E90 M Sport shocks
#1
grin 
Gents.


So my epic90 needs front shocks.
It's M Sport BTW.

Problem is, Goldwagen price on Bilsteins is R 3650.
So 7k for both + around 1k for mounts maybe?

Thats 8k in total, 10% the value of my car, lmfao!


Anyways, whats the recommendations? Anyone bit the bullet recently? Wheres the best place and brand to get etc...



Thanks.
Samir, you breaking the car...

I recently changed the shocks on my e90. The shocks, mounts and stabilizer links all came to about roughly R9000.

The Bilstein B4's are the direct replacement for the M sport suspension according to GoldWagon. I haven't had any issues with them as yet. IMHO they doing the job.

B4s are an OE replacement
B6s are a sport upgrade for OE replacement
B8s are a sport upgrade for a lower car ie and Msport or lowered car.

I have B8s on my car and paid about R11k with mounts. Also did M3 control arms, new tie rods, stabilizer end links and poly sway bar bushes which was about R13k

So Golwagen quoted me on B8's.

Maybe should call them back and ask for B4's or 6's



Thanks

What e90 is it for. Technically the B8s are the correct shock.

I would have to say the KONI option is a no brainer. A fantastic product and serviceable so next time you don't have to replace. I did all four (supplied by Koni Boksburg) on my E82 earlier this year and can't fault the ride.

Some pictures of the shocks fitted to the car. Orange isn't my first choice in colour but honestly you need to be looking for them to spot them when it's on the ground with wheels on. This is a 135i so M Sport suspension, same as the E90.

Rather fit the adjustable yellow Koni.
The price difference is small and the ride difference is huge.
Unless you are on a budget I would encourage you to consider the yellow.

They are closed till early January but can get you a price when they open if you wish.

Thank you Peter, please get me the prices please, but is there a difference between the orange one as per pic in Donz135 as we basically have the same setup in suspension, a bit scared of the adjustable as I have no experience yet of setting them up and where i live not sure if someone could help with the adjustment settings. Current ride height is Low/High enough. I do not mind spending a bit more for quality/reliability.

The adjustable segment is on the damping side which effectively means that you can make the shock stiffer than the 1M shock should you so wish.
Height is not effected.

I shall get back to you.

The yellows have a damping adjuster on the top and they come with a little tool so you can screw them in or out for a harder or softer ride. Much easier to do the front as the top of the shock is exposed. The rear ones you'll have to set and forget cause removing carpets each time will get old fast...
The orange ones are basically a stock replacement shock and provide a great ride.
