Suspension, Brakes and Wheels
UUC Performance Springs:
I had the UUC springs installed to improve the overall and to reduce the amount of body roll that ... Show moreis characteristic of these model BMWs. The result was superb handling and increased driving pleasure. Now I smile at the thought of driving anywhere. Front Lowered = 1.5" Rear Lowered = 1.4"
Bilstein HD Shocks:
The Bilstein shocks were installed with the UUC springs which saved big $$$$ because you don't want to have to do the suspension twice on these vehicles.
Rear Sway Bar Upgrade:
The stock sway bar was replaced with a 13mm sway bar (Euro OEM for rough roads) to improve performance handling.
More on this later with some close up install pics. Stay tuned.

SuperBlue Brake Fluid
Painted Caliper Housing:
Strong Strut Tower Bar:
The Strong Strut Bar replaced the previously installed Bavarian Strut bar. This unit is constructed of forged steel and greatly reduces the body flex at the strut towers. Handling is much tighter with the addition of this bar and the chrome finish gives the engine bay that extra eye candy look.
