The thing is... is a big invesment to put wheels and complete suspensions all togelher and the first thing i wanted would be to have the springs first this because i reed about the 318is having already M tech suspension and im no expert put my drive now is really crap... my car when curves even at 25km it goes all over the place...:frown not preatty.. soo any sugestions??? :D

First thing I would advise is to have the front lower control arm bushes checked and replaced if required and also the rear trailing arm bushes.

If they need replacing then do so with Polyurethane bushes:cool

Once this has been done you can then think about lowering the vehicle. The 318is is lowered approximately 15mm compared to any standard 318 so if you are choosing a 40mm spring there will only be a 25mm difference:thumbsup

Two other items to check for wear will be the top strut mounts and rear shock absorber mounts as these are also prone to wear;)
