My factory one was leaking even though it was replaced recently and this one took care of it plus it belongs there anyway.


Glad you enjoyed it.

Itís a great idea. I did consider it, however I felt that the stock one from the factory is the square one, so I kept it. I already replaced it since mine was weeping too.

I understand.
Besides look, this one seems better built than square one IMO. Plus, "M" logo oil cap is definitely at home in "M" engine bay.

By the way, Dinan recommends to modify the stiffness of their Koni shock when using their monoballs, not sure if people are aware.

Curious if you sourced regular Koni yellows or Dinan spec Koni yellows? I'm about to replace mine and was curious if you're trying to keep the S2 spec? I know the only difference (besides Dinan tax) is the pre-adjusted rebound.



Interesting about the adjustment for monoballs, I have those as well on my S2. My original shocks (108k) are awful so also doing full spring/shock/perch/pad/etc.

Dinan whore here. Yes I went Dinan spec Koni.

While it seems the shocks on my car have 10-15k on them allegedly, with the full suspension refresh about to happen, I suspect there should be some noticeable difference. For you, absolutely!

Looks great! I just did a complete suspension refresh on the Cayman and looking forward to doing the same on the M5. I'm gonna stick with my stock springs but go with the Koni sports too.
