I have a 1996 BMW 318ti base. I am thinking about getting the following items from BMPD. ANyone have any comments on them, if it sounds like a good set up let me know. If you think I should change part of it let me know. I won't be placing the order for a nother month or so, so please let me know what you think of the set up before then. thanks in advance guys!
The set up would be. . .

H&R Race springs with Bilstein shocks
Motorsport x-brace
27mm BMPD Front sway bar
17MM BMPD rear sway bar
and front strut bar

I will also be replacing just about all the bushings and what not on the car with the higher quality BMPD ones. Just want to hear your comments on the Set up. Oh, I heard that witht he Motorsport x-brace I don't need a front sway bar, is that true? Thanks again!

thats sounds good to me. If you have some low profile tires and some good tires at that would be nice. I put m3 front struts, m-coupe front springs, m3 rear springs, m3 x-brace, and have 225/40-18's and I have a blast outhandling e46 M3's(2001-present). You will get the same affect as i did.
