New Koni External Adjustable Rear shocks for your 128i and 135i

KONI Sport shock absorbers were developed for sporting drivers by focusing on exceptional road holding and handling properties, combined with an acceptable level of comfort.

The most economical way to get high-performance shocks on your BMW. These KONI single-adjustable shocks allow you to quickly adjust your rebound without removing from the car. The single adjustable struts are suitable for street and track days.

External adjustment located at the top of the shock shaft allowing adjustment without removing the rear shocks.

Shorter body for added compression travel on lowered cars.

Includes: Koni bumpstops and mounting hardware.

For more information and how to order:

Found out it's for 135i also! Didn't read carefully on the headline.

It says in Harold's post: adjust rebound dampening w/o removing shock from car; includes Koni bumpstops. Other than that, it's the same dampener as the Koni yellow sports.

These look to be the "custom valved" Koni's that Dinan offers. I have them and they have the same adjustment knob on the top of rear shocks (and the front struts).

Ya how is this new? I've had my Dinan shocks about a year now and they are adjustable at the top as well. They are yellow, but who knows what the real difference is between the shocks off the shelf, what Dinan sells as their own valving or TC's spec'd shocks. Either way you still have to get to the shock top to adjust, but at least you don't have to pull them and compress them anymore!

This new rear damper is exclusive to TCKline Racing with much more aggressive rebound valving than off of the shelf standard adjustable or the Dinan Koni Yellows.

AND

These are short body as well for additional compression travel.

Yes.
is the adjustment range shifted/expanded compared with the yellow, or do they have the same range of adjustment, just now external?

Koni uses sweeps or turns on the rebound adjustment, about 2 1/4 sweeps.
