To much for standard shocks to cope with?

Shocks will cope,not sure your butt or front of car will though.

I had H&R on my last E92,not a mistake I'd make again!

Looked good,totally impractical on UK roads though.

It's getting there. I've bolted the rear end on and fitted the prop back in. Also upgraded the gear shifter rod, engine mounts and stuck the massive FMIC in place.

The only thing holding me back is the coilovers. I find out tomorrow what the wait is for them. If they need to be built then I'm looking at 2 weeks minimum although they said that they might have some in stock.

I'm hoping it is back on the road sometime in Feb. Can't wait
