    i'm upgrading and lowering the suspension on my 323i se, i'm looking at a koni street kit 40mm(front) 25mm(back) and was wondering if i will need camber/caster plates or if i'll be ok without them? also wanted to add 18" alloy's

    any advice or alternative suggestions welcome

    thanks.

    rear camber can be adjusted with the setup already on the car, no extras need to be bought, when setup with the alloys on make sure the rear tyre does not foul the arch as they will have to adjust the tops of the wheel out towards the arch (lowering 25mm you will probably still be within factory specs).
    as for the front, its not camber adjustable. you can get camber adjustable top mounts but they are around £100. you could always get the tyres flipped round to even it up if theyre wearing un-even.
