I see you have a Ci. If you want to slam your car and wheels are cover I would recommand you FK because KW can't slam like that on Ci or as much. FK is not much of a difference with KW just the brand. I am not sure about PSS9 so I can't comment on that but I know H&R make PSS9 as far as I know.

Just my .02 cent

E46 guys,

I can get Tein coilovers at my work. If you are interested the links below will give you all the information. Also if you do a group buy I can probably get you guys a good price.

L8R,
Dave

ACTUALLY you have it slightly backwards.

Bilstein used to make the dampeners for H&R coilovers

I got the H&R coilovers, and absolutely love them. Yes, bilsteins make the struts for the setup.

I'm on PSS9's and I can safely say that their ease of adjustment is what sold me on them. 5min tops to adjust damping at all 4 corners....

They might not go as low as FK or KW but you do want to keep some suspension travel don't you?

I did get them for $1400 CDN shipped from the US including taxes and shipping.

The rears are almost at the lowest setting but the fronts have another inch or so of drop.

I got them from RennSport in the US. Very good guys to buy from and they also put a very low declaired value so that customs and taxes on them were very low. The Canadian dollar is also high so the exchange rate was favourable.

See if there will be any group buys on Fanatics....

Also, try getting a hold of Ground Control, they have a few Koni based coilovers. You can spec how stiff you want the ride, they'll match the shock valving to the spring rate, and can order shorter springs if you really want to drop your ride.

My next coilovers will definately be a Ground Control Track/School setup. They're $1200US for the e36 setup, the e46 set shouldn't be too far off. Give them a call.

The Ground Control setup is just a lot more customized. You tell the guys what you want to do, how you plan on driving your car, and how low you want it and they'll set you up right.

I don't know if Teutonic does installs, I thought they were only mail order.
