Just a quick question about the suspension. I just received my Bc Coilover set up as well, very stoked! But mine says that it is for the z3 on the struts..while on the box someone hand wrote 318ti. Did yours say that it was for the z3 as well?

Did you reinforce the top rear shock mounts before installing this kit?

One year on my set now and I'm still quite pleased. The rear springs are rusting some where paint has flaked off, but otherwise every thread, nut, and bolt is free and there's no drop in performance otherwise.
Mine are simply labeled E36 318 front and E30 rear...which is exactly what they are. Don't worry about labeling. BC is a reputable company.

Hello I'm from Ukraine. In our country, little information about the compatibility of coilovers BC Racing on BMW E36 325tds.
Most about the manufacturer BC Racing in my country information can be found on this website BC Racing.
Please tell me what problems may occur when I install these coilovers on my car?

Thanks for the review Jiggerjosh. How are the BCs holding up lately?

I just got my BC setup for my swap did the 7k fr 10kr M3 housings in front. I dont want to take out my spring pads or remove adjusters and the ride height is not much lower than factory. And if taking out spring pads is what they say to do then why dont they fit better on trailing arm and body and supply something to keep them from moving around and makeing noise. 10k rear springs need to be 5.5 inches instead of 6 not much difference in coil bind. The price is great but as nice as they are was thinking rear fittment and height adjustment would be better maybe someone can chime in on this still waiting to hear back from scott cant get thru on the phone. My other option is to buy some springs from TCklein they have the shorter springs but they are 9k.
