Ah, shes NOT going to go looking for it, if she does, she joked that she'd need 30% commission/finders fee + all costs and shipping.
So if YOU find it, maybe she'll do it..

As for the springs i was thinking 500/650, not sure which has stiffer damping tho, the Eibach Pro street def rides better, yet corners flatter than the Cupkit.
Just hav to figure out a way to get more low out of the front. need a pair of shorter stiffer strut springs.

Dude offered me a good deal on these
http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=854234
but im not sure if they'll make the car sit any lower than it is already, and i dont want it to be so short i cant turn.. and he has yet to measure it at max extension for me so i know my range to compare it to.

What do you guys think?

My Ride: just an M3, sort of
you're only going for stance, so get the stanceworks ones. and tell her I cant read german, but most ebay UK stores ship here.\
you should wait to buy springs until after the s54 swap.

No doing no damn S54 swap. Lol.
Not gonna pay extra for stance works or any other coils if I can just make the front of mine lower.
If I do change suspension I'm going BC or Fortune.

Not even mentioning the efficiencies of larger countries.

I'll keep an eye out for the diffuser... its easy enough to search for, dunno about the other piece. 'E36 schnizter' is what I use, and 'E36 bbs' if they are name brands its pretty easy. Use the pictures and then Google translate for the rest of it.

BC's is where its at. Talked to Circuit Motorsports (the people I got my BC's from about the next step up in springs, I think I'll get them soon as well.)

I ///M back... (I am back) comes from BMW re-entering DTM. Took me a minute to get it tho.
No they dont make 323s anymore.

BCs are great but im trying to get the same design for less, and unless i catch a group buy when i have loot it wont happen. The Fortunes use a similar design, as a matter of fact, the stanceworks and boardwalk coilovers are made by fortune.
And Fortune is from NOVA too

So what is your guys input on a good looking lip for the stock pre-face coupe front bumpers. I would like to get one, but only see like two different ones out there.
