In Reply to: Aftermarket suspension upgrade? posted by BDA on December 31, 1998 at 13:30:47:

: Got my 323i with premium pkg, now wish I had sports suspension. My dealer wants $1800 to swap the springs, stabilizers, and struts! Any suggestions for a cheaper way to improve handling without voiding warranty?
: (I know, learn to drive - I'm working on that too!)

: tnx - bda

I would pass on the suspension upgrade and get an aftermarket setup which is what I did. I was able to get a set of H&R springs with Bilsteins and Racing Dynamics Sway bar for about $780. The car looks much better (lowered about an inch) and handles far better than the stock sport suspension. Good luck
