Just a couple of shots when the BBS rims were on. The roof rack has since been stored because of bad gas milage. The only change was of the Softlines wrapped in new rubber and the addition of 15mm H&Rs at the rear.

Doctor your car looks great with those rims, it also looks like you tinted the turn signals? How did you do it?
WhiteyWagon yours looks fantastic too, good to see some more wagons on here lately! What is your suspension set up?

Damen - Thanks, and yes, I tinted the rear indicators and all the front lights using a film called Lamin-x which you just stick on and carefully cut round the edges with a scalpel. I don't think they supply to the general public anymore but there are other equivalents on eBay no doubt.

Hi damen, I'm running a/c schnitzer lowering springs up front and stock springs out back. There was no need to lower the rear because the tourings are inherently heavy there.

I have a wagon as well and am looking to get the front end down a bit as well. I was looking into vogtland springs and boge shocks for the front, it seems they are a good combo for a nice ride without being harsh. I am wanting to keep as much comfort as possible when I drop it since it nothing more than a daily driver and road trip car. How does yours ride compared to stock? You have got almost the exact front height I am looking to get when I drop it.
Did your car come with the acs springs and if not where did you pick them up?

Doctor, I also have mine tinted, just not with Lamin-x. When I tinted mine I never thought to use lamin-x and wish I did now. I do have some lamin-x on order for other stuff right now though, it seems to be pretty good stuff.

my touring had vogtlands in there, if you drive like a normal person they will be fine, but if you drive spirtedly or track your car like i do, i found them too soft. I have a set (4 springs) here, low milage maybe 20-30,000kms on them, but shipping might be a curse.

I imagine shipping would be a bit of a pain and of course we all prefer new to used, but what would you let them go for? and would you have any idea on shipping cost? I have never shipped anything to or from NZ.. I found a brand new set that would be on my doorstep for 220 USD, that is probably what I would end up biting on relatively soon here unless I come across a better deal before then.

Yes, they came from Lativa. Pretty rare here. Although I am looking at a set of 19" Alpinas now.....
I was thinking that 19s were too big for our cars, but check them out on this B10 Touring!

I think 19s are too big on E34, 18" is the max.


but i would do all sorts of nasty and unforgivable things to have that car, if its real. VERY rare being a touring too, like mine.
