Eibachs lol. They're decent in price and you don't want to low-ball on your car. Don't expect to not break the bank in doing mods on a bimmer. It costs for quality. You start taking shortcuts and your front wheel will end up in front of you at an intersection one day.

Ebay for the rims. Cheap and decent quality. Just stick to namebrand and you'll be fine.

my e30 is dropped on eibach prokits, not necesarrily the best springs, and i am rolling 17's. If you are just looking for style and cruising, 17's are ok, but if you intend to track the car or something of that nature, don't go any larger than 16. here is a couple pics of the drop on mine.

thats a spring kit.

Here is tire-rack's page for it.

Suspension Products for BMW 325i 1989

And i think they are a sponsor, so you might get a discount.

Look around. I have H&R's on mine with Bilstein sport shocks on mine. +1 on the tire sizes that GSD recommended. At the end of the day, it's your choice, but think what it is that you really want and how you want your car to handle.

I would recomend you keep your car to its original state and try to find the BBS Rims the car had from the e30 but do not lower the car to much because the Oil pan sits really low on BMW e30s
