and went with a bilstien H&R set up which works well on the track but is still nice for our crappy UK roads.
oh yeah and i havent got any trick engine mods to generate enough speed to require a v-trick suspension set up.
Boasting is not big or clever (so please don't take this the wrong way), but I took someone out in my car at a track day. He used to own an M3, we did about 6 laps. When he got out of the car he said it was probably the best handling M3 he had ever been in. He said even sitting in the passenger seat he could tell exactly what the car was doing. He now regrets selling his M3.......
It is a good setup but it won't suit everybody. It can be quite harsh if the roads are poor and if you don't track a lot it is probably not the setup for you.
ive been out in a car with this set up and it makes it grip like a ninja !! try talking to Will at geoff steel in the UK they use LEDA setups on there M3 race cars. they have a web site but i cat remember the address off hand.
I have about 2k to invest in suspension. I just picked up my aluminum control arms w/ offset bushings, rear sub frame bushings, and new front wheel bearings. I was thinking about going with coil overs. Any suggestions on the best spring and shock set up? What about the spring rates? Adjustable camber plates? I kinda have my heart set on coil overs. I just don't know enough about them. Any info would be greatly appriciated. I live in Germany so everyday is kinda like a track day. I want the set up toward the most aggressive side. Thanks to all who reply. And yes, driver's school is this summer! I'm a rookie, but I'm addicted to canyon carving!
