Latest on my XI

So I don't know about you guys but I enjoy seeing pictures of what other people are spending their money on.

In the picture I have new Lemförder lower control arms and inner ball joints. Powerflex fcabs which many people on the board recommended. I didn't see until after I purchased them that some including Kubica recommended the E36 M3 bushings but I think I will be all right with the XI model. Performance Friction z rated pads, highly recommended by Kubica, and z-man rotors. Also pictured are some other misc items like outer axle boots for the front etc.

I will be doing my shocks and struts at the same time and decided to go ahead and get the eibach springs but not sure which model shocks and struts to go with. I saw someone recommend the bilstein HDs even though the sports are for a lowered car. This is where I was hoping Kubica or someone else can enlighten me on why the HDs over the sports.

After all that is done I am switching back to my stock wheels, style 79 I believe, and new summer tires. Thinking Hankook Ventus V12 in 225/45 17. (No snow in Florida and why I have a xi in Florida is another story.)

Anyways just thought I would share what I am doing and any input is appreciated. I will post some progress pics on this thread as I perform the work. My car just clocked 140k miles and I have owned it for almost 100k of that. I have never replaced the brakes in almost 100k miles!
