depends on the ride you want. if you want a sporty feel and performance while still being comfortable on public roads then go with a shock and spring set that suits your interests and budget (i suggest Koni and H&R).

If you are making a track car look into a coil-over suspension system.

but either way get the sway bars, strut bars, anti-roll bars, etc.

search this forum too, the search feature will be your new best friend.

Not tracking at all, just in town driving! Definatley want sporty but comfortable. So shocks, springs, sway bars, strut bars, and anti roll bars, that should give me agood suspension???

Funny you say that....my Bentley says that there is no need to rotate tires on BMW's...(I shouldn't say ALL, my Bentley is for E36's obviously)...it strikes me as weird and I asked the question to the forum a while back but I don't think I got a response....anyway...something to do with the way BMW's are balanced??? I dont know, I just remember it said it.
