Hi

I got a question,
I didn't know where else to ask in this forum

My 330(ci)'s sitting on 225(front)'s and 255(rear)'s. Unfortunately I have that ugly stock wheel gap that comes with the sport suspension.
What kind of springs and spacers would you guys prefer?
Im specifically lookking for the combo that would give me the most bang for the buck since its and old car I'm only looking to spend around ~500.

Here are some pictures I had on my computer for reference

Is there a link for removing Buisness CD deck? Looked through this whole thread and didn't find it. Also looked under the audio section, which I'm sure it's there, but didn't find anything titled that. Can someone please provide me a link, it would greatly be appreciated.

Pop off your dash trim, and there is 2 screws underneath that hold in the buisness cd player. Slide it out, disconnect it, and you are good to go.

Thanks so much. I remember a while back I did come across a thread where it shows how to do it but I couldn't find that same thread again. I could be wrong so please correct me but I thought I remember that there was a certain order in taking off the dash trim pieces

passenger side then drivers. I usually just pull the drivers one off first and it pops the passenger side one off as well.

My Ride: 2000 BMW 740i
Hey guys, I just wanted to jump in here for a second cause I just picked up some staggered 18's, 18x8 and 18x9 and I was told to go with 225/45/18 in the front and 255/40/18 in the back. I feel like this set up is a little too high of a sidewall and I'm wondering if I should of went with a 40 in the front and 35 in the back. Whats the preferred set up for no rubbing and to not have to mod anything? This is on my 02' 330ci btw...any info would be great...

Double din install - BMW E46

The last post in this thread is from a while ago. I'm new to forums in general, this is the first forum I've ever joined, so please feel free to lemme know if I do anything wrong. With that said:

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=359575

This is the thread I'm following.

I'm at the point where I remove the cover and cut it and I'm looking for help. Any advice, tips, etc.

*Edit* The last post is from yesterday, was looking at other threads.

*Of great help, would be a better guide as this one is saying refer to the above pic but the above pic is not quite displaying what I think it should be...So with that said, does anyone know of a place near IP28 that would perform this for me? I would rather a professional take on this job than myself screwing up my beautiful beemer and having whistling noises driving or heat leaking...God knows what I'll do to my car haha but if no one replies...I'm a pretty impatient individual and will have a crack at it myself.

Depends how low u want to go bro.. The h&r race cup kit is great plus it improves the handling. However theres also the sport cup kit but its get your car sit a bit higher than the race cup kit. If u want go super low go for the race spring..
