Hello all,


I have researched and read quite a bit about this subject and I'm a bit torn.  Your feedback would be greatly appreciated! 


I have a 2005 C2 Carrera with 50k miles.  The car feels a bit floaty so I suspect it is time for shocks. I'm debating between doing Bilstein B6 sport shocks vs B16 coilovers.  


My use case is daily driving on the war torn streets of LA.  A couple of times a year I hpde instruct for BMW CCA but don't use r-comps.


I don't want to lower the car much if at all (lots of speed bumps and steep driveways) and want to retain decent ride quality.  Which route would you recommend? Thank you very much in advance for the feedback!

Thank you! I expect some degradation in ride quality.  How much worse are we talking?


Again your expertise is appreciated!

The lower you go with the coilovers the harsher the ride. Even at the highest setting, it will still be a bit rougher than stock.
