Any Bilstein B14 PSS owners here?

I've just got my set in today! I'm sort of confused of what I need to get from the dealership to install these ex: top mounts,top bearings,etc.. The instruction that came with it is confusing as hell LOL. Anyways any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

How you liking your straight pipes man?

Curious why you went with the B14 PSS as opposed to the PSS9? From my understanding, the B14 allows you to lower the but has no damper adjustments, correct? Also curious to see your impressions once you get it installed.

BTW in case you didn't see this thread: Picture Request: PSS9 suspension installation

Hmm, wonder what happened with the install. I am curious about the PSS. I would do the PSS9s but damn, those badboys aren't cheap and there isn't a legit spring/shock setup for our cars. Heard about the B&G springs/koni yellow setups, but never seen pictures with 19 inch wheels. The drop with that setup is also modest at best . Decisions..decisions.

Oh, so you have the PSS(B14) installed? Please do tell. How is the ride compared to stock. Would you call it firm or harsh. Please also post picks if you have any. Thanks.

yes I have.
Ride is firm and body roll is less.
Someone who doesn't know what a stock M5 feels like still thinks the M5 drives very comfortable. Bumps are slightly harder but not kidney bruising.

There are a few pics here: M5 pictures by biofreaksa - Photobucket
