Thread: E30 with custom air suspension (broken)

  1. #1

    Default E30 with custom air suspension (broken)

    Bought this car like 2-3 weeks ago. started dropping money into it the other day. figured, wtf, why not start a thread about it. so heres the deal

    1990 325i

    yesterday i ordered:
    - GC complete suspension kit
    - ellipsoids (so i can convert from sealed beam to HID)
    - black kidney grilles
    - making skid plates

    still need:
    - WHEELS!!

    not really doing much else to it. changed the radio so i can have ipod control. i need a new shift knob, maybe a steering wheel too. the front seats need to be refinished, but thats not a huge concern right now. anyways, heres some of the before shots. there will be lots of new ones through out the process. so stay tuned for updates.








    Threads I've made while doing research and asking questions. This might be of help to other people at some point.

    So basically what this means is that I really really really need to see your e30 now. Seeing as we are CT brothers.

    Oh for sure. Even though I probably shouldn't drink while I'm there considering I am 17 and have to drive hahah (unless I sleep in the trunk of the e30 ). Where in CT are you?

    +1i think this same thing all the time. i had sportmax's a few years ago and the greatest thing was not worrying about curbing, bending or any other damaging to the wheels. now all i have is genuine wheels and its a pain in the arse
