I bought these to get rid of the airmatic. The airmatic just is all over the place on what each corner wants to do and its just not a very inspiring to go for a spirited drive. Car handles much better, steering feels tighter but communicates better and now i have reliability. The bad is that the dampening on the shocks are pretty terrible. If you set it too soft its soft and bouncy and if you set it stiff its stiff and bouncy. Very strange but thats what it exactly does. Also for those who complain about noises coming from the rears. You or your mechanic messed up on the install. The rears need to be pre loaded and no that doesnt mean the car needs to be sitting on the ground and you tighten the suspension. The fronts come pre loaded for obviouse reasons the rears need to be set up properly or else you will get clunks and noises coming from the rears 8-10mm pre load. Look up a video on youtube of a guy working on a G37 and its the same concept of how it needs to be preloaded properly. Ovearll i give it a 4 star, for 1100.00 I wasnt going to expect top of the line coilovers with excellent dampening shocks but for the most part and if you dont hit any major dips or bumps it does really well 90+% of your driving.
Ive had the bc racing br series installed for over a year now. Around 40k miles or so on them. My car is a heavy 5.0 v8 sedan. With the airmatic suspension, it rode smooth but around corners i felt like i was in a grandpa car, every hard corner their was so much body roll even with decent tires. After i installed the coilovers, it was like love at first sight again. Lol. The car looks awesome. Handles amazing. How a true german luxury sport sedan should. I was told by i shop they would charge me around $5,000 to do the coilover conversion to strut masters (who i know are notorious for making ride height even higher) which wasnt a opition for me. I through out the bc racing idea. He chuckled... Saying i will ruin my car. I laughed back and hung up. Ordered the coilovers for 995 and 2 oem w211 e350 rear lower control arms and got to work. The rear suspenion was a bit of a b***h but with basic tools and a couple torx drives its very manageable. I did the whole conversion for $1500. With zero help, zero air tools and no star scanner. I dont have the STOP CAR TO LOW message or anything. It took me about 3 days of 2hrs a day to get the entire job done. But ultimately im extemely pleased even after a year of beating on it and 40k miles still no bouncing or any noises of any sort. You will have a slight movement in the rear over bumps. I think theres a slight amount of play in the rear strut, not the spring. Which im sure could be fixed with a couple washers. If youve thought about it, do it. You wont regret it. Here she is w211 e500. Ps bcracing. I would be willing to do full tear down, how to and advert. If interested please email me.
