No, of course not but I'm not looking for performance for this car only looks. I was only going to buy them because they were a good deal and maybe a slight improvement (visually) over what is there now. But that didn't happen and I'm not worried about it. I'll wait for next year unless something else comes up.

e28 fitment + adapters = no fitty mcverty.

*especially* if your concern is only aesthetic, suspension first. Possibly the body stuff too.

There are 3 things that I am certain about regarding this car:

1 - Car needs to be lowered
2 - Ride height needs to be adjustable
3 - Improved handling is not a concern

I know a GC coilover system is the obvious answer but it's too much money right now. Next year it would be doable but not yet.

What about the GC coilover conversion?

I know would still need to buy some Bilstein Sports or something too, but does anyone have any experience with this set up?

What I am wondering about is this-

They say that a ride height change of up to 2.2" is expected but how much will it be if I don't do any welding? Is it pointless to get this unless it is welded in? I tried e-mailing GC but haven't heard anything back yet.

Until I decide what to do in terms of wheels and suspension (and because Canadian Tire had a sale ) I am going to work on the seats a bit.



They're in great shape but could use a clean and I'm sure they could be a little softer.

We'll see how it goes and if anyone has any tips or tricks please let me know.

I sold this car earlier in the year but I found some photos from last fall that I forgot I had.





If I had room for another car I would've kept it

The car is in good hands however (http://www.maxbimmer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=149768) and I'm sure it has a long life ahead.
