Konis are expensive (150ea I think) but fully adjustable.

If you are afraid that you teeth will rattle, you can go with the shock you have right now if they are not shot (Boge).
Boge oil or gas are softer than the Bilsteins.
Bilsteins are stiff, but I still love them.

With Eibach, a stiff srping to start with, you should go Konis if you have the cash. Else, keep your shocks until they leak...

'89 535i

I have gotten some Eibach Pros for the 95 525i. I am loking for ride quality opinions from those who have done the upgrades. I am looking at either Koni Sports or Bilstien HD's. This is still the family car so the ride quality is some what important.
