    Hello,

    I'm going to replace met shocks and springs.

    Was thinking about the B12's, but then I saw the KONI yellow (which are adjustable).
    I heard a lot of good things about the Eibach springs.
    But koni works together with H&R in their "package".

    Has anyone had any experience with the combination Koni and Eibach?

    For the matter of the Eibach springs, some people say they have/had sportline springs.
    I don't seem to be able to find anything on those for a Z3, only the pro-kit springs.

    My car is a '99 Z3 2.8 trackday-circuit-only car, so not much need for comfort.

    Thanks,
    Koen

    I looked at the Koni package, but could not find many reviews, plus for whatever reason they were dearer than the B12 kit, i am glad i went with the B12 kit though, a couple of members actually track the B12 kit so perhaps they can provide some feed back for you

    The reason for choosing the Koni's is that they are adjustable in damping thru a screw on the top of the strut.

    Don't know if anyone has any experience with the koni's and if someone would have any advice on taking the option that koni foreseen (H&R springs), or to opt for the Eibach that everyone tells so much great things about.
    BTW, still looking into the fact to get the Eibach sportline springs instead of the pro-kit (as the sportline is harder - more for "racing") - waiting on an answer from Eibach.

    Regards, Koen
