Hey everyone havn't shown any of my progress since i posted my newly bought bmw pictures. So I have had the car 6 months love it! Only problem i have had is a voltage regulator and cost me $40 for the part so no swet there. Since i bought the car i have installed front and side clears, blacked grill, red emblems, and newly purchased m3 rims(need smaller tires and fender rolling or rubs on bumps). So for quality only iphone pictures, waiting to do RCR Tails and debadge before high res pictures. So let me know what you think!

Sounds like you are on the right track. With a drop and roll, you'll be OK with those wheels. I've seen other members sporting them.

Looks good, it's coming along nice. Definately put cleared rear tails on the list.

Uhmmmm no you dont :hmm: something is wrong with your suspension if you're rubbing on stock non sport suspension ( or you don't know what rubbing is.) I'm running m3 wheels with 235's in the rear with sport suspension and I've never rubbed.

I know what rubbing is lol and m3's came stock with 255 rears which are on now. You sure you m3 rims are oem? Offset is like 20mm off from our's..
I didnt know 235's didnt rub since everyone with m3's on sedan iv seen have 225's... and im amazed you have "NEVER" Rubbed cause even with 225's iv hear rubbing is an issue...

yeah they're oem, 255's would explain rubbing, I bought mine with 235's already on them so IDK about 225's, but I just went and looked and if I went lower I might rub, not 100% positive though
