    I have been driving my 5 lug swap car for a few weeks now .....
    front-- e36 coilovers (raceland)
    non M brakes
    97 &up control arms
    E30 M3 lollipops
    E36 steeringrack


    wheels are 17x8 style 5 BBS e34 fittment ET 20 somrthin.



    after rolling the hell out of the fenders front and rear, smashing the firewall in with a 15 lb. sledgehammer the front doesnt really rub too much anymore..... I understand the offset is wrong- should be et 40 or so.

    so now to the FACTS..

    at around 140 kmh the car is so loose due to the lack of caster I have to drive with my fingertips in curves. At 180 and above even in a straight line the car is so loose I am scared to go any faster.




    end statement.... DO NOT DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the suspension geometry is so off the car will feel like crap unless its just a cruiser not planned to drive over 40 mph.


    ohh, btw I am a sevice tech at a dealer over here in Germany and have had the car on our less than 1 year old rack a few times
