  4. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    So I'm going to change my shocks and struts and also all 4 springs on my 325ci with sport suspension. I've decided to use Koni FSD shocks and struts and was wondering if I should use Eibach Prokit springs or just use stock sport springs knowing that I want my Konis to last for as long as...

  6. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    It's apparent now after scouring the Autotrader every day for a few weeks that I'm not going to get a 320CD Sport for under £5k unless its got 120k+ on the clock. Here's the dilemma: Do I opt for an SE with 100-110k on for 4700ish (With 18" MSport wheels) or go for more mileage, 120-130k sport...
