koni yellow

I'm thinking of lowering my E36 with koni yellow adjustable instead of bilstein.
with the koni yellow there is adjustable perch for stiffness and softness. that the only benefit from koni.
Any Input?

I think the Koni yellows are pretty good, but even at the softess setting it's still pretty stiff, what kind of springs are you planning to use?

who makes the springs? I don't think Koni makes springs, they must be using some other major brand for springs

Ya Koni yellows are nice man, I mean the bilsteins were good on the E30, but the adjustables are the way to go. Got a set on my E36, pain to adjust the backs but once set they are just right.

www.m3motorwerks.com has a good deal on the koni's. I think they are $529US for non ///M E36's and $589US for ///M E36's. Im thinking about grabbing a set in the spring.

Koni Yellows are great shocks/struts! The adjustable dampening is a great feature cuz you can tighten up the rebound on the shock.
