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.

thanks ppl, ya the funny thing is the rims r stock 16" rims that came with the car lol and ya the 2 tone was a random idea i had when i was paintin her lol but ya turned out pretty good, im gonna get it show quality painted when i get more money lol,
quote:
(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)

ya ive already got the rear chamber arms lol fitted them not long after i lowered her, i kept goin thru rear tyres spes runnin 245's lol.

darksigno, ummmmm i can try and find some1 there 4 ya im currently down in viccy due 2 bein in the navy lol but ive still got mates up there so ill find out 4 ya and let ya no aye.

but ya thanks guys its not very often i get complimented on my car, ppl normally pay it out coz its a bmw lol but ya i think they r beautiful cars alone, and ya this is only the start im wantin a show quality when im done and maybe make a few mags as well.

cheers guys and girls

Re: Brisbane

You guys in AUS should check around the shops in the Logan and Loganleigh area! I passed by that a way not long ago, on my way to the Gold Coast from Brisbane. My pic you see below was taken in the Green Mountains, btw;)

Bimmer parts, original and aftermarket performance items are a-plenty! New or 2nd hand... ;)
