This would rape anything you threw at it, i'd need to price out the parts later to tell if its that much of a deal.

Simmer down, which craigslist is closest for you?

Lots of stuff in the sub 800 range, even if someone builds it for you.

This appears to be a solid deal. Talk him down a smidge and it even has 3 monitors.

These parts total up to about 1500$ if you bought them new right now.

They are a generation behind, so that 1500 could be spent on a much better rig. But I think 850ish including monitors is still a fair deal.

I would say fuuuuuuuuuuuuck no. The solid engine, trans, and diff mounts in my car were what provided all the NVH. Just be aware that if you get those you should do the driveline busings solid/semi-solid as well and you should be ready for your car to shake and rattle like crazy.

Yeah I knew there would be some NVH. I figured these would be the "road" version and not the "race" version. So it would give more of a direct feel and better feedback...etc. Yet not be as harsh as your car was.

I figured these along with semi-solid diff bushings and a mixture of "street" PF bushings for just about everything else (rear control arm/front control arms/rear subframe bushings) should give a nice blend of both possibly giving the car a much more solid and direct ride, but not a damn racecar like yours... ???

I would never put solid anything on a street-ish car.

And that is because i'm familiar with tractors and how they ride and vibrate and make racket.

My Deuce is both the greatest and toughest/harshest thing i've ever driven due to how miserable it is! lol

You are right in your thinking, it will give you a better connection with the car and road but will for increase the NVH. I would assume it would be some place between oem and my car.

What it really comes down to is what you can live with. Me for example, I will put 100% solid bushings throughout my e92 when I get it because after having them in my e46 I have to have that connection with the car. If you can live with it then more power to you, I think you will love it.

Question...

For a DD...
2007 328i Wagon 40k
2007 335i Sedan 60k

Thoughts...
Both same price... Knowing the Wagon has extra room to haul the dogs around and is also NA so no troubles or issues like you would get from the N54... Other suggestions??

For a DD? Neither...

But if you just have to have one of those, i'd prefer the sedan.

328s feel somewhat gutless but plenty fast for a DD. the 335 with the turbos have lots of torque and they're properly quick.

Why? I think I want to stay BMW Might consider other vehicles... but I want something "nice" good gas mileage... and looks good as well.

Yeah I know the 328 doesnt have much power... the 335 does, but thats kind of what Im afraid of. I might want to just put a tune on... then just add an exhaust... then add blah blah blah. I gotta remember its a DD and I have the M3 for fun.

Nope... but I do have 2 dogs that shed like a mofo and dont feel like having their hair all over the car. So the rear would be nice.. plus I always have room to haul other crap.

Get with the times Brad... A wagon with a light tint, springs, and nice set of wheels is the way to go...
