      Constructive Criticism: I see that you've put a lot of effort into the car and I appreciate the hard work. Maybe consider putting on a decent suspension setup and raising the car to not compromise the suspension geometry. Next maybe consider putting wheels on that are the proper width and offset with an appropriately wider tire for more grip and better handling. Lastly, maybe consider adding a catalytic converter to your exhaust to make it street legal. We all appreciate your enthusiasm about the car but there are just a few constructive things that you can do to make it better because as it sits, I wouldn't be surprised if a stock E36 328 would be quicker on a track.

      Dude, go learn something about roll centers and what lowering a car outside of its optimal suspension settings can do to them.

      Stiffer doesn't always mean better when it comes to suspension. That poor M3 is probably damn near bouncing off its bumpstops.

      So they're admitting to being sheep, and not thinking for themselves. Kids are dumb, for any brand of car. It happens, and only increasing the value of clean examples.

      I agree, this sounds much better than OP's. The biggest issue with the OP's sound is that it has that horrible tin can rattle. If you lose that high pitch rattle and just had the low growl then it would be good. Just my opinion.

      To each their own. I just think it has a really unique raspy sound to it. I figured some people on here might be interested in what this exhaust combo sound like. Thank you to whoever offered constructive criticism. Hateful comments are not necessary.

      Holy raspy. Put a bigger magnaflow on there to eat up that rasp. What size is on there currently?

      As I'm not a fan of slammed cars, I'll reserve my comments on that end.

And these arent honda civic wheels??? They are BBS style 5's. civcs dont run 17 inch wheels, they run 15 inch rotas. Its not like he put a wing and a jdm bumper on his car lmao. He lowered it on coilovers, upgraded the exhuast, and nice wheels. Literally it doesnt even rub anyway and can be driven on any road. Its a very practical fun and fast car. Loosen up guys.

      BTW I like the cat picture.
      ill believe that it handles well when i see it auto-x

      you'd need a sweater in Hades long before that car ever sees a track of any sort.

      But he put a sporty suspension on it, it's obviously getting tracked.

      Yeah well in his defense the recommended setting on Bilstein coilovers (or at least the PSS) are pretty damn low. My E36 was at tire level front and rear with those settings.
