the dealer is pretty cheap for front clear indicators I think its like $50/side.

markD's chip is good, http://www.dsylva-tech.ca/

aand, depends on what kinda suspension you're looking for, ami sells a coilover kit by FK, or you can get a spring/shock combo like Bilstien and H&R or Eibach, for a bit cheaper.

Thanks Gamite.
Im thinking of h&r and bilstien sports or koni sports does anybody have any experience with this set up? I want the stiffest possible.

Youre car looks really good.How does youre car ride with Eibach/bilstien (which ones), and did you notice a difference with the chip?

If you're looking for stiff, I would probably recommend you going with an FK setup, koni's have adjustable dampers, plus you get adjustable height. You can't go wrong for the price.

My setup is pretty much good for me, its still comfortable, there's a bit of roll, but, considering my car is an everyday driver, I can't have the stiffness when I drive to places with bad roads. Its a good 50/50 compromise, more handing without sacraficing too much comfort.

The chip, yes, I did notice it, they say M30 motors get the most gain from a chip aside from the E28 M5 motors.

Before you do any mods

Make sure that your engine is fuly tuned up and that your suspension is in perfect condition.

I was using my E34 for the track and the car was nicely modified. But the thrust arms and control arms had to be changed every two or three years.

Keep in mind that if you lower the car you are going to put a lot of stress on the suspension parts.
I agree with everything Gamite said.
Next you can buy a turbo charger or get a cam for the car.
A MAF will also give you another 10 HP. I am also working on larger throttle bodies, but like any E34 mods, no one is really interested but me.
