In Portugal, Braga. In Portugal we have a great e30 community . There are no haters. The only down side is that, here, the cheapest e30 are the 316i. They go for 2500 . 325i go for 7500. Other than that, Portugal is a great place to live. We have amazing back roads. Cheers

looked back through the thread but haven't seen an answer. My front shocks bottom out pretty good over bumps and I'm not even dropped all that far. I think the front shocks are blown.

So, I want to replace them. Has anyone ever replaced them with Bilstein shocks but kept the springs / coil over part?

I don't have an answer to your question, unfortunately, but I'm wondering how long you had the JOMs installed before the fronts gave out?

I'm also in the Madison area, thinking of pulling the trigger on a set of these..

I have a 1991 318i Cabriolet. If anyone can answer a few questions:

The JOM kits are same for all E30 (318/325) but the 2 cars have different weights. Does anyone know why there wouldn't be different spring rates for the lighter 318 cars? I thought there is nearly a 200 lb difference.

From my understanding here are the weight levels of the cars from lightest to heaviest.
318i(s) coupe
318i cabriolet
325i
325is
325i 4 door
325i cabriolet

Am I correct.

If I got a couple kit for my cabriolet what difference would I experience (better/worse)

I am trying to avoid some members experience of having the rear too high (on my lighter 318i car) having to leave out the adjusters to get it low enough.

Lastly perhaps the rear of the cabriolets is heavier than the rear of the coupes - hence the different rear springs. Am I correct? Thank you in advance for any and all answers.
