    My 318iS with New Suspension!

    It has been quite a while but the new suspension is finally in. The car is by no means slammed but should still settle some more (it was only installed late last week) and rides extremely nicely now.

    It is running on Bilstein Sports with H&R Sports and Suspension Techniques Swaybars front and rear, new bushings, etc. and the only thing left to add as far as suspension goes are the TR Eyeball Arms that I have waiting to go in.

    Overall, I am quite happy with the way the car drives now, much nicer than before and below are a few pics of the finished product - I just need new rims and some good tyres to finish things off.




    Let me know what you think, I would love to hear your feedback,

    Pete

    Looks beautiful Pete, nothing more to say really :up: I really love the colour too.

    Sounds like you've spent a tonne on suspension - bet it handles brilliantly now.

            I just lowered my 318is. Looks pretty much the same just a bit lower...and white. Whats wrong with the weaves dude...they're pimp.

              Yes.

              But too high! But thats my taste. As for the weaves, just paint them gunmetal centers with Duplicolor wheel paint. It would really set off the car.

                And fix the antenna while you're at it. ;)

                  Don't rattle can the wheels on that car. If you do, don't mount them. Stick with factory painted wheels on that glorious blue. Sick 318is Pete 8)

                    Thanks for all of the kind words guys, the car is slowly-slowly coming together and getting closer to just how I like it.

                    As for the wheels, I was thinking of looking for some Euro 15" weaves or something similar such as Ronals so that I can put some wider and better rubber onto them. And yes, the antenna will be fixed soon. It does go all the way down, it's just struggles sometimes and will be dealt with very soon.

                    Anyway, I appreciate your thoughts guys, any other ideas or opinions are more than welcome! :D

                      Just thought I'd add a wallpaper for anybody interested.

                          Does that mean my 325 is gonna sit that high? Makes me reconsider my H&R Sports that are on order. Great looking car though!

                            325 sits way lower.

                              Yeah those pics were taken literally two or three days afterwards though. I am hoping it will still settle some more,
