Default Bavauto Coilovers?

Has anyone had any experiences with this set up? Bilstien BTS suspension package...and do ground controls adjust the ride height?

IIRC the bavauto kit only adjusts in front, not backs. Check DDM I think they moved forward and are shipping the ti coilovers.

If you buy coilovers that are only front height adjustable you can get a rear adjuster from a few different companies if you have to have rear adjustability.

What about the performance of these units? I'd rather shell out some a little more money now then more later if these aren't that great...

The BTS kit is not a coil over kit.

I would stick with the tried and true companies for coil overs. Best way to do this... head out to your local autoX and ask some of the faster guys what suspension they run.

I run Ground Control on the wagon and will probably do the same on Project 330ti. I hear and see great things out of TC Klein's stuff too.

The PSS and PSS9 kits are very much a street system. The springs are progressive rate, but they are both great compromise kits.

I did not even know bavauto had their own coilovers...

I have the BTS kit on Project 330ti... I sell the BTS kit as well. It is a good kit, more stiff than stock sport suspension but it is still very soft. It does not lower that much.
