mike01ci, how many people do you think will be at the Frozen Custards place? Wondering how much parking spaces there are.

External adjustments are good. My new coils have them and I have them set to the stiffest (but will fine tune on the weekend). Install is a breeze too. I just installed my old coils on a friend's can this weekend.
I'm going to order them, the price is to good to pass up lol, here is a link:

I hope I won't need to put in 5mm spacers, cause I heard some wheels might hit the spring. It would suck to find out I need them during my install.

I don't think STLBMWCCA has their own autocross events. I saw some STLBMWCCA stickered cars at the STLCCA SOLO event and I am sure they will be there on 4/18. Hope to see you there.

mike01ci, how many people do you think will be at the Frozen Custards place? Wondering how much parking spaces there are.
Looking at Bimmerforums (2), stlbmwcca (2), and m3forum (3) my guess is that 4 will actually show up from Columbia + me + you 4. There are plenty of spots and we will only be there for a little bit. I will be at the Imos right next door probably around 11:30ish, so if you call get hungry and arrive early grab some pizza. I am trying to think of the closest DIY carwash near there b/c I have a strange feeling you all are going to pick up some bugs and break dust on your way. I will drive up there sometime this weekend and keep you all posted.

I've read these aren't too harsh and on the softest settings it is similar to the factory sport package. I am really eyeing these because of the sale, any thoughts?
Go with the TC Kline S/A set up it is amazing and very smooth on the street and really flat in the cloverleaf I have not had this on the track yet...I have 550 front and 600 rears.

These are externally adjustable. If you are interested let me know I know a vendor that is cheap with good service

2 of my supra buddies should be making it, they are checking to see if others will join us at Wentzville. We'll have a couple of cameras with us and I know Pat will too.

When I ordered my coilovers they said it would ship in May but I looked at my email and it shows that something shipped already!! Won't make it here until mid week so I won't be able to put them on before the meet

Sure will, thanks for offering. I'm trying to decide if I need to cut my bumpstop and if I do by how much. In all my previous cars I usually cut them in half but I read that e46 cars with sport packages already have a shorter bumpstop and don't need to be cut.
