I just recently picked up the PSS kit from bilstein for an E46. So far so good. the PSS, and PSS9 are adjustable in ride height so you can either raise it or slam for the seasons. Apparently its easy to adjust the heightand if you get the PSS9, you can adjust the dampers also.

i was asking the same question. u can run them for some time but eventually u will have to change the shocks, they will wear out faster do to the different spring size.

I used eibach race springs 2 1/4 drop. They were about $300.

(It was on my e46 328ci)

With 2 1/4" drop I didn't have a problem all winter.(on 16" rims that is)
