As said much earlier, there are just two O2 sensors on our cars as compared to the M3 and 328(?). Replace one or both and your codes should go away if they're O2 related.

If price is an issue, why not just use his front springs, too? You would need new upper mounts, but that's cheaper than buying new/used springs.

Will do. Their ad is compelling, but not sure whether it's BS or actual. Does make sense that technology has advanced since the 90's, though.

Yes, you have to drill a 7/8" hole. You feed the wires through that and use the rubber grommet to seal up the hole/wires.

To say the least...

They should combine or cross reference the H1 install kit instructions with the enclosure install instructions, and then add in more detail.

Cheaper to just buy an M3 if that's what you really want. If you just want to upgrade the suspension so it handles better than an M, that's doable! An engine swap is pricey and pretty difficult.
