Okay, I need some help now guys. What brand of each of these items would you recommend, and where can I get them?

I am looking for some good 16 inch black rims that have either a lip to em, or go sorta in, kinda like Tocaako's or sorta like the older Mille Miglias. 16's that are 16 X 7.5 or 16 x 8.

What type of suspension setup would you recommend for canyons and track use(I dont care about comfort...that much)

Where can I look at things for a sideskirts, lips, and rear end anf front end stuff, OTHER then bimmertoys.com turner motorsports.com and bavauto.com

what else should I do? if I get a k&N conefilter, what else woul dI need to make it run well and not mess anything up, other then purchasing a heatshield?

I hate: people who haven't died yet that I hate.

well since you didnt mention a price limit, i'd go with Ground Control coilovers with Koni SA shocks. as for looks, the factory (13-piece) M-technic II kit looks awesome, and would fit your car without modification. they usually run around $900-1100 overseas. for wheels, i would get Kosei K1's or OZ Superleggerras.

here's a pic of the MtechII kit, notice how well the new bumpers and side panel lines flow, unlike a stock e30 trim.

I dont have an 88 M3, lol.

But I went to lowendesign.com and they have EVERYTHING that I want, lol.

They have that Metech11 kit and this sweet AV3 one that I am contemplating on getting, and they have awesome 4 lug rims, I really want it. I can get it by the end of the summer if I try real hard.

and I was looking closely at this pic, and I really like the kit, its a real good size, and doesnt make the car seem like some mex low rider(no racism), and I really like the size of the 17's, they look awesome. and then all Ill need is a decently stiffer suspension, and my car will be exactly how I want it.

Where are you stationed? I'm at Bitburg but don't hang out here that often. I am at a few other boards most of the time.
