not that bad just 500/550. nothing intense. one of my friends e36s has the 450/500 and one has the 500/550.. its not that big of a difference. both feel really great and confortable.

if you think your 450/500 rates are bad. you shoulda rode in my friends 240 before he parted it out (after the drifting into a guard rail incident). his **** was stiff as hell. ever fuking bump you would be able to feel. no joke you would probably be able to feel running over like a row of quarters stacked up 2 high.

it's fine for short stuff, go on a long drive and standing up would be the best feeling ever.

best bang for buck suspension is probably GC's but KW's and PSS's (prefer KW imo) are great too for the price and off course if money is no object how could you not mention motons

What most people forget or don't know about are AST coils. I'd rock them in a heartbeat.

to be really honest. i don't like it. the body kit(s) you posted aren't the clean style i go for aka real subtle and simple. which is for the most part what people like on this forum.

same go with the rims, i don't like chrome because it is too flashy on our cars.

for the most part people might seem like they want to show off, but they do a lot of 'clean' style mods. they don't like throw it out there really obnoxiously. (which i think that is what chrome wheels and those body kits you showed are).

thats my honest thought on it.
