If your gonna get sport lines you better be prepares to buy good shocks that will last. They are soft springs, they will blow out stock shocks . Unless your buying the kit, but even then I've never heard good things about eibach shocks

Wait are we talking sport lines or pro kit? Also yes get some good shocks. The springs aren't that soft, but they are progressive spring rate. So they feel soft in the first little amount of travel.

It is that same rod bearing chewing motor, however the z4m's have the updated rod bearings and to the best of my knowledge (although I haven't researched it too much) it isn't an issue any with the motors in z4m's

sorry I forgot to get on here and answer your question after the FB message

also z4m = 333hp base z4 = 231hp

yahp. the problem is they are too soft at the start of their progressive range which causes them to ride too deep into the shocks most of the time which results in blown shocks.
