The car already had the wheels when I bought it. They are 19 x 8.5 front and 19 x 9.5 rear. Tires are 235/35 and 265/30. I am not sure on the offsets since I couldn't find them stamped on the wheel. I do know that the wheels are at least three years old and based on how far in the front wheels are and how far out the rears are they may actually be the original e46 offset but like I said I am not sure. They are reps I am just not sure what kind. Some spacers for the front may be in my future.

I have no other suspension mods other than the front lowering perches. Unfortunately I do not have a broad side before picture because my brother was rushing me and I forgot.

Next mods are ur cai, er charge pipe with forge dvs and diy intake valve cleaning.

Updates.

Body colored grills


Oil change with fumoto valve and the inside of my BMS catch can.




There was only a very small bit of residue in the catch can but it was only installed for about 3k miles before the change. We'll see what it looks like in about 10k miles.

Spark Plug Change at 46k miles

UR Intake Install

You all know all about removing the cowl, stock intake and all that.

First step - Relocating the PS reservoir.



Hole opened up by relocating the reservoir.


Fender liner removed


The stock lower grill was only open for the brake duct but I found a discontinued stock replacement part that was completely open to feed more air to the intake




Intake installed


AFE air filter installed


Fender liner back in place


Installation complete

Nice job... keep it up, you've done a lot of detailed things (cup holders, vented grills, etc.).

Alignment

Noticed my rear tires were wearing a bit odd so took it in for an alignment. Sure enough it was bad. Unfortunately I didn't get this done soon enough because one of the rear tires bubbles all along the inner sidewall where the majority of the wear occurred. Hats off to the guys at IAG Performance (Subie shop) in Westminster, MD for doing my alignment and later mounting my new tires. Very professional and very good work.

Thanks all.

I did finally figure out that I have VMR VB3s so that mystery is solved.

Had the exact same issue with my alignment, and also the exact same wear of a rear tire on the inside. I can say that (at least on mine) the tire cupping has slowly gotten less noisy as the tire starts to wear more evenly. It probably won't go away completely, but it's at least tolerable. Nice car, OP!

Finally got around to posting some update pictures.

I did a DIY walnut shell blasting last summer.

Before pics. Cylinders 5 and 6 were definitely the worst.




After pics:




It wasn't perfect and I don't think I would ever do it again myself but this did solve my 5th-6th gear hesitation/stumble issue. Overall the car was/is much smoother after the cleaning.

While I had the car apart I installed a ER charge pipe and Forge DVs.

Did you rent a walnut blaster or do the DIY method with solvents that some guy posted up here?

I bought the cheap media blaster from harbor freight. Search the forums for DIY walnut blasting. I pretty much followed that. The summary is that it is a pain in the ass and next time I need this done I will probably pay someone to do it.
