That is in my e36 M3. The only after market suspension I've owned that I really liked was the Dinan setup in my 335i, which was incredible. My ZCP M3 has a very similar feel in soft, and is a little stiffer in Sport, perfect adjustability and no need to change.

A lot of people underestimate how important suspension travel is.
Well said. I keep thinking about going the Dinan route but then i look at my car and it looks good. Then i drive my car and it feels good. I dont want to mess anything up. My old E36 I swapped out the springs and after a two years they car was much lower and mushy. The springs already started sagging. I bought SPAX coils and struts. It was horrible, I was slamming the car on speed bumps. Im sure the Dinan kit is great and im still undecided but its hard to mess with a ride this smooth and responsive.
