bilstein b12 sale

Turnermotorsports is having 25% off the b12/eibach pro kits. I want to know if this will be that much of an upgrade in performance handling than my zsp package. I had an STi before with suspension upgrades that handled like it was on rails but it was harsh over railroad tracks and moderate bumps. I don't want a harsh ride in my bimmer, don't want my wife complaining, but more performance and maybe a bit more drop than zsp. I've read tons of threads but I'm still on the fence. Also, does anyone know if or what the differences in the zsp and the bmw performance suspension are or if it's even worth the $1200+ vs an aftermarket setup?

Yep. That sale at Turner is brilliant.

Im really stuck between that great price on B12 and the current sale with Koni FSD and eibach springs.

I dont want a hard ride, just a well dampened on but there's a LOT of conflicting info on these forums about the B12 ride quality....

Anyone with long term B12 experience who may have also ridden in an FSD machine care to comment?

...but then again, I've heard and read nothing but great things about the BMW Performance Suspension as a high performance daily driver that some guys use at the track as well. Better ride, better handling in all aspects (vs. std or ZSP).

Yeah, despite the low cost of the B12. Im leaning towards Pro Kit plus B4-s bilstein as a daily!

Did anyone posting or watching this thread decide on either the BMWP kit or the Bilstein b12?

I currently have an unopened BMW performance kit in my garage but its a lot of $$$. I would like to save the $500 and get the Bilstein B12 if it preserved good daily drivability.

Any thoughts?

Do you have version 2 of the BMW Performance Suspension? What is included in the entire setup? I might be interested in purchasing yours.
Thanks!

It is the V2 kit, but it will not be for sale. If I dont use it, ill just return it to get my money back. You can order your own set from Tischer BMW.

Good luck.
