) but thought I'd try something different so treated myself to an early b-day present. Hope to meet some of you guys at an upcoming cars and coffee James

Thinking about registering my car here, but still not sure since I don't have to worry about emissions. I'll give it a shot, if I dont pass, I'll keep it registered in Florida. Where is it?
