Garage List
2012 BMW 135i  [5.00]
if your not planning on doing track/auto X, then i can vouch for the ST coilover kit.
The ride is better than stock and more responsive.
Sometimes i wish i spent a little more and got something more aggressive, but cant beat them for the price for a good drop / ride quality.

I heard great things about KW's and ST's. I had Vogtlands on my Audi A4, always enjoyed them, and saw these for $796 shipped:

Love the wheels. Red caps would look good.

Mind if I ask what brand trunk spoiler?

I was just looking at your pics and wheels. Car looks very nice man. I feel like the red caps are too distracting, but hoping to find something to make it look like I HAVE caps. I got my spoiler on eBay

I have ST's. Great coils. Though they're not adjustable except for height, they're very nicely balanced to be decently stiff without too much sacrifice in ride quality. They are definitely equivalent to nicer (and more expensive) V2 or V3 coils from KW, except... you know... always stuck on one setting haha. Just happens to be a very good setting.

I'm loving the wheels, and the car looks great overall. Nice, man!

I don't plan on adjusting the dampening nor do I need to. I just want to have better handling, lowered center of gravity, and minimal suspension travel.

I'm not lowered yet and I never drive with more than a passenger in my car, so I'm not even close to rubbing. Will update you once I install some coilovers.
