Just an UP-Date...
so I'm about 5000$ (+600$ for the car) into this project and nearly done....
I've replaced or changed/upgraded the following,
Poly Rear Subframe bushings
Poly trailing arm bushings
new rear bearings
new stainless steel brake lines
Welfare big brake kit (e46 330i brakes front and rear)
M3 body kit (thanks Tom used to be Euroguy)
Rebuilt z3 rack
new inner and outer ties
new power steering hoses and pump
new Eibach performance sway bar kit
new HR cup kit suspension
new eibach front camber kit
new eibach rear camber kit (arms)
new cat back performance exhaust
interior is gutted, was when i bought it... might just leave it that way for now
the car is rolling and all I need before paint is a rust free trunk lid. I'm also getting the windshield replaced during paint.
