Dragonfly2k3s e36... massive pic update page 2.

So. After a long line of civics, etc I bought a jeep. I was coming over the platt bridge, and there was a grand marquis stopped in the lane with no lights on(at about 2:15am) on a rainy night, regardless, jeep was no more.

I got the call that I was getting 5700 for my jeep, and decided it was time to get back into something fun. The requirements were that it had to be rwd, fun to drive, and look great. I do not like 240s, so this left me with...



My 98 328is. 5sp, tan leather interior. 84k original miles, with a clean carfax. So far, Im lovin it. Since the pictures, I replaced the missing piece of molding, and acquired a plateless center piece. More pics, and more mods are in the very near future.




Update #1: I need to drop it. I have been taking advice from twas and looking for bilstein pss9's. However, I live in west philly, and cant go slammed. I think H&R race will be more than low enough for my needs. Sooo, now, If I buy springs/struts, do I upgrade to M endlinks and shocks?

UPDATE:
Ok, so, as Ive stated I ordered KW V1 coilovers, Now I want to order bushings to go with. I decided to prioritize, right now Im ordering front and rear control arm bushings. Poly? Rubber? Delrin?

Please don't dump it.

Car looks awesome, man. I'm blown away for how cheaply 328's are going these days.

+1 to not dumping. Nice E36 though, I hear they are great platforms for handling and are built pretty damn solid.

Props.

Its getting lowered, but not to the point of being "dumped" I may buy a cheap set of coilovers just to dump it for fun, but the final set-up will prob be a nice matched set of spring/shock.

I had Bilstein PSS9's on my 328 and loved them. I'm considering getting them again for the M. You should check them out.

Nice pick-up by the way. It looks super clean.
