Default Suspension Options - Coilovers

I need to get my car lower, the wheel well gap is killing me. I have BC racing coilovers on my bmw, which I like, but they were pretty expensive. Looking for a good coilover option in the $600-$800 range.

Any ideas?

KSport is really the only option. It's not a Great coilover and it's at the top of your budget.

That said, it's not dissimilar from the BC Racing offering for your BMW. The BC Coilovers aren't necessary poorly reviewed by their owners but it's not considered a high end coilover kit among the BMW crowd (at least, compared to the KW, Bilstein, etc offerings) so far as I've observed.

It looks like Ksport is just as much as the bc racing A-62 for Acuras. They actually look just like them too. If I need to spend a grand for a decent set of coilovers them so be it, just wanted to see if there were other less expensive options. I need to leave room for new wheels and tires.

I am, had them on the last two years. It's a lot stiffer than OEM and I'm lowered only .5" and have them set to medium.

I was quoted $1080. A friend has them on his Saab, they ride pretty nice even on the lowest setting.

Thanks for the input, will consider these. Sounds like all 3 are around the same price point.
