My Ride: 325I
Looking For Stiffer Suspension

I Would Like A Less Swaying Ride Than I Got Now. Ive Been Doing Some Research But Have Come Up Empty.

My Situation Is I Got A 2005 325i With The Sport Pkg. Thats Supposed To Be Enough Right?>..well, I Would Like To Go With New Beefier Struts Or Shock Absorbers...and New Sway Bars Thats All. Also
Im Putting A Thicker Tire On The Rear From 225/45/17....to A 245/40/17

There Are A Couple Of Companies That Make These Parts But Im Not Familiar With Them.

Remember I Dont Want To Change Springs, I Believe That The Engineers Spent Plenty Of Hours To Make Our Car Somewhat Perfect So Im Not To Happy About Altering My Suspension

Best bang for the buck. They offer far greater performance enhancement than springs and/or shocks, and they cost less, too.
Just like an Idiot Savant only minus the Savant part.

lol, cut the guy some slack.

: If you're not planning on doing autoX regularly or attend track days, just get UUC or Eibach sway bars and leave everything else alone. Your sport suspension is good. And you're right, the engineers did a good job w/ it. I tracked my car w/ stock sport suspension before and it did fine.

As time passed I wanted a more aggressive setup so I'm now on coilovers.

a set of off the shelf Koni's or bilstein struts will do wonders for your car, even with the stock springs. Your car will be more comfortable, handle better, and you will enjoy it more.
