    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So in the next month I'll be upgrading / refreshing suspension on my 06 9-3 aero. Unsure if I should go with coilovers (Ksports or megans) or regular suspension. Maptun right now is offering Bilstein B8s with their springs for only $730, while K sports are about $900 (Not including strut mounts...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So, recently bought a 2009 9-3 aero. Rear shocks are leaking and will need to be replaced before too long. The cost looks to be fairly similar- 1200 for oem shocks and struts vs 1000 for coilovers. Assuming cost of installation to be similar. Perusing old threads, it seemed most people went...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I got KW variant 1's installed yesterday. These are the ones where the height can be adjusted but the damping is preset to a "sporty" ride. First impression is what I hoped for, a more firmer/aggressive ride than the stock Aero suspension. I did some turns on the highway on/off ramp that had...
