I put a 3.15 in my stick touring. It was a great swap. Doesn't feel slower in everyday driving and, more importantly, is much less frenetic on the hwy (but not the 2000 rpm of "modern" vehicles). ...

Pretty sure it is a stock "representative" photo. Our '99 came with KYB dampers. They were not what I would choose for autox, but still quite competent and lasted for 40K miles.

We think alike! That was my next thought. So I put a caliper on it and showed the diameter. Koni's repy, "Yes, that's what it should be." Well, it still didn't fit. And I'd even had my indy take...

Yup. '99 323i sedan. Shocks would need to be at least 5mm narrower to fit. I decided to go with KYB hardware again. Bolted up without problems.

Seems odd that they were fine for 3 hrs and now you have problems. And no seat should cause discomfort THAT quickly. Even sitting in an elementary school chair is bearable for 15 minutes or more.

On both of our cars it is necessary to twist the knob with a fair amount of torque to adjust the time. It felt like the knob would break the first time.
