I've decided to pull the trigger on TCK coilovers but am having a hard time choosing which one and with what options. I've searched around and would appreciate your input. The car will mainly be daily driven with a few track days a year. It looks like 400#f/600#r will be a good spring rate. Are there any major noticeable benefits to justify the cost of going for the DA over SA setup? What advantages are there in upgrading to Swift springs? Vorschlag or TCK Camber Plates?

Thanks in advance for your help

Harold came highly recommended from the other forums so I gave him a call regarding the TCK DA's as well for my M3, he seems very knowledgeable on this chassis and knows his stuff.

I am leaning towards 400 front and 700 rear myself on the TCKR DA's. However, after learning Ohlins also offers a kit for the M3, and in a monotube design, I will likely change my mind since I loved them so much from my motor bike days.
