My car finally handles like it should. I was getting so tired of the ever so predictable understeer that occurs when the front bottoms out. It was the limiting factor in terms of really putting the car into a corner. My car is not even that low and has 300# springs up front- and I'm not even running r-comps right now (195 falken azenis) and it was still a problem.

Now its neutral enough that I can toss it into a corner and have that nice even drift thru the apex- get on the gas and the rear just comes out a little. And in hair pins I can get the rear to rotate by engine braking into the corner, cutting the wheel and getting on the gas. DAMN is it fun! I've been waiting to get this done for way too long.

No more front valance smashing, wince causing "BAM" when I come to a pot hole or sharp dip before a bridge or what have you.

So far anyone that has the car lowered at all- if you find that the front end pushes on tight corners or if your one that thinks that bilsteins are way stiff- put a ziptie on your shock and go for a drive. Take a look after and see how much travel you have used. My bet is that a good number of us with full length struts and lowered cars have this problem and don't even know it.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
