Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum and owning a BMW (I have actually yet to buy one but I have my heart set on doing so in the next couple months). I had a few questions before jumping into buying this 325Cic that I was looking at. Hopefully someone can help me.
I was wondering if it's possible to convert an e46 325Cic standard package to a sport package (or equivalent or better with aftermarket) with OEM and/or aftermarket parts? What would it take do do so?
I was thinking either Blistein or Koni shocks and springs. Is there anything you'd suggest to upgrade with them? Sway bars and maybe a stress bar? Can the strut towers handle extra stress from tighter suspension or are they built them same between packages?
-I was looking at the Koni FSD and noticed they were either for factory sport or factory standard suspension (that was what led me to think there might be something more to upgrade with the shocks and springs). Is there actually a difference between the ones designated for standard or sport?
As far as staggered wheels (A must in my eyes, I'd love to have that extra grip in the back) what kind of wheels should I get? Are there any aftermarket wheels that are lightweight without a solid gold price tag? Where can I find aftermarket or OEM rims?
I know that's quite a few questions to answer! Any input would be appreciated
