Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.


If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash

For WTB threads

-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    Camber plates for JOMs

    I understand this thread old af but if anyone using JOMs has an answer to this then its worth it. Has anyone used camber plates after installing on for your front? And if so what did you guys go with.

    I have a 1991 318i Cabriolet. If anyone can answer a few questions:

    The JOM kits are same for all E30 (318/325) but the 2 cars have different weights. Does anyone know why there wouldn't be different spring rates for the lighter 318 cars? I thought there is nearly a 200 lb difference.

    From my understanding here are the weight levels of the cars from lightest to heaviest.
    318i(s) coupe
    318i cabriolet
    325i
    325is
    325i 4 door
    325i cabriolet

    Am I correct.

    If I got a couple kit for my cabriolet what difference would I experience (better/worse)

    I am trying to avoid some members experience of having the rear too high (on my lighter 318i car) having to leave out the adjusters to get it low enough.

    Lastly perhaps the rear of the cabriolets is heavier than the rear of the coupes - hence the different rear springs. Am I correct? Thank you in advance for any and all answers.

    I don't have an answer to your question, unfortunately, but I'm wondering how long you had the JOMs installed before the fronts gave out?

    I'm also in the Madison area, thinking of pulling the trigger on a set of these..

    In Portugal, Braga. In Portugal we have a great e30 community . There are no haters. The only down side is that, here, the cheapest e30 are the 316i. They go for 2500 . 325i go for 7500. Other than that, Portugal is a great place to live. We have amazing back roads. Cheers

    Overall, condering they only cost me 250 brand new, i can say thay
    are worth.

    I just was searching through the board because i'm wondering the same question! Everyone seem to say that the rear wont go enough low compare to the front, and run without the adjuster. Anyone know, if with the coupe version on a vert, this will help to get a better drop?

    ^^ Car looks excellent. Mine is very similar but Royalblau and with metal bumpers.

    Any recent reviews on these from the people who have had them installed for a year or two? Getting ready to pull the trigger on a set of these, just trying to finish off the turbo build then these are on the radar.

    Thanks!

    Front and rear adjusted fully to the lowest setting.

    Nice ride, what size rim / tire combo are you running? I'm purchasing the JOM this weekend. Did you do any additional mods, cut the perch off/removed the adjusters etc?

    How low of a drop did you get? I'm thinking about purchasing. Can you
    Post some pic? ECU have them on sale this week.

    Jom

    For the guys with the late models e30, how low of a drop did you get? I'm planning on running a 16x8/8.5 or 16x9/9.5 W 215/40 setup.

    Anyone running vogtland sports?
