    Can I upgrade the e30 suspension using more modern design from an 135i.

    Serie 1 suspension transplant on an e30?

    I know I'll have to fabricate new support...

    I'm also planning an S52 swap 3.4l, S50 intake, sunbelt race cam ...

    Any advice?

    Its been done. Check out the Piper motorsport M3. There is also a youtube video of an install into a Z3. I am looking into doing the rear on my e30. While its not a simple swap, its not that complicated either. Moving the suspension technology 35 years ahead can offer big dividends, and I also enjoy doing these sort of projects.
