    I am comfortable with the reliability, I'm just looking for some reinforcement :o

    Car is a 525it with H&Rs, Bilsteins, new tires, etc. Pimp wagon.

    :cool:

    That's hot as long as no sway bars in it sounds like a pimp ride

    After market sways on bimmers don't always last long, some mounting welds break because the sways are to stiff.

    Best of luck

    don't look back. it was a GREAT decision. just put some clear lights on her, euro ellipsoids and a "classy" pair of 17"s or 18" m parallel replica's.

    ohhhh man, that would be so hot.

    post pics when you complete the following. haha
