You ask a question and get an answer from experienced BMW owners.
It not the answer you want so you start dissing them with your "sarcasm"?
You're not motivating anyone to help you.
and E30's can do quite well, realistically, putting so much tension and stiffness on a 15+ year old car can be bad, the chassis arent made to take that kind of abuse unless some serious underbody work is being done. Just learn to drive your car and you will just be fine, invest in just some new springs and shocks, and some lessons, and you will do better then you ever imagined, my car is completely stock and I run the crap out of it, and it does just fine, little roll here and there, but can all be tamed with the knowledge of driving..learn your car not your wallet.

Originally posted by greenlightracer@May 3 2004, 02:40 PM I'd like it to accelerate 0-60 in the mid 7's sec. (Its an auto). I'd also like suspension to be as tight as possible (no body roll).
I said as tight as possible. I asked for bolt on upgrades. I bought an e30, I'm a poor college student, I drive my car and I'd like to mod it for a hobby and to learn more about the car. I'm attending driving school this summer (thanks you very much), and again, not my question. I didn't ask what car I should have bought, I asked what could be done, you guys are very critical, and I feel pretty insulted. Also, My car accelerates 0-60 in about 9.1 sec. so to 7.7 is only a 1.4 improvement. That ISNT asking alot out of an e30. Manuals already (should) be getting 8.1 to 60. Maybe your cars are just slower. :P
