Hey guys got my new springs and shocks installed yesterday. I love it, very comfortable ride but corners like it's on rails. Why these cars didn't come form the factory like this is beyond me?!*shiner*
Enjoy guys

And the last one for now, I think I am only going to go with 16's for rims on the car, it seems to me like 17's will rub.

Jay,

The car looks awesome!!
Cant wait for you to get some mean looking "16s on there to complete the package...I bet it handles great, you can just rip around those corners...

Enjoy the e30; cheers Jordan

Looks nice!*th-up* I dont think 17's will rub with 2" lowering...Mine is 3" droped with 17's and +20 offset and i have almost no problems!

Thanks guys.....The car feels awsome, it handles like a proper BMW.
The setup is Intrax springs (2" drop), And Bilstein Shocks. The ride is comfortable, low enough that you can feel that it is lowered, but the ride isn't harsh at all and doesn't bounce all over the place!

Get a kit first than the wheels. My mistake was lowering it first (well it was lowered when I bought the car) and then putting on the kit...since the springs are so low the front bumper is very very close to the ground.

I will be adding FK Konigsport coilovers so I can adjust the ride hight for street and track/auto-X sometime this year...depends if I can sell 2 sets of wheels and one of my cars.

I love your white E30. You did not lowered it all the way too much just enough...really nice beater. If it gets you around and works fine you dont need E36.You are always welcome to E30 family *th-up*
