thats USD... but pretty much anywhere.

FYI the list vs. retail on those is very close. There is next to no markup.

on the subject...
H&R cup kits, any good?

exclude race, track setups, just opinions for a close to OEM/better, suspention setup for an e30. Seeing I have a 318, all thats offered is a 1.25 drop all around, pretty much exactly what i need, just something new again.

keep in mind, daily driver! is it worth it? -not that its expensive 385us.

I have the H&R Cupkit on my e30. Have ~13,500mi on it. Its stiffer then stock, but still soft. Its slammed to the ground.

Its not suited for track/autox use. But for a daily driver with attention to oil pan killing obstructions.. sure.

That said I have Ground Control coilovers, IE camber plates, Koni SA's and ST sways going on the car shortly.

I don't know where you are finding the cupkit for $385USD. TMS has it for $749, and Tirerack at $699.

I paid $521 for mine Dec 2003. Thats about $20 above list price.

No, The H&R Cupkit is sold for 325i/e fitment ONLY!

It will however install directly to M3's and 318iS's. It will not lower as much though, as those cars are ligher being 4 bangers. Specs for 325i are: -2.1" F/ -1.7" R

There are many pictures of my car on the Cupkit in the link in my sig.

375/450 to start with. I will buy another set of way stiffer springs after I get used to these. Replacement springs are cheap! Thiking something like 550/700 after, maybe more I dont know.

The new suspension is to prepare the car for track duty, and to prepare it for 18x8.5 CSL wheels all around shod in 245/35R18 T1R's.

^ Really, I cant understand why people try to source them around here then, cuz on ebay/bavuto they are much cheaper then anywhere local or even regional.
