Anyone have a Koni Yellow Coilover Conversion?

I've been running Koni yellows + stock M-sport springs on my 128i for the past several years, but now I'm looking to upgrade the suspension.

I see that there is a coilover conversion for the Konis, was wondering if anyone's used it and had any thoughts (quality, springs used, install problems) vs going for a typical coilover kit? I know that Dinan and TCKline are using Konis with custom valving, so it seems like a good place to start?

Thanks!

No but I have a set of TCK SA front dampers springs and top hat or camber plate which is as good as you're gonna get on the Koni shock.

Also have the height adjusters and rear springs. Don't ask about the rear damper, but can use the standard konis there or get new ones.

Just a simple plug for good parts.
