Anyone on here using coilovers?
If so, what kind are you using, and how do you like them.
Any suggestions on which brand to go with.

Also, how involved is teh installation?


fyi, they are for a 2003 540i

running Bilstein PSS9's on my M5. I honestly haven't played around with the stiffness settings too much, but the ride is very comfortable, and the car is pretty slammed.

Front installation is easy, about 1/2 hr per side.

Rear installation is a PITA! Took me and Bliss about 5 hours to figure out how to do them. The rear requires two people to help. The front can be done by yourself.
