Those are ground control coil overs in the pictures. I have them on my car as well.

What spring rates are you getting?

Those Hartge's will look great on an e34.

do the camber plates make a world of difference on the handling? i'm still running the original suspension and its still feels like a go-kart. just wondering how much improvement can you get outta those.

btw, i'm using yellow adjustable koni's on my other E34 525i, yet the M5 still feels much much more chuck-able

i would say they do. I've added them to both my e34 and e39 m5 and feel they really sharpen up the turn-in ability of the car, and help with front tire wear as well.

Judging by the signature, it's a Eisenmann Race muffler. Looks like the 83mm tips.

The Dinan wheels are 17x9 with an offset of most likely +15 all around.
Current tires are 255/40/17, also all around. It completely changed turn-in and mid corner behavior, I love it.
