A New Purchase for the E30!

I saw this on ebay and it was in quebec so I thought I would jump on it!
It's a Sparco Strut Brace and it is ultra light (under 5lbs).
I can't beleive the difference in the car, it really stiffens up the front end even in everyday driving! I would highly recommend this upgrade, you really can see how much strecth there was in the shock towers without it!

They go for $109USD from www.evosport.com. Just for the love of your wallet beg them to ship it as a gift, I paid $48 in duty/brokerage.

Or you can get it shipped by air, the duty/brokerage is included and comes out less than ground. Oh, and did I mention it gets to you faster?

Thanx. Got a mailbox in Detroit and drive there weekly. Should get one once I order or figure out my new suspension set-up.

Yeah, I picked it up for a good price which is why I got it, but 109US$ is not bad at all, worth the results.
