          318is 80k miles, bought it torn apart as a racecar that was owned by Aaron Reid, the brother of Jason Reid who did the body work for 1552 when they were in Florida. He had a kid and sold it to a neighbor who let it sit until I got it. It was abandoned in the beginning of the build. It's almost finished now, but that will be another thread.

          H&R springs and shocks, lowered about 2.5" front and 3" rear via trimmed top coil.
