    This is exactly why you should never upgrade wheels before suspension...

    I had my wheels stacked in my garage for months because I refused to put them on my car before I lowered it. (years ago)

      I had to put them on to see/feel/throw up. The above quote is a 'Golden Rule' for sure. Besides these were Enkei's a.k.a type of shiite that should never be placed on our E30's... (craigslist = sold = trip to Austin to buy some dope BBS reps *see next quote's addressing)

      Yes sir indeed, I have my wheels sitting, same as you, for months, waiting for the drop, very close to buying the BTS-7511 pkg but that is a whole other story/thread. I'm juggling priorities on my BM right now.... Cheers

              Thanks Man. It used to be my DD, but now its my weekly driver since going to school. Saves a lot on gas money. I do what I can to keep it clean. My other 2 bimmers are at home under covers for the winter.

                  215/40/17 on a set of Niche Pultecs

                  Now with subwoofer/amplification, rear is appropriately low.

                        sometimes i wish i'd have an early rear arch e30 with euro bumps... then i could put IE3... but i just hate the stance with lower, late arches!

                          I think I'm going to go with some IE Stage 3's, Bilstein Sports, and a shitload of poly bushings. I'm tired of the boat-like cushy ride. I want firm and direct.

                            Bilstein Sports
                            IE Stage III's
                            All else is stock
                            IE claims 2.0 drop front and 1.5 rear
                            haven't taken any measurements myself.
