Nice Brandon might need to borrow that roller if my trusty baseball bat fails me.


I should be going 18x9.5 et30 245 all around within the next few months. Might run et 35 just to give me some more space, but i'm told with coils it's not an issue.



Hey someone give me some suggestions, this question needs to be answered.

Performance shop in Baton Rouge??

sorry nothing in baton rouge, everything are just your typical shops, or cater to the JDM community. But not to say they can't do it. I mean its down pipes...take off and install. for any shop that has a lift and the right tools it shouldn't be a hard task.

On your mark:
Flex your driving muscles behind the wheel of the all-new 3 Series Sedan at BMW Drive for Team USA. Then you’ll have the chance to test it against competitive models from automotive brands like Mercedes-Benz, Audi or Lexus. In the end, you’ll see for yourself that BMW comes out on top.

Get Set:
Every drive scheduled will help support Team USA. In addition, BMW will make a donation to the families of the U.S. Paralympic athletes on the BMW Performance Team to help them attend the Olympic and Paralympic Games in London. And many locations will feature a guest appearance from a Team USA member.

Go:

Peake is just now doing this? Brian Harris did this back last May. the $1000 off only applies for a limited time so unless you're gonna be purchasing in the near future I wouldn't put too much stock in it (if I remember correctly). And the test drives are rather mundane. But if you got nothing else to do it's a good time waster!

Yeah I did it last year in Los Angeles.. They just so happened to be at the dealership that day I was buying my car. My CA and I were doing the paper work debating the $1600 wheel and tire warranty when he said, wait go test drive that 6series and come right back... That paid for the warranty lol


My Aunt drives a 10 year old SUV... Her boss has an X6M and she wants one so bad, this might be the push into BMW for her

Nice I thought about pulling them or cutting the inside to run wider tires, as long as it looks like it came like that, but the real plan would be to just run it as is (I actually prefer the look of 245's, rounded not stretched) and get E46 M3 fenders and cut/weld/paint for 265's. That's a long way away though

yeah the e46 fender graft is most likely in the future for me too, especially once the turbo set up is done. Since we are on the subject of tires Im in need of a 235/40/17 for test fit purposes, trying to find a decent size that will fit with my style 5s
235/45/17 fitment, im hoping they will fit with a little more pull and slightly smaller tire.

She drives Mr.Johns X6M a lot and thats what she wants. She knows its in the 100k+ range so we will see what she actually does. I signed her up to test drive a regular X5 with a much more reasonable price range but a girl wants what a girl wants lol

I've never driven one but I would be interested in seeing how much cargo space they have in them. Do they have much more space than a station wagon or a RAV4?
