offer

Hey.
I'm from southern MA, so I was thinking of making a trip down to CT to see the rims/pick them up. Save us money and time on shipping them.

Where in CT are you from?

What were the dimensions of the tires again??
Are there any scratches, or Blemishes?

Thanks,
Jon

Blue,

I have the exact same car as you, same wheels, and changed to 44's. You need to lower your springs by about an inch after you change to 17's. Otherwise, you'll look like an SUV. I have a set of eibachs for sale if you want them.

eibachs

Bandit,


Hey yeah, I've been trying to get information about lowering my car. I've heard eibachs are one of the best suspension systems for BMW.
How old are your eibachs??
Did you have them on your 323i??
Are these Springs? and Struts??

Well thanks for contacting me.

Let me know about those questions..

Thanks,
Blue

My Ride: 323i
Hi Blue,

I bought them in 2001 and put them on my 323i. I lived abroad for a year, so they've really only had 1.5 years of use on them, for about 20,000 miles. I don't drive more than 12000 miles a year, so it's been pretty easy on them. Eibach will lower it by 1.5 inch. The sports package is 1 inch lower than your package, so you will be half an inch lower than the sports package with the same type 44 wheels. Make sure you want a stiffer ride though. Some people like it stiffer, some don't. Eibachs are pure sport, so will be stiffer than the sports package springs. You will feel more road, and have less roll when cornering, but you will also feel more bumps and more of the road. Ideally you can try a car that has eibachs. But if not, I recommend you go to a used BMW dealer and try a car with the sports package to see if you like the stiffer ride. Otherwise, they're in good working condition, and I'd like to sell them since they're just sitting in my garage.

oh, and these are just springs. springs determine ride height, so you don't need anything else for these to work. But make sure you align your tires after you change from 15 to 17 inches. otherwise you might have uneven wear on the rubber. (free lesson - I learned the hard way)
