Who here is from Houston?

Damn, the same happened to me 3 1/2 months ago. I got pedal happy and made a fast left turn on the underpass and lost control, " I had dtc/dsc off", yup, stupid. Luckily I had 4 lanes to correct my mistake. Really sucked, along with the embarrassment.

No problem! It's always nice to meet another fellow E46 enthusiast/fanatic that's within the area ! I didn't think you were serious about the exhaust, but if you like it, we'll do it!

Since you have a prefacelifted sedan I would guess that your suspension is shot. So you will need at minimum front upper mounts, rear shock mounts, new bump stops, lowering springs, and struts.

If you had searched you would have found infinite threads on suspension freshes that include but are not limited to FCABs, lower control arms, sway bar endlinks, sway bar bushings, and RTABs, of course in addition to the aforementioned items above.


Here is what ECS's complete suspension refresh kit contains, it costs a minimum of 767.95 currently using non OE parts. You can do these bit by bit until you have completed the refresh if you choose, or you can ignore it all.

2 front control arms
2 control arm bushings
2 sway bar end links
2 tie rod assemblies
2 strut mounts
2 strut mount reinforcement plates
2 rear shock mount reinforcement plates from the Z3
2 rear upper control arm bushings
2 camber arm bushings
4 rear upper and lower trailing arm ball joint upgrade
1 differential bushing
4 rear subframe bushings
2 trailing arm bushings
2 rear shock mounts
2 rear shock mount gaskets

If you guys don't mind keeping a lookout for the RSX it'd be great. Just trying to help a fellow enthusiast out~

Was stolen this morning from his driveway.



Has Honda Badges
License plate BZF4045
Sugerland area (Chelsa Harbor near 90 and Grad Parkway)

Only reason I'm posting this here is because he's in the SL area and the fact that many of y'all are in the area as well.

If you do see it, call the police or hit me up with a text or call 832-692-4115.

This is why we can't have nice things....
