3. Im also thinking about getting some BBS LMs or Work Vsxx or Brombachers. What specs would look flush and nice?

Sorry I came from a Lexus so my mind is still in Japanese mode
1. I recommend LUX. More on the pricey side but definitely worth it.

2. Not sure if they're worth it but that's completely up to you. You can find used suspension in the classified section and here in the regional.

3. Seems like you've got the funds to support a purchase that big so I say go for it! 9.5 front and 10 or more in the rear with et22 front and et20 rear. That will be perfect. However, you will need to stretch tires to get those to work. Not sure if you're into that or not.

Also, if you'd like, I have a my set of TE37SL's for sale. You're local so we can meet up if you'd like to check them out. Here's my for sale thread. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=774935

For future reference.
If anyone knows of an LCI trunk and tail lights popping up for sale for a decent price, let me know.

I grew up seeing VIP, lowered vans, skylines everywhere coming from Japan, it never left me. I've got about 8-9k miles on my ST's, they're good for the family ride and held up, I'd still like stiffer with KWV2's or up.

Ask ltmw to ship if they have any used? I just made a call last week, seemed like there was plenty of other stock stuff around.

I think Im gonna get the LUX! They look hella nice! Which one should I get the V3 or 5000k? Theyre the same price. What brand HID should I get to match the angel eyes?

I got the funds but since christmas is coming up I gotta buy other things before I buy stuff for myself haha. Im just gonna start with the coils then buy my wheels right by spring hopefully. What coils are suggested ?

Man Those wheels are nice! I think I seen you around before!

I have one LUX v3 if you want to buy it from me. You'll have to message LUX and buy the other side to complete the pair. LOL.

Nice, Nice. People usually go with KW's, ST, Bilsteins or H&R. You can't go wrong with any and the ride is great throughout the board. If you're looking to save money and good coils, I suggest looking at ST coils. They're like a sister company to KW just more affordable.

You've probably seen me because I live in San Jose and drive EVERYWHERE and have HELLA stickers.

I'm Marvin by the way.
