Looking for coilovers and a headlight retrofit because these halogens are horrible...
Might as well bolt in that cell phone mount

thanks so much for the info

Glad someone rescued this one, I'm glad it was on the other coast otherwise I might have pulled the trigger.

Just the 3IM and software is where your bang for the buck is. 90% of the power gains come from software + 3IM + headers. The rest is marginal.

Also, don't forget the CDV delete if it hasn't been taken care of already. I look forward to seeing your build! The 219's will look great.

Only downside to ST coilovers are that they are not Stainless steel like the KW brand. If you are not in the Midwest or a salted winter are, then ST is okay. Just something to think about.

I have ST coils + Dinan camber plates on my e91. I'd go a different route if I wasn't in a super dry climate, i.e. New York.

No, from the research I've done. Not many come with camber plates besides KW Clubsports.

I live in NYC with salted roads... unless I get them painted to prevent rust. Might be an option.

You ought to also consider TCKline suspension / coilovers, depending on your economics and performance goals.

TCK is based on Koni sport dampers with shortened bodies and valves matched to the springs.

TCK will be overkill if the goal is simply to slam. It's also one of the few / only options for the xDrive platform. On the other hand, TCK works well on the track without killing street comfort, unlike KW. I had the TCK SA coilovers on the last car. They just work.

I run DAs on my E46. E91 will be mostly a DD and don't want to break the bank.
