i've only used tokico blues once- on my current VW- but they've been there with eibach springs for almost 3 years and are still stiff enough to keep that car cornering flat without a front anti-roll bar... and this includes a couple of rally-style 50-60mph excursions on unpaved roads.

not trying to argue with anyone, but the one time i blew $700 on koni adjustables they were soft after a few weeks w/ H&R race springs, and kept going soft again after re-adjusting them.

at half the price and longevity expressed in "years" rather than "months", i'm a tokico fan now...

*shrug* mebbe our bimmers dun like the blues, i dunno, but i'm going with GCs and illuminas when i can afford it- probably gonna run the $300 spax spring/shock setup till then. those supposedly have their reliability issues as well, but i've seen people buy them and keep them... i say you might as well pick up matching blues for the front, they're cheap and you've paid less than the cost of a set of new springs so far...
