which wheels did you get?

With black interior you can do 15% all around or 30 % if you dont like it too dark. I wouldnt do limo though, too dark for my liking.

Congrats! I have 17mm rear and 12.5 front from Turner Motor Sports. Don't forget to buy the longer studs.

^ I agree. (12mm front & 15-18 rear) Although, I'd only put the spacers on the front if your going to lower it. Check out BMS: http://burgertuning.com/BMW_wheel_spacers.html

Thanks everyone! The car has been great so far. Unfortunately, I travel quite a bit for work (like now) so I haven't been able to enjoy it as much as I want.

Anyone with Dinan suspension upgrades care to chime in on the handling improvements? Can't stand the bigger gap between the front wheels and fenders. Also want to reduce the body roll but don't want the ride to be harsher.

Hey stupor, I can't speak for the Dinan suspension upgrades, however, I did order the BMW Performance suspension with my car and the handling is night and day. I still have a pretty good wheel gap in he front, but the handling makes this a non-issue for me. Plus, I didn't want to drop the car too much as I already own a slammed T/A and have had major issues grinding on stuff.... Good luck on your decision!

can't be 100% sure due to the audio recording but it sounds like a stock exhaust at cold start with maybe the golf tee mod being utilized.... imho

That's dasano18's car, he had the PROcede installed and the car was running on Map 3 (naturally aspirated mode). Where the turbos are disabled.

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=647425


Here's a quote from his post.

"The funny thing was that since the city was so small and tightly packed with no where to speed i decided to put it into map 3 or the naturally aspirated map in procede. My god this thing sounds like a beast when those waste gates close. I said to David “if i cant drive fast and ill never have the kind of money to play around in this town, i might as well be loud and obnoxious while im here lol”. Funny thing was in map 3 the car really turned heads. The burbles of the engine and the high pitched sounds really got people reaching for their cameras to take some pictures. This was shocking to me given the fact that there were plenty of much nicer cars than mine around."

BMS Wheel Spacers on 335IS

Installed spacers today on a whim. If Burger was so darn quick with shipping I may not have done it. Stock 335IS with 19" 313s. You can see before and after (12MM on ront and 15MM on rear). Quick spin around the block and no rubbing detected but I'll watch it closely for a while. Easy as pie.

Hey stupor, how does it look with the fender gap in front? I can't really tell from the pics too well. I have the performance suspension on mine which has a small drop in the front but very mimimal so mine would look similiar to yours if i use the same spacers.....

I have had zero rubbing issues.

stupordave, do you have any front shots?

Is your BMW Performance Suspension the new version with the yellow springs? Do you still have RFTs and how is the ride?

Been driving on stock suspension and 15mm in rear and no issues. Going to try 12mm Front and 18mm rear. Tried 15 front but it was too much poke for me.
