    Hi all,

    So I thought I'd follow the trend and post some pics on some of the updates I'm 96 Evo coupe.

    I'm heading to brands hatch with a few friends so I finally got round to fitting H&R Race Springs. It's riding on standard shocks. As you can tell it was riding so high at the front:

    You can tell the springs size difference between stock:

    The car has a much better stance and it handles ace, feels a lot more tighter. I was complaining about the car creaking, it seems like that has gone too.

    As the keen eyed out of you can tell, some genius has smashed their door into my aluminium doors, its on the list of things to do!

    I've bought a Z3 1.9 rack and that should be fitted soon enough. Will keep you posted!

    I've got a list of parts to sell which I bought over excitedly:

    - H&R Supension - Struts and Springs (for E36 non M3 models)
    - Brand new oil cooler - still in box

    If anyone is heading to Brands Hatch on the 23rd of November it'll be good to meet!

    That Arctic Silver comes up clean under that car park lighting.

    That's a good looking car but if they're standard shocks in the rear you're going to either blow them or your strut towers out, that's far too low for stock shocks.

    Thanks all,

    Track day went great - although it was bloody wet and so it got a bit tail happy!

    Thanks Nzm3n - its sitting a lot lower as it had full shopping kart worth of parts sitting in the boot including 2 spare tyres, a full set of suspension, a radiator and tools!

    It's out now and sitting a bit higher. Will look into Bilsteins as its got Sachs at the moment.

    Looked at the ARBs - the bushes are worn and the ARBs look like they deserve a change too.
