But this is my wish list so it is still future

With your suspension mods what is the weakest point of your e82? I mean unexpected oversteer, understeer, jumping away from track on turn, or something else specific?
I think at the time, my weakest point was my rear subframe bushings. On the track under hard braking I would get "tail happy" and it really bothered me because I did not want to get sideways going into a turn and lose it. With the setup I have I was able to eliminate most of the under/oversteer that was known for our cars and also keep more of a level balance front to rear.

I am still on the fence for coilovers but those I know will eventually come someday. Right now I am very satisfied with what i've done with the suspension.
