I've just bought a '95 M3 with 97K miles. The radiator and water pump have just been replaced and I'm being told I need to replace the shocks. Not looking to spend big $'s on this. Suggestions?

aftermarket will probably be cheaper then OEM replacements I would imagine. I'm ordering my stuff from understerr.com. Good luck

who said you need to replace your shocks? Is it a shitty ride, not stiff? If you think it rides fine, then dont waste your money at this point.

Cheapest place I've found on the net, so far, for shocks, is www.shox.com. As Robbins said, is the ride gone away? bouncing, hard to steer? If it feels allright, may not need any shocks. the M3 is a little lower and rides a little stiffer and handles better than the 325. If you do need replacements, Bilsteins or Konis, can't go wrong with either one.

1995 325I, window tint, K&N, debaffled airbox, BMW #104 wheels, Nighthawk low beams, smoked side markers, smoked corners, smoked taillights, M3 stlye heated mirrors, various interior bits, Bosal cat-back.
