Finally a decent update!

TcKline's are installed. Kosei's and RA-1's put on. I still need to fiddle with the ride height. The rear needs to come down quite a bit. Looks like I need shorter springs as the adjusters are all the way down.

Mmmmm. No worries, stainless lines will be in soon

Ya brand new off someone on the forum actually. Paid $450.

They have a flawless design. I even like them better than the TcKline plates on my 328.

So I can definitely recommend the GC's, they have a few version too incase you don't want full "Race" plates. They'd be a mix of rubber mount and whatnot so you don't get the typical noises you get from Spherical mounts.

Vorshlag are really nice as well but $$$

I'd try to find a good condition used set on bimmerforums. You'll get them for half the price.

Believe me I've been looking! How much are the gc race plates new? the vorshlags are $440 new + rape fees from ups which will probably bring it above $550

Looks good man. Some 5.5" 60mm springs will do the trick for you.

^ You sure? I coulda sworn his rear springs were taller than 5.5.... hmm time to look in the Eibach catalog to see if they have smaller springs! Too bad they aren't 2.5"...

Holy shit you're sure they're 5.5 Mike? That means I need a pretty small spring lol.

The car is just too light. TcKline has shorter springs for lightened cars, so I'll give those a shot, I need want higher springs rates anyway.

Rudy, I guess I could always find some 2.5" Height adjusters and use those nifty spring perches I found at Tom's.
