    cheers steve, that's a relief! allright then, i know you did a coilover upgrade on your 325i as well. any particular issues you could point during installation? i got jom coilovers (although i heard they all the same, no matter the brand) and 5mm spacers. i will also buy aluminium adjustable front mounts and rear top mounts prior to the installation, drop link are no problem on e36, so what else should i have in mind before attempting to fit the suspension? help greatly appreciated!

    I had no issues at all Gabriel, used adjustable top mounts on the front and the rogue mounts on the rear. It makes it much easier using new mounts as you dont need to take apart the old front legs....

    if you dont fancy taking the old struts apart then you'll need new bump stops as well (unless they're in with the kit)
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    Looks like thats another two parts i should splash out and buy. i dont need them yet, but might as well reinforce it just to be sure.

    I Assume it's possible to fit these while the car is on the ground due to the pressure from the shocks ..

    are these bump stops just on the fronts then? so even with the new front adjustible mounts,you need them?
    is that the yellow bit in this i have for the front? hoping someone will no?

    I'm a bit lost there now JJ, the guys are talking about the top mounts for the rear, here's a pic of one of my old mounts

    The piece described is the same shape, only flat, and goes over it again.
