For now I'm going to leave the Bilstein Sports alone and just change the alignment settings. Once I get more seat time then maybe go to coil-overs. At this point I think it will be better to actually drive the car and gradually let it evolve. Last year at Road America (first time out there in 3 years with this car) I was afraid of the car and was not sure of its capabilities. I knew I was holding people up in the corners then hit the straights and they all disappeared. Poor BMW's. Just need to know the car and what it car do. Jeff
What dates were you at RA since I go every year with the Chicago region either Labor Day or Memorial day weekend?
I had my silver 79 930 there over Labor Day and thought the track was wierd with all the over passes and bridges removed after Canada corner.
That region runs a great event......maybe see you there this summer.
