could always make one, or look up one for a "rally" e36, since they do use these cars as rally cars on the other side of the pond.

Sorry, I guess I am less than worthy, but why in the hell would you do that to your car?

Someone else will help you, plenty of "slammed" people here. I just want to know why you guys do it. Help an old man out. Why do you guys do this to your cars?

Because it's fun to get your car high-centered on a speed bump like a post turtle (Google it )

I don't get it either. Sometimes I feel like my car with the factory sport suspension is too low. This winter for example, I don't like plowing snow with a bmw haha. That's what the Jeep is for.

No offense if you're into that stanced stuff, it's your car not mine, but it's not for me.
