Welcome! If yo want to track the car definitely look into some coilovers. It's your best bet for tuning the car to the track and also gives you the ability to adjust for the street as well. Also, front strut brace is a must as well as it will stiffen the chassis significantly. You may also want to look into chaning your bushings as well. There are plenty of upgrade kits for the E36. Personally, I'm a fan of powerflex.

Turner Motorsport can likely international ship. Their international number is 011 978 388-7769. I'll see what else I can find.

In terms of coil overs there is KW, Bilstein, Koni, Tein, H&R.

With coilovers you're going to want adjustable control arms in the rear and adjustable camber plates for the front. Unfortunately, coilovers make everything a little bit more complicated.

Very nice man. I'm usually not a fan of stripes or two tone schemes, but with black wheels and the M3 bumper, your car pulls it off well.

Well done.
