    Hello peoples

    Names Alex and I picked up this E36 328i in December but have been a bit lazy at finding a forum to join so here I am finally!

    Car was bought for just over £2k with FSH from BMW. It's not a sport or mtech model but has been treated to a fair few bits by previous owners....

    I'm local to Guildford/London so will no doubt bump into some other members at some point....

    Here's the car and afew changes....Currently the wheels are going black and coilovers/exhaust are on their way! The ACS wheels are not genuine and were corroded, hence the refurb....











    Cheers
    Alex

    Cheers guys.....

    The ride height is a bit pony at the moment and I have some coilovers awaiting payment but i'm unsure of my decision....

    It's my only car so used everyday for 25 miles so I'm after a lower stance and better handling but I don't want a poor/harsh ride.....

    Options being lowering springs, but I have heard if you go lower than 40mm you can blow the shocks due to increased constant load.

    Budget coilovers, but then there's the question of ride quality and whether they will last on bumpy B and A roads.

    Expensive coilovers, but then spending £600+ seems a bit of a waste as the car will only see 1 or 2 track days a year.....Best compromise would be??????

    Are they springs, dampers or coilovers?
