Karm. She is not road worthy yet. I just got her to the shop tonight. Have to fix some brake lines then check it out for a tune up and check ye timing belt. She has been sitting for four years in this old guys garage. I got it just before he sent it to scrap. Luckily

I have a pair of strut housings and one spring perch is rotted out - if you wanna do the cut and weld style coilovers then I'd sell these cheap. They are early model though, so theres no hole in the spindle for ABS sensor

I have GC/Koni on my E30. Solid kit, I wouldn't turn someone away from buying similar.

But really, I love the TCK, AST, and BC kits. Excellent in every way.

I'm trying out a K-Sport kit. Easy install and good price. Quality has been questionable in the past but apparently has improved. The rears have adjustable shock body which is nice, and they're 36 way adjustable bound/rebound. Car will be sea worthy in the coming weeks so I'll report on performance.

Was it down in Windsor? I met someone at a gas station in Chatham that had an 86 325e they were trying to sell for a relative. Sounds like this car.

What spring rates are you running on that setup?

No it was in Chatham. guy had it sitting in his garage for 4 years and he never moved it just kept starting it. She runs like a champ now that the injectors are cleaned up with a fresh tune up.

Ya there actually not that bad so far. Just wish I would have found her before I dumped $2500 into the suspension on my vw lol. But she is fun to take to the track every so often now.

Wicked. Get it legal for Thanksgiving weekend and we'll go cause trouble on the River Rd.

375/475. Rear is too soft imo. Would be ideal with something like 550.

Too soft in the rear and a little too stiff in the front... With the koni yellows set to full soft rebound in the front i still find it a little bouncy when cornering some autoslalom courses.. Also i find a big load transfer when powering out of a corner causing me to have a little understeer...

350/550 wouldnt be too bad i think. I just wish that tokico made the d-specs for the e30. Had those on my last car i autoslalomed and they were great. Adjustable compression and rebound. Had a nice setup for track.. And a soft setup for street

I've got 500/700, no understeer issues that I've noticed but I haven't had it on the big track yet. I also have a bit more front camber dialed in too though which helps.
