So when the wheels and coilovers arrive I'll let you guys know. I'll go ahead and get someone to put tires on them and just install everything in one day.

Hell, I'll even provide beer and food for whoever helps. I'll just be sure to set it up on a warm weekend where I can fire up the grill or what have you. I just need some people who know what they're doing so I don't end up falling apart in the HRBT or something.

I've done full suspensions before, not on BMW's. Done the rears though... no problem. Did the coilovers come with RSM's aswell? if not I would look into trading them as well if they arent already.

I have yard space, and basic tools... no grill though

Don't worry about it too much, Macpherson setup up front, you've seen the rears at daves. Get a torque to torque everything down properly and consider getting an alignment when done. I'm not sure how bad it is on e36s, but as you drop the car your rear camber will be affected. You may need to also look at adjustable rear control arms if you want to be able to tailor your alignment settings, I had to do it on my 240 once I went to coilovers.

I'm down the help install some coils. You helpful fellas already saw the rear done, the only thing different with the coilovers is an adjustable spring perch goes on the bottom rather than the spring pad. Should be fun and easy with coilovers, might not need a spring compressor either. Don't think so.

I have no job currently, so a drink would rule right now. Currently camped out on the couch with my roommate watching L&O-SVU. Bored. Caffeinated.

You have a couch guy? As in a guy you buy all your couches from? How many couches do you buy that you have a couch guy?

Also, what's with the Baby Eagle fixation? I'd rather have a Sig or an H&K...heck even a Glock.
