      I'm curious, why did you decide to use sleeves up front instead of bellows? There looks to be a good amount of space.

      Because I already had these in my possession and I prefer the lift I get with these bags. Also, If I decide to run different wheels, that is just even more clearance I will have.

      Not to poke at you but how could your prefer less lift and less drop? Plus the bellows run better. Spoken from a guy who owned both standards for a year and now XL's

      These bags/struts will lay out, so as far as less drop, that is irrelevant. Now for the lift, these bags provide plenty of lift for what I am wanting. The mean reason I prefer these bags is due to clearance as I prefer not to rub the bags until they pop. And I have extra bags.

      Personal preference though.

      Lol yeah. I should have plenty of lift when needed with these bags. I will make a video once completed to show drop and lift.

      How is your car doing? Haven't seen it in months.

      Actually bellows take up less of the height of the shock. All the Airlift XL bellows used on the VW has the bottom of the bellow sitting higher than the wheel/tire just like how the OEM spring seat is above the wheel/tire. You'll get more clearance from bellows while getting the same drop and more lift.

      I think most people don't bag bmw's unless it's a 740 or whatever because they enjoy the sportiness of the cars. My friend let me drive his e36 328i coupe lowered at a reasonable height with some suspension mods and I must say it grips onto the road like a beast, I love it So I guess it just depends what your going for slow and low or racekor, either way i'm in for updates should look pretty sick when your done

      Well it looks like it may take a bit longer before the car gets bags afterall. I ended up putting the bags back on the MK4 for now and decided to finish it once again. E36 will stay on coils until spring....

      Nice, was curious about this. Well you should just keep the old system on the BMW and go XL. Otherwise IMHO there is no reason to run air on a Mk4.

      Lol, my Jetta lays sub frame with the lifestyles, so there is no need for XL's. Plus, these are cheaper and dampening.

      This gives me a few month to decide on the perfect bags to use on the E36.

      Yeah i cut my struts, shaved the knuckles, tubbed the fender liners and run 18's.

      I am about to put my 19's on though so it should get even more interesting.

      Do you have updated pics yet? All I saw were the old ones with like seven spokes.
