    Default '90 E32 750I with M70 engine on Style 5s

    This is my '90 E32. Already lowered 40mm on the front axle by H&R springs in conjunction with shortened Bilstein B8 dampers. These are installed since a week, body came down by 25mm so far. Needs to settle a bit, but I feel it needs to get lower still. Coilovers for this car are hard to find, especially with that heavy engine.
    If interested, I can post a build thread, starting in 2010 when I first got the car.

    you can use E34 coils requires some welding tho not much only on front, rear is just bolt in

    I don't think it will be that easy. The 750i has hydraulic height control at the rear with hydraulic dampers. On the front axle this might work though. Thanks for the hint.

    Bavauto i think it was that has a kit to remove the SLS (self leveling system) then you can just install those coils after doing that, glad to help ! I have a 92 735i I'm going to start building once I get back from deployment

    Yes, they do. I used it on mine when the SLS acted up. Went with all Eibach and Bilstein. I believe you can also buy adjustable end links to "trick the computer into allowing the rear end to be lower. I did that on my e39 Touring and it handled well and kept the utility of the self leveling rear.

    Mine was nowhere near as pretty as yours but I liked how it sat


    progress IS a slow process

    Camera is a Sony Alpha 65. Taking pictures of my car was a first for me, usually I create this kind of stuff from 3D models, as you saw from my behance profile.

    Wheels are BBS RC035 in 8x17 ET20 at the front, and BBS RC039 in 9x17 ET 26 at the rear. They came with the car as an optional extra and are very rare. Was asked this via PM.

    Will write a build thread.

    Rolling shot on the Autobahn. Front settled a bit, but it won't get any closer to the ground...
