    Default Androc's 525D E39

    Hi all, i'm back!


    So, late summer, early august, and i decide to begin do stuff to my E39 that i had for almost a year..

    Its a 2000 525D, low milage, with a healthy engine.


    Got myself some Style 95's (19x9 19x10 +24) with 225/35 and 255/30.


    Also waiting for the freaking key's to the towing hook, i dont want permanently remove the hook, as i might use it in the future. But for now, it just has to look ugly with hook, lol.


    Vacation mode


    Finally in May/June, i got to afford some coilovers, Supersport Black Evolution.
    Started to mount these yesterday, and boy, what a difference!


    BUT!!!...... I desperately need spacers, really bad...
    This is so tight, its not drivable, the wheels are rubbing the coils



    And in all this, i found inspiration to start on my Civic again this winter, i just need to find a cheap car that i can strip for parts to make it road legal again, and save up for some fat ass wheels again, as i sold few of the "important" parts on it.

    Anyways, im out, gotta finish this bimmer and make it drivable again!

    So, finally got to mount the coilovers all around!
    Need some final adjustments though, lower in the back, and tad higher in the front, also gotta roll the fenders.
    Anyways, here's a picture!

    Thanks guys!
    As said, it needs adjustments here and there, and some good but cheap spacers are probably the next thing i have to buy. As these 5 dollar spacers are making my wheel shake like hell.

    Spamming some more pictures at you guys!

    Washed my car, mounted the new spacers i got today (2x10mm supersport hubcentric spacers), adjusted the hight a tiny bit, but when i dont have a proper "workspace" its hard to get the car straight, as you can see in the picture.
    And yeah.. Finally got to use my SW stickers that have been laying around since last september, lol

    Word. I wish I could have found a wagon but there is barely any in the united states.
    There's not enough room for subwoofers in a sedan

    Oh man, i cant wait to get the rear air suspension adjusted, get a proper hight all around!
    The front hight is now perfect though, and still drivable as a dayli, so it only remains to see how drivable it will be after the rear adjustments








    One day, that Civic is gonna roll out of that garage... one day!

    Thank you, glad you liked it!

    Did some "custom" work on the exhaust yesterday, not happy with the size of that exhaust at all, but it was something i bought earlier this summer on impulse, and did not really think of the size at all.

    Anyways, its only temperarely, and im gonna redo the whole exhaust system later this winter, and get something in the same style, only smaller

    You guys, simply dont give a flying fuck

    Anyways, after some minor brake issues, and fixing that, i finally got to lower the rear end
    Could not go as low as i wanted to, as i have to roll the fenders, wich i cant afford right now.
    But the car looks shitloads better lowered anyways, and guess 2014 will be a better year for this car
