328xi Wagon LCI Conversion M359's M3 Suspension

Been meaning to share a couple pics of my 328xi project. Converted the rear suspension to m3 standard (sub frame / bushings / sway bar / links) and poured custom polyurethane bushings into the front control arms. Swapped in 335i calipers with stoptech pads and rotors. The brakes really improve the looks and performance.

Also adapted M3 front bumper and did LCI conversion along with a number of other goodies.

Wheels are m359 avant guard's with 225's front and 275's rear.

The car is so balanced and tight it is mind blowing. I have had a number of 3 series and M product with custom suspension and this one out handles all of them. Could be the chassis rigidity or the near 50/50 balance. The xi steering ratio is a bit slow, considering swapping in the 335i rack.

Couple before / during pictures thrown in.

Love your suspension choices. I am contemplating going a similar route for my xdrive. It is certainly in need of some upgrading but I think I'll wait until I put a few more miles on my car as I'm only at 4k and this suspension hasn't really even fully settled yet. Glad to hear you like the setup though! Where did you order your parts from?
