    i got the groundcontrol kit its pretty good, You also get endlinks,camber plates, m3 lower control arms(option) and your spring(eibach ers) rates of choice. Plus a lifetime warranty. The customer service is also great. JRZ has excellent dampers also. I would get a custom built kit over the usual kw v series ie dampers to match spring rates. Makes the ride alot smoother.

    It depends what your needs are and what price you're willing to justify to meet those needs.

    How much adjustability do you want? If you don't see yourself changing heights or anything, save some money on a cup kit or spring/strut combo.

    What is the weather like near you? Some sets aren't weather proof so salt in the winter will eat away at them over time.

    What is your price point? KW's are warranted for life but their bargain brand of ST are basically the same components for about 75% of the cost of the name brand (don't think they carry the warranty though).

    I've personally owned Bilsteins which were amazing, and some KW's now which are also great.

    We are an authorized dealer for BC suspension and Wheels and sell tons of their coilover systems.They are very comparable to Kw V2's but at a much lower price. If you need any assistance please let me know.

    You think they're comparable to KW's? Really?

    In options yes. Obviously you do get what you pay for but for street applications the bc's will hold their own just fine against the Kw.

    With a properly setup bc suspension the car will feel 100x better than stock.

    Have you ever rode in a car equipped a Jrz suspension? They make kw feel horrible... So like I said you do get what you pay for but since the Op is on a budget the Bc or Kw V2 will fit the bill just fine.

    Thats what I was saying... Get the best suspension you can afford which happens to be the BC.

    Hey bimmer 335, did you get the BCs? What do you think? I am in the market for coilovers, no one here mention ohlins.... I read a great review on another forum. I have a daily driver and lots of city road. Cant slam it to the ground so need to know clearance remains. Thoughts?

    I was gonna recommend koni yellow shocks/swift spring coilover conversion. Can get spring rates/heights tailored to your liking. It doesnt drop all that low so you can maintain ground clearance and still have a sporty ride. I think they start around $13-1400 and go up from there.

    I would choose JRZs after that, but a basic setup complete runs like $4500 Click here to enlarge

    Hey there Andrew,

    Im glad to see someone on the forums representing BC Racing coilovers. My friends have been running them on Evos/STIs for a long time with no issue and i feel they ride amazing.

    Ill probably be picking up a set from a local shop for a great price, but if you can beat it, id much rather support one of my favorite tuners (AA). Please, PM me your best offer on BC Racing coilovers for an E92 (2007).

    Thanks mate!

    If you don't need height adjustment, try a Bilstein B12 prokit(B8 + eibach springs) or Koni + springs of your choice.
    If you MUST have height adjustment, try the Bilstein B14 PSS or the KW v1 (SpeedTech I believe is the same product although it differs in the body materials)
