Group buy??

Do you want to save more money? Sure, we all do!
Here's how!

An e36 related group buy! A group buy soooo great that Ron Popeil is endorsing it!

Make suggestions and I'll set it up.

How about mishimoto rads or some adjustable rear trailing arms? Maybe sway bar kits also?
I'm looking for those...
Let me know

I'd be down for some adjustable rear lower control arms. Which ones can you get? I've been meaning to get the turner ones for a while.. maybe some euro floating rotors too.

Hi guys, I can get eibach for a decent price. It can adjust from +3 to -1.

I'm running them right now and I'm at -2.5 in the rear.

I can do 225$ shipped

Thats a pretty good price. I might just get in on that. This is the last link missing in my rear suspension. I have replaced everything else...

I'm assuming you mean these? (Eibach pro-alignment kit)



If so, do they have replaceable inner bushings like the Turner arms do? Thats a big selling point considering you would have to scrap the whole arm otherwise.

Wow.... No not those. Not even if I stole them could I sell those for 225$

Those would be closer to 315$ after tax.

Yes. Those, but I can get the pro kit ones as well for 90$ more

Should I set it up then?

BimmerBoys, are you currently running these same arms? These are a very interesting option. I had no idea these existed before I looked them up just now.

They look strong, and they are cheap. They are a little heavy, about 6.5lbs each according to one of the members on bimmerforums, which makes them about twice as heavy as the flimsy stock arms (Turner arms are about 2.5lbs for comparison) but not sure that matters at this price because they also cost half what the Turner arms cost.

I found an interesting thread on them... Eibach rear lower control arms Go to post #103. They talk about needing some sort of shims on the inner bushing between the metal sleeve and the subframe tabs.

I wonder if anyone on here has seen or used these things. I'm interested, but I need to know more. Also, I would still like an outer bushing that is replaceable. This one looks like it is, but it would be nice to know for sure.

Hey I'm running the pro kit on my 328is but I have had the above arms on my old 318i.
I never had a problem with them, infact I like them better! The dip shit at muffler man stripped the thread on my pro kit which are aluminum. The above item is steal. Much more durable. And they offer the same adjustability as the other kits

I'd be interested in the ones above. Funny I almost pulled the trigger on a set of adjustable arms last week to help prolong the life of my new T1R's
