KYB shocks w/ Vogtland Springs ?

Fellas, am on stock non-sport suspension on my 328i and came across these on eBay. Read alot about Koni Yellows w/ Eibach ProKit or the Bilsteins B12s w/ Eibach ProKit springs, or the H&R combo, but does anyone have any experience with these - KYB shocks w/ Vogtland springs.

The ride height am looking for is stock sport. These will lower front to 1.4 and rear to 1.2 . What are some thoughts http://www.ebay.com/itm/KYB-4-SHOCKS...d8c8ff&vxp=mtr

I had KYB shocks before when I had my 99 Mitsu Galant, paired with Eibach springs, no complaints. KYB is a popular aftermarket shocks for the JDMs, they are cheap and works just fine.

I never knew they made shocks for Euro cars.

Yep same here, literally just came across them. It's not significant amount from a Koni/Eibach set up, something to consider tho

I am on Koni Yellows and H&R and I am lovin' my setup. I don't see the need to "experiment" the KYB/Vogtland unless you are looking for cheap alternative. But like I always say, when comes to suspension, do it right the first time.

taking a $530 gamble without knowing if dampers and spring rates do actually work together or not...
considering you can buy a used set of koni+eibach or.h&r for about $600,,,and has adjustible dampening...its a no brainer to go.for a better brand

Yea been keeping eyes peeled for Eibach pro-kit, the only thing I don't get, is the difference between shock n struts vs dampeners.. is it the same essentially? What do you think about this kit http://www.bavarianx.com/ProductDeta...2.780&CartID=1 The one think I couldn't pin point is who makes the dampeners, don't think they are Koni, I'd call n confirm before ordering.
