Run slower and it'll be spin city... especially if your running more-show-than-go 19's.

*edit - I do plan on visiting Shiv sometime soon, but not sure when.
LSD is on my list guys lol don't worry I'm not going to get rb turbos without LSD first. Just wanted to see if rb turbos was the route I want to take or not.

Suspension Mod Install in Sac

Hey guys, I just ordered the first mods for my '07 335i sedan - H&R Sport with Koni Yellows (Front/Rear). Can anyone recommend some shops here in Sac where they can install these at a reasonable rate? I reached out to Valley Motorwerks who quoted me $600 w/ allignment which I though was a bit pricey.

That's about the going price including an alignment. The install takes anywhere from 4 - 8 hours. It's doable with some basic tools and jack stands if you have the time. I can refer you to a friend who has his own shop and did my Koni/HR install, once you get a few more posts I'll PM you the information.

That's great, thanks. I'll try to post more tonight to get over that 5 post minimum. Btw, what size spacers do you use (if any)? I just ordered 12/15 (front/rear). Been reading various posts which provided a range from 10 to 20 on E90 sedan. Going with stock rims for now.

if you are running stock 162 at stock ZSP height, or slightly lowered on bmw perf suspension. you can run 15 front, 20 rear without any rubbing. 12/15 is too conservative.

That's what I thought. I'm about to install H&R Sport springs and Koni Yellows (hopefully next week). I'd like to upgrade wheels too, but I'd rather invest in software mods first. I recently toyed with a black Lamborghini Gallardo around Elk Grove. Off the line races only, and totally got my a$$ handed to me! lol
