Clear corners & side markers would be a good start.

I'd actually like to see full pics of your car too, I've seen your sig a bunch of times while trolling the forum as a noob and it looks sick.

New to me 2002 325xi Touring checking in. It took me a few days to find this thread and then a couple more to make it through the 102 pages I just bought this car a month ago and have put about 1K on it. it kinda feels like my Grandma's Caddy on the freeway, not like my last E46 (2001 325i). So I gotta try to track down what's causing the slop.

I'll be flushing all the fluids this weekend and then start swapping out the suspension. I'm not super interested in getting that slammed look I just want it to look a little sportier so any suggestions would be welcome. I'm also on quite a budget. I was thinking Bilstein Sports and Eibach Pro-kit but it seems a lot of you guys are going with H&R.

I also want to run some spacers, I plan to keep the 17's that I think are from a 330. What would work the best?

I was offered 12,800 for trade in at a local dealership so I'd probably look for $14k private party to make up for the tax break I'd also get with that. Not sure if that's possible, but they also don't have anything I really want so might try to go private party for both selling and buying. If thats the case I'd have to look at KBB/classifieds and go from there. PM me what mods you were thinking of and I'll let you know
