They don't specify the years and models (coupe-sedan)

The E46 is a pretty good handling chassis. A decent set of coilovers and sway bars and you'd be hard pressed to find another car out on the street that can handle better/more predictably/more precisely.


Just my two cents.

Do you know around when the results will be up/in? I'm interested in the results... and reserving my opinion until then.

well i know a lot of people that bought their car when they had a high paying job pre-recession. if someone is broke, laid off ect and need a cheap fix to keep going, this could be an option.

NONONonononoo. I meant like a e46 with a good coilover set-up, not RL.

Should have specified, sorry.
