Hey man,

There are lots to choice from, I've been trying to find one myself and it's not easy..
Once I found one, they don't fit my wheels so back to square one

All the e9x m3 will fit.

Best to start is decide,

Budget you wanting to spend?
What you want them for, street or track or both?
Uk or non uk stockist for rebuild reason and easy support?
then start your search man

If your running stock rims then I think best to go for KW's

If budget allows kw clubsport 3way

After posting this I got a call from a company in uk called r tec and had contacted kw in Germany and a price of £1180 for v1 and £1870 for v3 I would only have kw I always have on my other cars, they said would take 20 days to comes, just seeing if can get other prices for comparison, what do you mean by didtnt fit on the back?

You can also get clubsport 2 way around 2.1k and clubsport 3 way around 3.2k from kw. The 2-ways are really track orientated but are loved by most and the 3-way sound even more amazing, for track also but you can set them up to suit road driving. However due to the amount of adjustability, am guessing it could take ages to set up till your happy.

The clubsports have a helper spring and You lose inner clearance, I have 10*18 +25 wheels and due to the size of wheel, I have lost around 18mm inner clearance so they won't fit without rubbing issues unless I fit spacers which I don't want too or they have a spring conversion that helps but am not sure it will definetly cure it.
If your staying stock wheels then this shouldn't be a problem for you if you go for the clubsport range.

I have found some TC-Kline that are ment to be good but waiting to confirm a few things.

Hope that helps with our search.

Sweet, but are there rebuild times not really short?

Is this going on a street or track car?

Rebuild time is every 2 years. Car is my DD but will see track as well. It's overkill I know, but u only live once.

On a side note, Nitron makes a street friendly unit as well.
