I agree. We have the V3s installed on our M3 and have been very pleased wit the results.

The OP can see some pictures of the installation on our journal thread here: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=150287

You could go TC-Kline, but I haven't seen anyone here who's tried them yet.

What are you basing this off of? TC-Kline is not really usually recommended as a street setup.

The B16 PSS10's SEEM to be available in Germany but Bilstein US has yet to import them - and when I called, they literally had no information whatsoever about it.

I'd say get the KW's,

ACS racing suspension

How about the ACS set up? 20 position dampening adjustable.

TC-Kline has a couple set-ups for our cars that should work fine on the road, and they're priced competitively.

My pet peeve, professionals who use the word dampening in place of the proper word damping to describe the velocity dependent shock force...

Sorry Frank, couldn't resist...

Same as the ebay posting shows: Bilstein part #: GM5-E570
Threaded Suspension (height adjustable), Mechanically adjustable shock strength, Mounted Adjustable
Gas Pressure, For vehicles without electronic suspension control, Conditions see certificates
Fitting Position Front Axle, Lowering 10-35 mm, To axle load 1020 kg
Fitting Position Rear Axle, Lowering 20-35 mm, To axle load 1190 kg

The link directly to the catalog for me didn't work, try http://www.bilstein.de/cms_website/e...cts/Catalogue/ and click on the Brit flag.
