Well, I actually got them installed at Auto Design Haus in Cambridge, MA. I was the 7th 3 series they installed the kit onto. I also HIGHLY recommend Boston Performance Group ( They are very good and knowledgable. So if you're in the NE area, these are two great places. I wouldn't go to //RPM though. They don't seem like they know what they are talking about. They said I should lower the car without an alignment!! They also said.. it's a german car.. double wishbone suspension.. should be no problem. That's when I knew not to take it there. Boston Performance group is very good!

: //S4,

: Thanx for the info. One more question. Where did you get the work done? Independent shop or dealership? Had they done installations on 3 Series before?

: Thanx,

: : Well.. I didn't change the shocks. These are the non-sport shocks. No, I did not get a camber kit. All I did was get the Pro-Kit. Installation was $225 including an alignment. It is important to get the car aligned after lowering it. Springs were $250. Total it came to $475. I have no regrets so far other than it comes really close to speed bumps. Ride is like stock.. maybe a bit stiffer. Overall I'm quite happy with the springs.

: : : I have exact same car and I want to put springs on. I wanted to ask you a couple of questions. Did you change the shocks? Did you add a camber kit? How long did the installation take and how much did it cost?

: : : Thank you for the info!!!
