Question question about suspension

I have a 328IS with the "M package" and i want to change my suspension. The car is my daylie driver and i want to do a little track with it .

I was looking for some PSS9 but it is too expensive. I was thinking the H&R cup kit sport but i don't know if the quality is there. Perhaps another one, i really don't know .

What do you have and do you like it ?

I'd get the PSS9 kit just for daily use.

CORRECTION: I am getting the PSS9 kit just for daily use.

don't! FK is crap.... from what I've heard anyway. I know for a fact that their e36 taillights are pure garbage... with suspention, you generally get what you pay for. Atleast go with a reputable company...

I hear that's a frequent setup a lot of people get, if they don't go coilovers. Reason I want coilovers is 'cause I'll inevitably have to drive my baby in the winter for a year or two.

A lot of people have this setup and I have only heard good things about it.

If I were going with off the shelf Bilsteins I wouldn't go any lower than H&R Sport, you'll probably experience some bottoming out as the drop is too aggressive for the valving of the Bilstein Sports.

Have you looked into the Bilstein BTS kit? It's a moderate drop similar to H&R Sport and fully matched from Bilstein for your E36.

Whatever you do, go with a MATCHED suspension kit. Don't randomly pair shocks and springs.
