E30 on bc coilover suspension

In research for my suspension, read the thread/saw this setup.
My mouth a little.

BC coilovers are the same rebranded and repainted coilovers that CXracing, ksport, Yellow DPS, Megan, etc. except they are marked up a shit ton. Why not just buy Ground Controls and koni adjustables?

There great coilovers. when you order them though just ask for the shorter springs so you can slam the car if you want. I personally love mine, im running 12k/14k and DDing the car. its a bit hard i guess but i really dont notice it that much.

I had similar spring rates with megans on a different car but similar weight. After a while it stopped being fun to drive anywhere because it was so rough. If they are that stiff your just Upsetting the car, those rates are for a smooth race track.

I absolutely love mine. Keep in mind there are 3 lengths of springs, 200mm 180mm and 160mm. I have clearance issues with 16x9s up front. 160mm springs cured that. I have 550f and 675r rates and it rides great.
