http://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-33...9-540i-m5.aspx

and

http://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-43...uspension.aspx

leaning more toward an adjustable system for raising in the winter, lowering in summer

also.....

i was reading something on bimmerforum or the m5forum and came across a thread about these
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/JOM-Suspensio...#ht_1529wt_962

people were saying for the price they are pretty decent all things considered. The quality is not super but they supposedly work well enough for that price range and they hold up.

Is it wrong that I want to punch you?
The only red paint should ever be on the calipers, or if u want top do a time attack wheel or something.
Although, if agressive enough, red spoiler, red mirrors, red wheels, red kidneys can be made to look good. But it is hard to pull that look off.

Momax, I would first define "best". Assuming you are looking for the best street application?

BC coils sold at stancefactory are one of the top, cost effective options available for our cars.
