I planning on a 135i. The TTS looks really good too though. THe new z4 is awesome. If a 335i "ZHP" came out I would get that... I just don't want to buy the 135 and then have bmw come out with an upgraded version a bit later... I'm planning on buying in may/june; I'll be able to save a bit more by then too.

Ah cool, lol can we do that when we swap seats? I don't have a torque gun right now... For adjustment do you need a spring compressor?

I know you have to take the spring/perch outside of the control arm...

Sure, no problem.

I actually use the OEM jack to "widen/stretch" the angle of the control arm. The spring slides right out. Adjusting it out of the car is a piece of cake..
no compressor needed.
