Default Anyone have direct experience with Ohlins R&T coilovers? - 12-30-2016, 06:35 AM

I have power, brakes, and tires...now I desperately need to upgrade the suspension and have my sights set on Ohlins. Need more info, though. Mostly concerned with ride quality. Anyone?

Everything I've ever seen on them has rated them second to none

FWIW, I had them in my E92 M3 and the ride was better than stock. On the track kept the car planted, no issues, no drama. I am getting ready to put them on my 335i expecting similar results.

FYI, the Ohlins coilovers DO NOT FIT the AWD models (xi). Their site says 2006-2012 E92 but they mean only the RWD models. Ask me how I know.
