Too bad that your BMW is not here in Dallas...or I would really want to check it out!!
Andy,

The car is a whole new car with the suspension and the 235/40/18 tires. I was getting ready to get rid of the car as it was a slow performer (handling wise) when compared to my previous A4 2.8 Quattro. To be very honest with you, I hated the car right after I got it, and that is why I went to the net, found this web site and I got the mod bug, because I wanted a better car. Now I don't want to sell it, it definitely has changed my mind. So the suspension is excellent, I would go with stage III if you do a lot of track time, as the only difference is the negative camber plates to the front suspension.

The drawback though, for some of course, is the fact that it does not lower your car that much, it lowers 1" front and 1/2" rear below the sport package as per the Dinan representative. I am waiting for the suspension to settle and then I will take new measurements on it.

Inline I got those wheels before knowing this board or any other board or people that would share interest on Bimmers, so I went to what I thought it was cool looking at the dealer catalog, after that I had discovered the site, and if I could go back in time then my choice would be different, right know, I am going to keep those wheels for a while, I am still uncertain on what I want to do with the car, I might get an M3, or I can go ahead and upgrade the brakes, and then get the SC from ESS. Looking on people's suggestion on this board, I guess that I am going for a body kit, then I will move to the brakes and Supercharger.
