I'd vote for BMW performance springs and Koni yellow shocks/struts.

I also want to figure out what suspension setups/kits I should be looking at since the car will be on stands anyways-
The 330 diff may be different than mine the same cover may not fit. I believe the 330 uses the larger diff that the 335 used?

Do the BMW performance package or full blow coilovers. I've been impressed with the offerings from Fortune Auto.

I agree Iím very happy with my bmw performance suspension. Itís a good mixture of responsiveness and comfort. I wouldnít want anything harsher but adding the adjustability of coilovers might be nice.

I've got 15000 miles on my BMW Performance Suspension and I couldn't be happier.

I can't imagine going any lower. I scrape my bumper and I've lost a jack pad already.

Awesome! I may just keep these then and replace the set when a piece fails. I may venture the idea of coilovers. Just have nothing to compare to, and dont wanna gamble, lol. Thanks for your input!

performance springs are soft. not a significant improvement over sport. too much roll and pitch even on street.

you want something around 600r 400f. also, suggest sbf bushings ie m3 if you don't have them. this is a very good balance for street and track.

tc kline are great and knowledgable. love their set-up

How did install go? feel any difference? Also, did you ever change the pulley too!

Mine is running great, and glad I dropped it in but can always go for more POWA as long as reliable!

Probably not.

Funny thing. I bought a Z3M finned diff cover for my E30 like 10 years ago, mostly for the solid bushing (and because it was a good deal). It's probably worth 4x more now than what I paid for it back then. lol. But don't expect E9x parts to go the same way...

Manifold is on its way.. if I manage to sell my e23, the manifold in conjunction with the other bigger upgrades w/ BPC, would happen sooner. Turned a couple heads, but no serious inquiries yet
