My Mexican Cholo Cyrpress Hill style E30

alrite, so finished it up last week.

not exactly satisfied with the end result.
I'll likely go BACK and put the Apex's back on the rear to drop a little more.
right now it sorta sits mexican cholo style.

fenders perfectly rolled however will need to anglegrind the rear arches if I'm putting the apex's on the back.
also, need much fater rear rubber.
with all the new suspension stuff on it, fatter sways (biggest b*tch to make fit with big exhaust), alu. endlinks, m3 bushings, camber plates and Koni's it handles amazing.
stiff yet soft if that makes anysense.

love it or hate it, it is what it is.

I like the way it sits. Not too low so you don't have to worry about speed bumps, pot holes, and crappy roads in general.

Never been a fan of those wheels and I don't like the poke, but I love how clean that thing is. Begging for plastic bumpers, though

heh, and I'm not insulted as I agree.
I'm really hoping a more aggresive suspension setup will pull it together a little cleaner.

theres a groupbuy for JOM coilovers on R3V that i'm trying to get in on...

wicked I wanna see that.

btw- might wanna rethink a e39 donor car, as that's going to be M62...which from what i've read is a wirring nightmare to get into E30's.

I really gotta get my car lower...might start that this evening while parts are still "fresh" from being off the car...nothing seized lol
