Mod bug

Seems to me the more time I spend on this forum, the more my car changes.

Picked up these rims/tires for dirt cheap yesterday and I just love the look of them on my car.

You won't hurt the car if you know how much to lower it, ST coils will do.

How much did'u get them for?

Yeah, idk. I lowered my rx8, this car doesn't seem like the kind of car I'd want to lower... But we'll see. I'm sure over time that will change.

I got the rims/tires for $500. The guy had them on his e46 for like a month, his car was lowered and they were scraping pretty bad so he sold them to me...

Blacklines are way worth the money. Especially on a black car.

This is a LONG discussion from my perspective. I have/I've had both. From what I read from you on this thread....you should get springs/shocks....H&R Sport/Koni yellows. Coils are overkill IMO unless you get the best (AST or Ohlins). You have to worry about making sure they're adjusted right ( not that big a deal but something you wouldn't have to do with springs/shocks). And I've read so many horror stories dealing with them. If you don't have the time/patience and you don't EVER plan on going to a track (not 1/4 mile), there's no reason to buy them.

But that's just my opinion...which I think is pretty good since I've read like every suspension review on this forum along with 1,000's of other's comments/opinions on all setups. Etiher way, just search the suspension section (read the sticky) and read all you can. If/when you decide to do it....don't cheap out and don't sacrifice. Save the $$$ and get the best parts you can.
