  1. New guy with BMW e36 compact

    Hi All, I have recently bought a E36 msport compact as a little run around. It has the m43 1.9 engine, only done 60k miles however I really want to refresh the suspension. Any ideas of what kits I could go for? Don't want to spend loads but don't want to buy cheap either. Kind regards James
