Air Ride.

Running air ride on a 91 Integra, 97 F150 , 98 S-10 , 96 Ranger , 89 Imark and a 89 Towncar but no Bimmer. I haven't even heard of anyone in the T.O with a bimmer on air.

Well quite frankly i'm sick and tired of cop's pulling me over telling me that my car is too low, the tickets just keep racking up, also a close friend of mine works at an air ride shop and for the price of coilovers i will have a full air ride set up... Hope that answers your question.


Go low or stay home, that's the way i see it!!

What is too low?
How many tickets have you had? If you're car is too low they generally don't let you drive home, they remove the plates or impound it.

And you're going to have crazy tire wear thanks to messed up alignments.

The car has been pulled of the road twice and could not be towed untill I removed the front lip, also 2 set's of plates have been pulled off the car court date april 16th 2006, now that's enough of a reason for me and also I can't wait to be tuckin 19" p.s It's a cabrio it already handels like shit...

If your tires rub when you turn, or even if ur rears rub, they have every right to take ur car off the road

I thought people lowered BMW's to improve handling, not to "tuck 19's"

Sounds like we got a newb on our hands. Just a guess, this is his first BMW, and is coming from the world of RICE.

Honestly, Air ride, belongs on Pimped out Caddies(Old school) and Show cars.
Its like putting air ride on an Enzo, or a CGT.

Bad idea IMO

... and my car suffers from both.

By the way, there is a red e36 318i with an M3 engine, tranny swap... the guy retrofitted a Honda Prelude front bumper, a Honda Accord rear bumper, chrome bullet-hole grills, chromey rims, chrome headlights, and is running air ride.

He found my car a disgrace to car modding, he says it'd look better with chrome 19's, chrome grill, and chrome headlights.

so of course, I'm going to chrome out my car as recommended this summer!
