Hey first post here:

I've got a '93 325is and I'm looking for new suspension. I paid a guy I work with to replace my clutch and somehow managed to break the bolt off the passenger's side for the strut. Figured it's about time to get an aftermarket suspension system anyways, I'm just not exactly sure what I'm looking for.

After about a hour on google these are the most promising looking:

I'm trying really hard not to break 1,000. Posting here because after sifting through like 8 topics there seems to be a whole lot more bimmer knowledge to be gained here.

Thanks, Malice

It's going to be hard to get good coilovers for less than a grand. Better off replacing the struts springs individually for now and save your monies.

BCracing is the cheapest decent setup, but its over your budget by a fair bit.

Looking on craigslist I found:

E36 M3 H&R Coilovers (Street oriented set-up with about 35k on them)- Fully assembled with Upper Strut Bearings etc....Front is height adjustable, rear is barrell spring - $600

Few questions:
Is that too many miles for used suspension?
Will the m3 e36 fit my 325is?
Could I talk him down in price?
