I had a 2001 E46 coupe that I installed the PSS9 suspension, so when I wanted to upgrade my A3 suspension I immediately thought of the PSS10. I have very fond memories of the PSS9. To mitigate costs, I installed the system myself - quite a cost savings and the job was pretty straight forward. It took me and a friend about 6 hours total. This system transforms the car - cornering speeds are much, much higher and overall handling is much improved. The damping adjustment is an awesome feature although I have only changed the setting once. If you track your car and use it for the street I can see how the adjustment function would be a requirement. So easy to make the adjustment - you can get access to the knob by turning the fronts full lock (no need to remove the tires) and I access the rear by parking on the culd-de-sac curb. I am running 4 on all corners and it is about the same as the stock firmness (the car had the sport option package). We have nice roads where I reside so the firmer ride is good. The height adjustment is really easy to adjust as well. I originally set it too low - scraped on speed bumps and had to be careful even on my own driveway. So, I got the wrench and raised it up - really easy even with no lift to assist. Overall I am a big fan of this set-up and if you want sporty handling with the ability to adjust easily I say the cost is worth it. -- Review submitted: 2013-09-15

The Best Suspension ever, met all my expectations, lowering and dampening, and the kit even came with trunk stencil to cut out for adjustment knobs. I have tested settings 1 -10 and depending on the roads i would set it to 3-5. I live in Chicago and the roads here are horrible, I ride on 19 low profiles and I can tell you that this suspension definitely saved my rims multiple times. On the hardest setting you will loose your teeth when going over bumps on softest it s smoother then stock so you pick what you want. 10+ this is the best thing you can do to your car! -- Review submitted: 2013-03-02

The best suspension modification you can make to your car. Installed the kit my self and got BMW Dealer to do the alignment. Absorbs bumps very well. Dropped my car 2 inches from sport suspension, no rubbing with VMR 19 inch rims from pyspeed dot com. Tested settings 1 2 3 4 and 5. 5 Is stiffer but almost 0 body roll. 1 is for long trips. Streed driving is set to 3 as it absorbs bumps very well. I think 3-6 would be best suited for street and occasional track use the best part is that it takes 60 seconds to adjust. Turn the steering wheel reach for the damper knob turn and adjust your setting. Open the trunk pop the cork and adjust your settings. This will transform your car handling to better than of an M3 car guaranteed and with the option to adjust dampening / stiffness. You get lifetime warranty as well buy far the best single upgrade you can do to the car. -- Review submitted: 2012-06-23

I should have purchased this kit a long time ago! Ride quality is excellent for as low as it is and damping adjustment is easy. Height adjustment is more involved but I don t mess with it now that it s aligned at the proper height. As controlled as a new stock sport suspension with a LOT more control without being too harsh. Carried family around in the car recently and they also rode in my uncles stock 325i sedan of the same year with sport package and they didn t notice much difference riding in both. Installation was easy and fitment was perfect. -- Review submitted: 2011-07-20

At #7 setting it is tight but not harsh. At #10, it is violent but fun and sharp handling. I m very pleased, better that OEM handling and ride. Instructions were not correct/clear. Front high lowered at least 1.75" not 1.0" which was more than I wanted. Minimum spring seat hight per instructions is 370mm which yields 1.75" lowered which is too much. I cranked it up to 375mm which is beyond Bilstein max but it is too low. That is my only complaint. But the adjustability is great. Worth every penny. -- Review submitted: 2011-02-25
