Hey, what suspension are you running in the rear. Mine is about that low and i may have 5mm or so more poke but do you rub at all. My fenders are factory rolled, not much more to roll though. I may need a sligt pull even.
  • What suspension are you running?
  • What size tire s and what size wheels (mainly offsets and widths)
  • Any fender roll/pull
  • do you rub like a woman's intimate toy, cause I do....

I'm on vogtland springs and Billie HD shocks.
Rear wheels are 17x9 et+6mm
Wrapped in 235/45 R17

I was surprised to. My father is the original owner and no fender work was ever done, its also a zero accident car, so no body shops or anything, but the fender is rolled. It's curled up into the well, no 90 degree elbow of metal...

I need to diagnose a HG and then if so (probable) replace said HG. i've been woring on the other two cars. This one is gathering dust. Its really quite sad. The plan was to finish the E28 sell it, and use that money to finish up the E34..

Well let me know what you need be it help or parts.
Though I dropped out the parts race (I have a new gig in NYC)
but I can still get parts for most bmw models. For the e28 as well.

E28 needs ABS sensors. And i'll probably need a HG for an M50 Vanos. Shoot me a PM, we'll talk...

those coilovers look identical to my XYZ ones, right down to the twist tie holding the little bushes in at the bottom of the rear ones. just different colour though. if they are, you are going to be inpressed by them. i went to those from Vogtlands and despite a heavier engine up front and more or less the same ride height, drives MUCH better now

Yeah they do require cutting and welding but I found a spare set of struts for $150. Gonna have to find someone to do the modifications, but everyone on bf.c has been impressed with them.

Picked up some sports seats a couple days ago. They are beat to hell and have twisting issues, but that is not a problem for me. I have new skins coming to me shortly and I have already dealt with the seat twist by shortening the worm cables. Only problem for me at the moment is to convert them to memory but I have read several DIY's on bf.c about how to do it. All that's stopping me at the moment is the fact that I need to find another updated memory seat to gut and use the wiring from (shouldn't be hard... Right?)

The photo was taken when I got them, since then the twist has been fixed.
