Thumbs up AW E90 M3 on Rays Volk Racing TE37TTE in Japan!

So here we go, 2 months into BMW ownership and this part is finally done!
I couldn't be happier at how it turned out.

Here is my blog post:

All sizes, info, and some more pics are in the link!

Impression: So far I haven't seen a single review on the Bilstein B12, so it was a sort of experiment, which I think turned out great. My car did not have EDC, so comparison is really straight forward: The car became a lot more comfortable and smooth, while steering response and turn in improved significantly. I do not notice any significant body roll at corners, but at 100mph steering felt a bit lighter (may need to look into front splitters for this)

Tires are Continental Extreme Contact DW, which improved comfort even further. I haven't noticed any vagueness in steering (probably because of Bilstein coils working their magic and alignment done to perfection)


Here are some photos:

Yeah, I am very happy with the outcome. Rides great too. Highly recommend the B12 to anyone who want to have good suspension setup on the cheap.
