    Welp driving back down to Ga for the holidays and I hit yet another pothole right outside of Manassas, Va. The tire didn't stand a chance and left me frustrated with a cracked rear wheel, a blown front strut and a bent front wheel.

    Stay tuned for the suspension refresh... Coming sooner than later smdh. As I mentioned in another post elsewhere, I was pretty certain about going Koni, which is highly recommended here, but several people have asked me to reconsider Bilstein so now I'm conflicted.

    If your lowered or planning to lower, I wouldn’t recommend the bilstiens. The internal bumpstops bottom out pretty quick

    Those ///M sills should have come on the ZHP from the factory.

    Um for now I'm going to ignore it haha seems like it's just minor surface rust from water collecting beneath the sills. I did spray some quick sealant there before installing the M door sills so hopefully water won't continue to collect there. Eventually, in a year or so, I want to get some new bumpers and some paint/body work done so the rust will be addressed then.

    I just hope OEM bumpers and other parts will continue to be available. I'm sorta pressed because I feel like support for the e46 isn't going to last forever

    Agreed. Not sure why they wouldn't
