    e34 530i - lowering

    Just an update in case other want to know. We ordered a setup from, LowTec 45/30 drop. Combined with a set of 18" (staggered) M-Parallels. Parts took about a month to arrive in Canada from Europe and we installed about 2 weeks ago. So far we are happy with the results and will see where she finally settles.
  2. Hello, Going thru and baselining our 95 e34 530iT (Canadian car with DRL), part of things on the to do list is take a look at improving the low beam performance. Just getting my feet wet on this topic and wanted to hear from others what they have found to be a worthwhile change. While it had been suggested to replace to replace the low beam units adapting in a Morimoto (or similar ) projector unit, I would like to keep the look of the e34. I was planning to at the bare minimum to replace the current lamp assemblies with OEM hella units and some new bulbs (HB4) What would be the suggested upgrade path ? 1) use the existing housings and replace the bulb with some form of HID bulb (4500k ?) 2) use the existing housings and use a different halogen bulb? 3) Something else I should consider? And then some form of high beam improvement for those really dark night time drives? Thanks for reading

    Hello, 1st post, new to e34's and first touring. Recently sold e28 533i to make way for the Touring. The new car is a 95 530i auto with M60b30 engine. I'm located in Canada and this is a non-SLS car. Wanting to drop the car to close the gaps but finding availability of springs in N/A (so far) not listed - so looking to Europe as Touring's appear to be more popular. Suggestions for what is currently available (H&R, Bilstein) and online shops (PM regarding shops please). Thank you
