More pictures please.
Then we can help.
I like the front end as it is, maybe some eventual changes (bumper?)

Looks great though!

visually I'd start with a drop and some wheels, maybe a tint. Since it's a 318 I have no idea what mods are available motor wise

Other than rims I think it needs clears, a drop, and M bumpers and it would look great

Finally got my 323is out of storage and almost ready for summer. I'm still trying to decide on some new wheels and the trim piece to replace the front license plate is on the way and should be here soon.

Im not from Cali, but you might wanna get the springs and struts installed at the same time, that way it wont cost you as much, especially with the alignment.

What type of H&Rs do you have? OE, sport, race?

I just installed bilsteins with H&R sports, but now I wish I went with something lower.

Garret, looks sick bro. yea, I'd also change the shocks at the same time. My PO made a big mistake doing that, now my shocks are blown .

Garage Works in Vallejo is a good shop. I know the guy and he just opened his shop.

i think you're car is beautiful the way it is now, if you were to go lower it would be too tough to avoid potholes etc... but i hope i can paint my car red soon. how much did it run you to install springs and struts?
