E36 - TRM Coilovers

Used coilovers, used for one year and about 15,000 km. Recommended rates (670f/895r) by TRM. These things are stiff but the grip is simply phenomenal. Bump and rebound dampening tied to one knob, rear adjuster is on the bottom so no need to modify trunk liner or remove shocks to adjust.

Still on my car and accumulating about 250km a week (not a daily driver). More info available from TRM website:

See link here for info and pics

Bump/rebound adjustable; tied to one knob.
Front struts are height and preload adjustable.
Includes front camber plates.
Rear damper is height adjustable and allows preloading of the rear spring.
Rear springs located in the stock spring location and includes a height adjuster.
Includes one set of springs with 5 rates to choose from in lb/in.
Includes RSMs.
The kit comes with adjustment wrenchs.
Fits all E36s except 318ti.

Designed for the track day enthusiast in mind, TRM coilovers offer track proven performance without the common compromises. The damping curves are designed for the US tracks which aren’t quite as smooth as our European counterparts. The streetable track car is a difficult target to hit, but with the right damping and proper rates, smooth isn’t a problem. The 8 selectable damping rates offer the proper ratio of bump to rebound damping for a wide range of conditions. The single adjustment handling both makes finding the right setting significantly easier, especially for anyone new to vehicle setup. TRM offers setup support as well as track side support to help you get the most out of your vehicle and suspension.

Recommended rates are 670 front and 895 rear.
I paid $1650 + shipping + duties. Asking $1400 CAD. Installation can be arranged, if required. Includes front swaybar links, both wrenches. Minor surface rust on rear adjusters and some hardware, nothing serious just one winter's worth of occasional exposure. As they are installed on car, you can test drive for yourself, these things just work.
