Buy an E36 328is.
You're kidding me, 17x7.5 Alpinas? What is that, nine thousand megadollars? Get the Ireland Engineering Stage III suspension, they equate to H&R race springs for a couple hundred bucks less. And I think their front rates might actually be higher.
You'll want a good many braces if you have a convertible, they lose a lot of rigidity being topless. A Big Brake kit's like $1000, too. You planning on driving this forever?
