birthday coming up and well i was gonna get those m3 seats but they got up to like 380+ soo way to much plus like 100 shipping

well im just gonna ask for some dough! cash! money!

ya im gonna ask for 250 eh?

im gonna use the money i have now and what i get from my birthday to get lota cleaning products for the car (clay bar, zanios, touchup pen, lanky,metal cleaner)

that will cost about 70 bucks at most

well i found those springs for sale and damnn thats a freakin loww drop! the springs are pretty cheap but im afraid of the impact it will do to the car since of my drivway ( i will post pics, its very very steep)

is it worth buying? how much would it cost to have a shop put them in?

Get suspension! It'll make so much more of a difference. But don't drop it too low... I saw an E30 pimped out with the full M3 body kit in town a while ago. But the poor thing had been lowered so far that the camber on the rear wheels was all over the place.

I heard you can go down to 30-40mm before you'll start to affect the rear significantly.

I'm looking at getting myself the Bilstein Sports and Eibach Pros as a finishing-my-job present in June. They incur a 30mm slam I think. My friend's '92 scirocco has that setup and is beautiful to drive, corners on rails (well as much as a non-BMW can be )

Gone but not forgotten: '87 UK 318... Carb madness!
Currently: '90 UK 525i completely stock

wait how many mm are in a inch lol? it says it does 1.6front and 1.4rear

that may be a little too much of a drop... look at them on his car! really low

plus u know how ppl say" only fix it if its broke" then ya can spend your money on getting the performance parts... well the muffler and pipes are pretty banged up with lots of rust and wholes and soo unless that action ends reallly cheap, i think exhaust will come first

and he says that they are really stiff and i dont think i want it to be too stiff...its only a daily driver
