        1990 325is.

        Rear:

        318ti subframe and trailing arms. weld-in camber and toe tabs. Bilstein shocks, H&R Sport springs. e36 sedan calipers, custom brakelines so they don't need to be mounted upside-down. Stock e30 ABS sensors with washers to shim them out.

        0.30 degrees total toe-in, 1 degree camber.

        245/40-17 tires on 8 1/2" DS2 rims. Slight fender roll.

        Front: e36m3 spindles, brakes and control arms (97+). Offset CAB's. Koni cut-a-strut inserts. H&R sport springs. 215/40-17 Michelin Pilot on 7 1/2 DS2 rims. 0.120" shims for 2 degrees camber per side, 0.10 degrees total toe-in.

        e36 ABS sensors spliced into stock wiring.

        Perfectly centered, slight rub at extreme lock.

        Brake bias valve to rear removed.

        Overal impressions: Car tracks straight, corners on rails and stops on a dime. Braking is phenominal!

          if she goes for that, astroglide up your pole, have her lay on her stomach and slip it in slowly and bury it to your balls and leave it there until she relaxes. once she is used to it slam that ass like a screen door.

            I need some more pictures of the 5lug swap with 18's. I found a nice set of wheels but I'm thinking they may be too big. To those of you who have 18's what size tires are you running?

              I know Jordan had 18" CSL reps on his. Not sure on tire size, I think 245/40's iirc. I'm pretty sure you're gonna need coilovers to fit that kind of meat in there though, unless you don't mind some rubbing. I'm running 235/40R17's on mine and they are pretty tight (even with pulled fenders).

                I had 18s on for a while, but the tire was like a 225/40/18... a bit on the tall side. The wheels were 18x8.5 with an offset of et40. I will run them again when I feel rich and I decide to buy new tires.

                I am on H&R sport spings and I added an extra 15 mm spring pad in the back to try and get rid of some of the rubbing along with some rolling of the fender.


                I think this was before I added the extra sping pad

                          Looks good. i got the same wheels for cheap from a friend. Looks like you dont have M3 brakes? My clearance is so tight with the 16" wheels and M3 brakes, that I had to stick the wheel balance weights on the outside, which looks tacky

                            My Alignment specs:

                            Is that a factory M technic body kit?

                              Heres mine with the BBS rk's on it. Seeing Mikes car in this thread reminded me I had a pic of it. they look better than the borbets. (I have the borbets still and will sell them)

                              my plan was to get the car repainted but I screwed up and slid her into a tree recently. the rear end is caved in pretty badly, so now its a donor car for a clean body I picked up from a fellow forum member
