Has anyone tried any of the combinations of springs/shocks mentioned a couple months ago. I know MicahO is using bmw/boge up front, but has anyone tried bmw/bilstien all the way around. Just trying to get some feed back before I'm stuck with it. If anyone has some input please desribe the rides pro's and con's. By the way, anyone have good choice for a high performance all season tire(Z-rated). I was thinking about the dunlop sp 5000, but didn't know if they were maybe to soft for the corners. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Drew

I'm using sport suspension by dinan. Stage 2 w/ Koni adjustable shocks front. Very happy with ride quality in the soft setting. Sport setting makes the car handling come alive. I'm told by Steve Dinan that you get a better ride with Koni's over the Bilstiens. As for the all season Z rated tires, I'm very happy with my Michellen Pilots.
