Tell me if my logic is right. I have 12mm spacers with a 275 tire on my rear now . If I only use a 5mm spacer I should be able to jam a 285 in the rear right?

From my research those are the worst years for VANOS failures.

But also the only years with ZCP

Not sure the plan yet. An 05/06 ZCP will likely be $25k or more so not sure if I want $900 worth of car payments right off the bat. If I go to an M3 it'll likely replace the ZHP.


Or I can just SC the ZHP and whoop an M3's ass.

vanos is easy now that I've done it twice. $250 and problem fixed. Can't pay $250 and take a year of ownership off a car or miles. I'd go for a low miles 04 I suppose.

I'll buy ur 12mm spacers if you decide too. I'm curious as well if 285s will fit. I should have done 275 originally and not 265.
