Performance in mind. A fit and forget part
Is this your first time buying from this brand? Did you consider other brands?
Yes this is the very first time. After hearing about them I want to try them.
Was it easy to install? Any installation tips that will help others?
2 bolts per schokabsorber, so that is very easy. Ad anti seizing compount on the full length of the bolt as this stops the metal bushes rust solid on the bolts. For the ease of removing later.

What made you choose this particular product?
great reviews and a high degree of adjustability along with a great reference from my mechanic concerning the quality of the factory tuning
Is this your first time buying from this brand? Did you consider other brands?
No, I had a set of B4s on my E30 prior to this
Was it easy to install? Any installation tips that will help others?
professionally installed for a few hundred dollars
Once you've had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
It definitely improves the handling due to faster stabilisation of weight transfer with the only real downside being loud noises on certain aggressive speed humps
