Who runs Íhlins R&T?

Hello guys. I'm looking at upgrading my suspension on my F82 comp pack and i'm leaning on Íhlins road&track kit. I have looked at other kits like KW and Bilstein but i like the technology with the DFV valve and i don't want heavier suspensionparts than stock aluminium. It would be nice with some "Reviews" on the Íhlins kit from you guys who runs them and what springrates you are running, wheel/tire combo for example.

Johnny.

The shocks themselves are great, the hard part is choosing the correct spring rates.

For a street car, DO NOT go with the standard/default rates that come with the kit, they are way too high.

I went with the M2 standard kit. Not many spring options were avail. when I got mine, as the were new to the market at that time.

Ok, i see. I suppose that's the 190 rear springs then. Íhlins says you can go down about 25% in springrate without revalving so i Think i'm going to check that out. I want a slightly softer rear end that is more predictable on the limit, besides comfort.
