Talking I GOT SPRINGS!!

Well not really BUT, my parents decided to give me my Bday gift a little early. But i had told my parents that whatever i got for my Bday i was going to save up for my suspension upgrade. My dad had asked me how much the springs costed and i said around $200 bucks. So my mom gave me clothes and a new chain cuz my other one was getting old. And my dad gave me $225 dollars which will cover the springs. Now i just gotta come up money for the shocks.

Watch out guys cuz Hugo is gonna drop!

It doesn't need park distance control, and hates decadence. It is musclepacked, yet lightly wound. It lets you feel the asphalt and get you going with the smallest touch of the pedal. It provokes, seduces, and demands to be driven hard. It looks, sounds, and smells like performance.

Springs are cheap. You should have hit them up for the struts.

Yea im gonna go with H&R sport springs. 1.4 front and 1.0 rear is a nice drop for me. I dont wanna go anything lower.

Question is, what shocks should i go with now?

Bavuato = 1.25 front, but for some reason it looks lower on my car. Look at my avatar and other pics I post around or in the gallery possibly.

Just look for Bilstein Sports for the 318ti and your good. You don't need camber plates on a sport setup, but you need new rear shock mounts.
