Paired with H&R springs this is by far my favorite mod to my Z3! Transformed the way my Z3 handles and it retained ride quality.
Any additional comments?
I was worried H&R paired with bilstein b8 would be too stiff for daily driving, but this was not the case. I'm beyond pleased with this setup! I wish I would have done it earlier!

What made you choose this particular product?
Bilstein is well known and pretty affordable. I didn't wanna go for coil overs cuz they were too pricey.
What were you trying to accomplish by adding this product?
Needed to change the front struts, stock ones were thoroughly weathered.
Was it easy install? Any installation tips that will help others?
Not a walk in the park, but it isn't too bad. Did it myself and took around 3-4 hours mostly because I mixed up the strut mounts and had to do it over again. Go to a parts store and pick up a spring press, they aren't too hard to use yourself, and you can return it after you're done.
Once you’ve had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
Fantastic improvement in ride, yet still stiffer. I have to put some more miles on it to know for sure about handling improvements, but the ride quality is much better.
