FS: E46 BC racing BR type coilovers

Hey guys/girls

Trying to move my current BC coil setup as I plan on going air-ride. I bought the coils new from the guys at Stance Factory half way through last summer. They were on the car for 3 shows and then I put the car away for the winter. They are absolutely brand new condition as you will see, I would say conservatively they were on the car for 5000km. This is a complete kit with shorter sway bar links, camber plates up front, 30-way adjustable etc. They are extremely good coils, all the reviews back them up.
I am looking for 950 as they are still new in my opinion, and come set up for direct bolt-up and go.

They are currently still on the car so I will try to get some pics up as soon as I can. But they are still absolutely brand new condition and look exactly like what you would get from any shop.

Wow nice sedan. Just look at it! This is why e46 coupe and sedan is so worth keeping for despite the headache, money and time needed to keep her in top shape.

Op im not into lowering but need to ask you. How's the ride on those suspension and how much is the install ...

Thanks EricTsang
money.... definitely
headache.... sometimes, but its worth it

the ride is the best by far that I've had. I have been on eibach springs/stock shocks, Raceland coilovers, and now these. I have been in some cars with other types of coilovers and my advice to anyone would be to spend the money upfront like i didn't do (hence the raceland coils) and go for quality from the start. The ride is firm yes, but also very smooth on the highway and for long hauls. Overall excellent ride for the lowering capability.

as far as installation, I did that myself so I couldn't tell you. I'd say it took me about 5 hours with hand tools/floor jack. but adjusting it to exactly how you want, some would argue is an never-ending obsession.

The pic was taken right after install, since then I have come down another inch maybe. At current height the front jacking point/jack pad is about an inch off the ground (and all worn down).
definitely low capable

How little of a drop can you set it from stock?
I need to drive in the winter.

The shock body itself is shorter than the stock one, which is why it comes with shorter sway bar end links. So even at its highest it will still sit lower than stock. but the whole shock body is threaded so I would think you could go fairly high.
