Its funny that you say this because I searched and talk to allot of venders and they all said that this B12 kit has not been manufactured, they say that Bilstein was "thinking" of producing this product but never has, better to save a little and purchase a set of coilovers IMO

After some reflection, I finally will order the Bilstein B8 damper in order to have the B12 kit. That won't destroy my actual dampers and I will have a better ride than the Performance chassis

In addition, I have the parameters to apply to the car to have the same geometry parameters as the BMW Perf' suspension

What do you guy think about that and about my decision ?

I like it. Im going with the B12 as well once it is more available to the States. Let us know how the feel is as those of us across the pond gear up for the purchase decision/install!
