    was looking at slowly uprating the car, apart from the obvious m sport body kit, i was wondering if adding m sport shocks to my eibachs was an improvement due to them being stiffer and slightly lower! also what arb's can i fit that are better than mine? also is there any e46 standard models that use lighter parts?

    i'll start you off, is an m3 bonnet lighter than a normal 46? is the m3 boot lighter? is the m sport dampers better to use than sport one's on a car with eibachs? is the 330 arb thicker? or is there an m3 arb front or rear that will fit?

    you can get the M3 arb to fit lesser models...lighter body panels mean M3 csl stuff...normall M3's are are not lightened over lesser 46's afaik.
    damping has better options aftermarket imo...koni fsd if you're feeling flush and want some ride comfort left
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    i was told the m3 arbs won't fit? also i want the oe styled items! m sport shocks are stiffer a bit shorter, and i think they would compliment the car well! especially since i fitted eibachs. is the m3 bonnet not aluminium?
