Hey sorry about that guys!

1997 M3 from Long Island New York. 104k Miles. Estoril Blue. Black Interior

Stock for the most part besides Bilstein HD shocks / Ebay intake and exhaust it looks like / Hawk HP Plus Pads / Turner Sways / Hankook RS4s

Making it into my new track car for HPDE in NASA NE & maybe some light autox. I had a Miata before so really enjoying the power. So right now looking into getting some decent suspension and wider wheels.

Anyone have suggestions on a good decent track suspension that wont break the bank too much. I was looking into KW Clubsports. I know some people that have these on other cars and really seem to like them.

We race with the setup from TC Kline.
TC is a great resource for us, he races his own E36 and will likely be the one picking up the phone when you call.
The kit was simple to install and then adjust.
Well-made components and good instructions.

We race at NJMP in 2 weeks if you want to see it.
