17" M-originals with wintertyres, looking for something for the summer...
Suspension: "M" original, why change the perfect..?
I read that they dyno between 215 and 220 hp without mods, but it is 197 hp/ 400nm on the paper.
Future Planned Modifications
Tempting with the ESS Stage2 software...
The earlier mentioned summerwheels are probably going to be BBS LM-R or CH 18" or 19" x 8,5" and 10". 235 fronts, 275/285 rears...
Since I stay with the original suspention (which is a bit lowered compared to the "Not-M-version") and don't go for even lower susp. it might look better with 18"s than 19"s, thus ridehight is a big issue in how big rimdiameter a car can take visually.
(Lower car looks better with bigger rimdiameter)
Performance is also better with smaller rims (less mass to accelerate and brake), so in that way I should have stayed with the 17"...
(ESS will more than compensate for that loss... )
