    im just about ready to lower the black car. i have:
    -billy sports
    -cosmo coils
    -rear shock mounts
    -front upper strut mounts
    -urethane TAB's
    -urethane diff mount bushings
    -urethane subframe bushings.

    the car already has urethane CAB's, but i think i blew out a ball joint or something. i haven't been driving it because the steering is all crazy and scary. i don't have any wheels to put on the car though..

    Fuji, Canon, Minolta.

    -Bought the car dirt cheap from a small dealer that had no idea what he had (needed a lot of tlc) $50 worth of plastic welder and paint, $12 in upholstery dye
    -AMG springs installed back in the 80's in Germany, I put in $20 shortened spring pads
    -I refinished the AMG splits myself, already had the paint, $100 for OZ wheel tools. $200 set of Federal tires.
    Lots of blood, sweat, and time.

    To the BMW guys with cut springs, what shocks do you run? I need low ASAP, but been quoted 800 euros ($850-900) for a new set of bilstein sports.

    Bought used complete suspension with less than 3k on them (Bilstein/Eibach's)

    Tires will be changed soon, but $100 (local enthusiast) for all 4 wasn't a bad deal to get the O.Z.'s on the car to get an idea of width.

    Might be swapping another member for coilovers soon, and getting 215 & 235/40's to replace what's on here now. I can't wait.

    Mirrors, front bumper cover and headlights were around $400 all together. With paint and install by us.

    Been trying to save up for Springs/Coilovers. Just had my pinion seal take a crap on me, so I decided to go ahead and put 4.10's in while it's getting fixed. There goes my money...again lol. Thinking about just cutting the stock springs I have laying around and seeing how it sits by doing that. Currently I have vogtland springs. Wheels are 18x10 +40 all around
