KSport 2-way coilovers?

Part Number CBM090-P2

Any first hand experience with them?

Looks like the lowest cost 2way I can find. I'd like something with more than average adjustability so I can confuse myself even more.

Well, it's a LOT for the money. I'm a little skeptical of the quality

I looked for reviews, can't find anybody on these for the e82

I messed around with low tier Coilovers. Neo Motorsports to be exact. They sponsored me, and gave me the coils for free. I couldnít get rid of those things fast enough.

Lesson learned, donít mess around with budget coils. Ruining the car isnít worth looking cool for Likes on Instagram. Thereís nothing positive that comes from the budget option.

Do it right, or donít do it at all. Spending $600 to ruin a $8000 car isnít worth it.

odds are, these companies are in it to make a quick buck. Seems that the general consensus for people who want budget optioned coilovers are just looking to get a lower ride height.

So these companies don't even bother with "tuning" them. They just adapt the mounts and use the same spring rates and call it a day.

I ended up giving it away for free on the used market.
