Suppliers for aftermarket coilovers?

Does anyone have any knowledge or know of a manufacturer who has coilovers for the E60 M5? I have searched extensively online and phoned several manufacturers/distributors and cannot get a commitment from anyone as far a manufacture date or time of delivary. Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.

I think Turner Motorsports is selling a H&R coilover kit. You lose the EDC function though.

RD Sport (formerly Racinbg Dynamics) has Coil-Overs and I purchased them a month ago. They are being installed as we speek - RD is great to work with and Federico (owner) is amazing. My M5 has been modified by him and lets just say it flys!

I tried a Florida based distributor for RDSport and had no luck with them. You have Federico # handy? You are adding aftermarket wheels I assume? What size wheel and tire are you going to be running? I have my wheels and tires ready to go just waiting on some coilovers. After you get your M5 back if you could send some pics and info on what set up (spacers, coilover adjustment, etc) your running I would absolutely owe you...big time!

sirbrodi, I called RDSport in CA and much to my surprise...Federico answered. Talked to him for 20 minutes ordered the coilovers shipping them out on Monday. I will be getting sway bars, exhaust, and reprogrammed as well. THX

If you're going this far, why not go all out? I'd look no further than Moton for a coilover setup.

I still had not received the correct coilovers from him...it took 4 weeks just to get my money refunded...would not suggest buying from them
