    Looks good! Front should settle down a bit in a few months of driving. Rears actually look lower than mine.
    Id post a pic but think they are gone.

    Bilstein as applied to E34 is an upside down shock absorber. This means the actual piston width and the tube width are SMALLER in diameter - read "potentially not as strong". Also, has internal bushing, as observed by removal of the outer shell tube. This makes the setup buttom out. Cutting the bushing is possible, but voids warranty. Sachs- Boge is a good shock absorber that retains correct functional diameter, and has gas filled options as well.
