My E30 w/ a lot of rake

Here a few shots of my car after I had my suspension installed. The rear hasnt settled down in the pics giving it that raked look.

Not a huge fan of the body kit... but the car has potential


Although the rears aren't settled... why is it THAT HIGH?!

yep 2in lift in the back, IX suspension in the front. Pretty tight huh, and it handles like a dream. 75wrhp makes this thing fly, its almost too much for me, it burns out in every gear. I really needed the aerodynamics of the kit to keep this thing under control.

Seriously though, I have tockico gas tubes all the way around w/ H&R springs. Some of the local guys also helped me install new urethane strut mounts, urethane control arm bushings, and ceramic brake pads. The wheels are enkei NT-03's, they weighed in about 1.7lbs each over the bottle caps. I have huge (215/55) tires on right now for the winter season and 45 series yoko ES100's for the summer. The rear is about an inch or 1.5inch lower now that it settled in and the front is about a quarter inch lower. I also got front and rear strut braces. its an M10 for now but hopefully by this summer I will have the M50 done along with having the car stripped, sanded, sealed, and repainted.

Not a fan of that kit, the bumper and skirts are too much for an e30. I do like the spoilerless look though. Too bad it's not a four door

And jordan, do you need to bash everyone. Your the guy who's probably put the most money into his car and got smoked by a neon. I'm all for building up something nice and not too over the top, but with all the work and money you put into your car at least make it fast. Go hire some more fat chicks to roll around on your car.

No Neon has ever smoked me.

After I'm done retuning the engine management after the most recent modifications I should be able to run 5.7 seconds 0-60mph if I can hook up off the line (I spin 245's clear into 3rd if I dump and WOT) Thats pretty fast for a N/A m20 thank you very much.

I don't need to have a blistering fast e30. I get paid to build and drive them.

Stop being an ignorant twit, despite how well suited to it you are.

No thanks, I think I'll keep it up seeing as you feel the need to bash nearly anyone who has something on their car that you don't like. So what if the guy is putting a lot of work into an m10. Not everyone wants to spend their yearly salary on a car cough cough. I may be ignorant when it comes to e30's compared to you, but you seem to be ignorant in every other aspect of life compared to a 17 year old.
