Let The Games Begin... Suggestions please

Bottomed out the beamer last night... terrible I know... streets up here in Montreal are just UGLY... yes I'm an idiot for driving fast... once it goes bang it's just too late...

Muffler brackets broke, rear bumper shifted... I'm thinking tire moved it... anyway... I don't want to think about it...

While the car was up on the lift (it's still on the lift as of 1:30 pm eastern) had it all checked out.... no extreme damage but... see below.

Need shocks all around, coils all around, tires all around, rear bearings, inner tie-rod ends, RSMs, front control arm bushings (the big round ones that attach to the belly) entire exhaust system after manifold.

Since I need to replace these items, would any of you gentlemen have any suggestions as to EXHAUST and SUSPENSION, bushings etc. etc. options. I prefer performance before comfort if you're going to ask. Seeing as I have to change all these things may as well upgrade.

I'll be putting her away for the winter so I can do the work.

Look forward to any suggestions or previous write-ups. Thanks in advance.

e36surge-ry required....

wow, I bottom my car out all the time and I've never had any real damage from it... All the plastic sh*t under my car is torn apart but that's it. That sucks hard.

H&R springs and Bilstien or Koni Adjustable shocks. Any bushing or mounts for Ireland Engineering or Rogue Engineering. RSM you could use E46 ones.

I'll post pics of damage in the afternoon... left the mechanic at 4:30 pm.. 6 hours in the shop just patching things up... round two tomorrow... will I ever learn...

Didn't fly off a cliff... lets just say I ran into some construction... drifted the wrong on-ramp at the wrong time... muffler brackets snapped and so did the support near the resonators(sp?)... exhuast pipes cracked in three different places... passenger RSM was previously shot... rear driver side shock is leaking... bent driver side front mag... so you can imagine the impact... and after all that she's still driving well LOL.. sorry calm before the wallet storm.... gotta laugh or I'm gonna cry... front bumper has a crack too... x-brace is done... OOF...

The bright side... shocks, tires, RSMs needed changing anyway as well as one of the rear bearings... I think I just accelerated the process...
