Right guys, I need your advice and opinions as I'm stuck in two minds as to what to do to my E36 Compact...
I get my current BMW style 45(?) alloys refurbed in either gloss white or satin matt black. I whack on some decent tyres for the winter (e.g. Rainsport 2s), buy a good set of lowering springs and shocks (e.g. Bilsteins) and buy some M3 style rear lights to get stuff underway before the end of the year. If I go for more of a black theme then I'll be looking at tints into the new year too.
I buy some BBS, or BBS style alloys, that are bigger and better than my current setup. I whack on some budget tyres so I can compensate for more expensive coilovers (e.g. Supersports - recommended by my friend) to get the ride height bang on. Again, I buy some M3 style rear lights to almost finish off the car before Xmas.
Bearing in mind I've only got one green bar left on my service indicator, Option A seems more sensible as it will probably be cheaper. However I'm dead fussy about ride height, so coilovers seem like a no-brainer... but then there's the fact that if I go for Option B I'm sticking on budget tyres, as well as getting relatively budget coilovers, even at 450 odd pound. With Option A I'm sticking with genuine BMW alloys, a good set of brand new tyres and a decent suspension setup (comfort and quality-wise)... I'm just gonna struggle to get the ride height I want, and will probably stand there looking at it in a few months time wishing I'd bought some proper nice and expensive alloys.
Argh, decisions! Please help! I just want advice, opinions and more ideas, as there's so much more you can do to these Bimmers compared to my old Pug 306
Thanks in advance,
