Slamming may look cool to some but extremely impractical....The world is not a tabletop display area; a vehicle must be able to move over the roughness of the area it travels without scraping and dragging.

I have about 2inches of clearance from the chassis, and it scrapes all the time. lol. As long as you have the essentials tucked up good, all will be fine if you get the occasional scrape or drag across a speed bump, IMO

I like it!


I bet for some, it looks funny because the wheels look so small. 18s?
Would look much different if they were 20s

My model was the E36 and the one you saw at spring fest was my homie Shaun Quill's. We had very similar setups!

Your car is on point! Didn't it use to belong to another member on here from VA? If you feel like parting ways with, or parting out, your air ride setup, gimme a heads up

I agree, it kind of makes the car all-show and no-go, but I will admit I do like the look of that exhaust!

Guys this isn't the place to debate modded/stock.

Stick to the topic of OP's car, any off-topic posts will be deleted.
