I also want them but I'm not going to. As per Dave's thread, I too am feeling rather unbothered with the mods. Although I'm now getting the most I've ever had done to a car, I often have moments where I think, can I really be 'arsed'.

With plans to buy a property this year, this spending does need to stop and VERY soon!

On another note, I've got 1 week to decide on my tyre set up lol.

Hmmmm.....

Turn in is massively improved,and the M3 thingymajigs (official OEM term) are a must have with coilovers,I'd also recommend a Eibach/M3/or similar ARB,but it's not my money,but I love spending others

So,just crack on with it Sam
Thanks Ian - really appreciate it. I'll now look into these aformentioned tyre set up. Would love to also buy the M3 arms but it's not helping to shave any costs that aren't necessary. I know they will dramatically improve handling but if I do everything now, I won't have much to look forward to lol

Steadily pace myself. In under 1 year I'll have done a hell of a lot to this car so I'll take it easy once Dips is done with it and enjoy the show season.

May revert back to you with tyre set up in a couple of weeks

Danke Sumil. Ill be looking forward to it no doubt.

More I think about getting 235/30/19s for the 10j rears, the more I'm put off, for the simple fact that I don't now like the look of such a stretch. Since I'm going to have the arches rolled, I maybe as well get 255/30 let's say, still have a bit of stretch but also have good overall contact! It'll also help to fill more of the arch!

Any objections? Lol.

I have 265 on a 10.5 and I think it offers the right combo of stretch and performance.

I should have gone with 225 on my 8.5 front... But I went with 235 to handle the massive potholes

Ah, interesting. Well tbh it's a good enough reason to update the tyre size to avoid potholes!
