Hey man
Me and noodle's had a chat about suspension while ago,
He said if you want to lower the car but also want a great drive you should go with coil covers.
You should have a chat with noodle's about this he would help you out a great deal.

Those be the coilovers. Schnitzer is expensive.

I just read up on the Brabus SLS and they chose the Bilstein coilovers for that.

It amazes what places charge for them. As I get some time after the holidays I am
going to find out what the factory OEM spring rates are front and rear. Find some
well made brand name progressive rate springs (so ride quality will still be good) and
see what coilover conversion kits are out there. If not it can be done by getting some
parts that meet the specs and make coilovers from existing parts for half the price
or less.

very nice choice, show car rims ;)
How much did they cost man?
(Without the tires)
P.S i get my car back next week cant wait it'll have the sway bars, kleemann mods, cant wait to see how it goes then aye.
I dont like the rims i got on my car at the moment.
I got these 18inch.

but i wish i got 19's though but yeah to late to change now.
I went with 18's because i didnt want a rough ride with 20's nor the car siting higher.
But 18's dont look good on a big sedan like mercedes, 19's is the way to go like your rims.

Those aren't bad actually, do you have a panoramic roof? Thats the reason why i got mine black so i got a black theme going with the matching roof. I really have to see how they look on your car and that can say alot more so post some pics when you get it back from the shop. Also how many horses is your car at now after you done all the mods? im curious:)

Thanks it took me a while to find these shoes for my baby and rim shops were quoting me different prices some really high but i was able to find them at $5,000 without tires The rims only come in 20 inches so after 1 month of waiting for them to be made they arrived and i made sure they put a custom Mercedes logo in the middle cap because i didn't want that MHT symbol and the tires are Pirelli.

I only have the normal sun roof and not the panoramic roof. I got a gloss black/chrome because having all blacks looks good but to many people have it same with chrome. And also the rim shops here didnt have many rims for mercedes and in my opinon i thought they were the best looking out of the bunch by far.
Stock e350 has 268BHP, after the mods mine has 340bhp so yeah i think thats an improvement for keeping is aspirated.

thats really is awesome, i bet it was worth ever dollar aye to make your ride look soo much better.
But also nice choice of tires as well.
I got michelin tires on mine.
But yeah im not a hoon and dont go around speeding or racing people, I got the mods for self happiness. Like in my opinion as long as you know your car goes good, thats all that matters ey (couldnt find the right words to use in that sentence hope it makes sense lol).
