Just a suggestion but if you're just a regular city driver and bearly even see the track, I don't see any point in getting the Bilisteins coilovers with the dampening adjusters. You'd only be wasting your money and probbaly will seldom play with those adjusters.

ya im never going to use the dampening adjusters i dont track so that is pointless
even though it is cheaper i am pretty sure i still want my car completely done by acs so thats another reason
but i will regret it down the line when i have to buy them rims
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

My thought exactly, and jon knows me TOO well, i can't stress enough how GOOD the PSS9's are by far the BEST money i ever spent on my car, but keep in mind i track my car as much as i can so those adjustable shocks are a MUST for me!
But like stated above, for everyday driving just get the regular ones, OR if you DO winter store your car, then might be a better idea just to get shocks and springs, i drive my car in the winter so i wanted to be able to raise it come winter time!

If the non-adjustable dampening ones are $400USD less that still makes a difference some people. I could spend it on one weekends worth of the BMWCC driver training plus the extra on gasoline and oil .

or I could get a Dinan CAI for that FANCY carbon intake tube

Yeh,

That is the point. $400usd less and they are fully adjustable. I not sure who makes the coilovers for ACS but I am sure that ACS buys them from someone and slaps on their name. Just like how OZ makes wheels for Hamann...

ACS body mods are another story...

Hey Todd, go with the H and R coilovers. You have a perfect example of how amazing they are... look at Bliss' car!

H&R's are great coilovers but they are harsh in day to day driving...

Check out all the threads on E46Fanatics.

They do go very low though.
