pre summer mode

Oh wait I don't really have a summer mode!!! Expect for my bottlecaps going back on, freshly painted I might add.
I have recently swapped my rennsports for e30 M3 springs, that along with boge turbo gas all around, updated bushings, front shock mounts, and ball joints in the front, new front outer tie rods, new shock mounts in the rear, has made for the best my car has ever handled. The rennsports were nice, but the car actually handles better with the e30 m3 springs. Especially with any mid corner bumps. I know she sits a little higher, and feel free to fire away with, "omg your car is high" comments
For now she will work until I finish school anyway. I guess she isn't really worth much anymore with 323,000km and counting.

not bad, what shocks did you have when u had the rennsports? maybe that was why it handled bad.

It doesn't look too bad, how much did u pay to refinish ur bottle caps, or did u do them urself?

I still had the boge turbo gas shocks...they are made for lowering springs, but probably not as good as bilsteins.

I painted the wheels myself. Used Auto Glym silver wheel paint. So easy to use, comes out perfect every time. I put on 3 coats of paint and 3 coats of clear.

If the front was down just a hair it would look better, but better handlings better handling.

Love the front lip thing. Bottles look brand new. (best comment I will ever give for bottles)

If it makes you feel better, I'm at 304,000km.

And yeah, M3 springs will actually give your shocks room to move; dumped E30s don't handle too well. Looks good, keep it up.

Hey Jay what are you driving up here? I live across the street from the college so I don't drive to school anymore, that's why my car doesn't make to many appearances at the school any more.
