    I am Steve; 74 years old and owner of 1995 BMW 525it with 242k miles. I also have a donor car BMW 1995 525i manual 210k miles. My first BMW was a tan 1600 many years ago; I loved that thing.
    Now that I am retired and have time I decided to return to my first love. So, I am in the midst of repairing and updating and converting the touring for a manual dd. So far I have rebuilt the front suspension except for springs, shocks and mounts. I can't decide between the non adj Koni and Billstein; whether or not to replace springs - I would like an inch drop but not enough to spend $$$.

    I have justed started the removal of parts from the donor.

    I have lots of questions but am trying to do searches before asking; but I do hope for some inputs from experienced hands. Thanks. Steve
