Not a problem if you want to slam the car on coils or bags but you will be disappointed with any springs you buy
can you do a conversion or even roll em out fit bigger springs?

Well that's a plus but the price is a bit steep for what it is unless they're legit rs's and its in excellent mechanical condition

Springs fit fine they just don't go low enough to get rid of fender gap in most cases coilovers will get you low

the car does look all stanced out but its just the camber and spacers, looks like a really clean car. you said he had a receipt? pretty sure these rims haven't been made for awhile now so id look into that, otherwise looks good cosmetically but be sure to ask about maintenance

Yea he sent me a picture of the receipt did look old if I may add also I will inquire about maintenance if it has had regular maintenance what would you say a fair number would be for such a car? I will more then likely sell off the rims and wheels for something more practical again thank you for your quick replies and help been wanting an e30 for so long now its redic have money set aside for one for little over a year now >.<

Hahaha will do bud going to view it saturday, I also have a silver tongue when needed so hopefully I can bring him down a little on price if I do end up buying it I will most def PM you considering the wheels stance isnt really my style thanks also for your input initially I thought it was abit overpriced but since researching the parts he has on it seems he would be losing if not breaking even on his car and I cant deny the sexiness of it either :P

86 ETA $2500 for mine and it's kind of a lemon but nothing I can't learn to deal with.. some spots need to be cut out and patched, suspension overhaul, new subframes, steering overhaul, swap for 24v
