I purchased a (hideous but strangely growing on me) Pistachio coloured 325ti last Monday, with low miles, FBMWSH and a lot of the b-s-bits! I like the pokiness, but it feels like a barge from my last car (lowered and stiffened mk3 MR2 with hard top!). I've decided to get some suspension with the left over change, so, it seems that droplinks need to be replaced when lowering, and I've seen it recommended to replace the top mounts, but what else, any bushes or anything?
I'm new to the e46, prior to my Mr2 I had an e30 318is, so I'm not new to the BMW thing! On the e30 I had a Weitec Ultra GT suspension setup with 60mm at the front and -40mm at the back, my Mr2 had FK springs which were -30mm all around! I'm rocking factory 16's with 5-spokes with a split in the middle of them for the time being - I'll get the suspension done then go hunting for some wheels...
