what the hell is E39 limousine?

looking thru FK's catalogue, and under cars that fit for BMW, it says E39 Limousine w and without EDF.

question what the heck is E39 limousine??? I wasn't aware that E39 would come in long wheelbase or some sort of form, or they are just like to mess people's mind instead calling it a saloon/sedan.

btw, what's the best springs & shocks combo for E39 out there that's for mainly street use.

bunch of wankers they are, could've just called it a saloon/sedan, is it me or I cannot find any cup kit for a E39 online?? the only one I've seen is from Dinan and thats $1400 something US dollas, and I honestly think that's a dumb investment, been thinking may be grab a set of FK Highsport coilover, anyone has experience with them?

how much are you willing to spend, I would never buy the Dinan set, it isn't even made by them, it's like Koni shocks with some other brand springs, I was planning on getting the FK's myself but realize that it's made with shitty material, I heard Bilstien has a nice coilover set, but I'm going with the H&R coilovers myself

how much is the H&R coilover??

the thing I really fear is corrosion on the sleeves, I've seen many even KW coilover with corrosion on the sleeves which made it literally useless, that's why I spent crazy money for my Volvo's coilover.

I personally prefer a cup kit for simplicity, but if a cup kit is same price as a coilover, might as well get coilover.

I'm thinking in the low $1k range.

yeah KW started using another company for their shock tube housing, very shitty quality now, the H&R's are pricey I think they are about $1500 I might be wrong, they came out in the summer

um....... that's bit more than I'm willing to spend, since I gotta consider putting money into other replacement parts.

so there's basically no good cup kit? what about H&R springs? the MSRP is around $370 usd, has anyone use them? and what shocks/struts work well?
