yes, springs. You don't want to be able to fist your front fender. Just a finger or so

Also, if you can swing it, shocks to match springs.

Some bang for buck upgrades...
1. Good tires
2. Chip
3. Lowering springs
4. Poly Bushings
5. SS Brake Lines

Thanks menoo, looking into them. Also not sure if anyone else encounters this problem during the winter but doors and windows will not work when below freezing point. 30degrees Fahrenheit... Would assume this is an electrical problem but living in new england, you could only imagine the frustration of not being able to lock/unlock your doors. And no fresh air

Very common issue, bad solder joints in the GM module reflow the board or replace the GM

It controls the windows, locks, interior lighting and other things. You can get a General Module(GM) online like on ebay, or sellers on here like South26. If you find one, the best one has the part number ending in 571

That's a perfect red for the car. The wheels are a great choice as well. I've got a '94 530i (black on black) and am looking to lower at least the front and get a 17" wheel. You nailed it for an e34. Nice job!

I love the wheels. What size? I'm looking at 17"x 8" for my 530. I want to lower it with a Bavauto spring kit and then get the wheel/tire combo to suit it. Got any advice? I don't want to go too big or too much bling.
