FYI, I had a leaking Bilstein and called the So Cal shop. I gave them the stamped # on shock and they had all info they needed to revalve. Sent it off and got it back. All is good

Hey Mark in Toronto. You mentioned you had a Dinan setup that your thinking of replacing at some point. Do you have sways too? I'd be interested for my 88M6 if you decide to let them go. I had a set on my 85 M635 and the rocked

They sure have and hopefully the 88 M5 values will to

They know the Bilstein Sp and HD valving spec's but the Alpina valving is foreign to them...unless something recently has changed

Yep, sways as well. You will have dibs on the parts when I refresh the suspension at some point in the future.

David,

Glad to see you found the site! I know you think the Pearl Beige is plain, but I've had it in all of my E28s (my luck - I never went searching for it) except the B7. I've learned to appreciate it. I hope that one day my car can look nearly as nice as yours, Roy's and Sia's.
