  1. Sticky: Hey 427Chevy,

  2. Sticky: Hey Ted and Andrew....

    If you are going to start "sharing" the cost for modifications, count me IN, I can send you my Wish List and we can get started right away!!!!:rotflmao::thumbsup:
  3. Sticky: The OEM sways are at a point (relative to Dinan)...

    The OEM sways are at a point (relative to Dinan) in the longest position. This OEM setup is designed to give maximum understeer to the car when combined with the staggered tire fitment. Reason: so...

    by posting the BMW / Alpina parts numbers for the entire set up as well as an estimated cost for the parts to make it easy for anyone to follow in your footsteps?

    Andrew, do you still have your...
  10. Sticky: Wish I could attend but you fellas have fun!

    Ted, the car looks great! I am not a particular fan of the Alpina wheels but on your blue car -- looks awesome. Glad the ride and handling are improved to you satisfaction.

    Andrew, curious how...
