Any E92's interested in my friend's M3 skirts? They're primed and ready for paint.

If you don't mind the shipping, I've see some cheap ones in the classifieds. Or get the VRSF one. Cheap and just as good.

Famous Last words...Modding cars is an addiction. It's like telling a drug addict to switch drugs, but not get addicted and always wanting more.

I was actually searching for something to replace my 335i, and the only thing that really has everything this car has, but at the next level is a used 911 Turbo or the GTR, but both even used are around the 60-80k Range. Hence I opted for modding my E92.

Where's the most likely place that can cut my rear fenders properly? And most reasonable price? Mine are already rolled but I want to go lower on offset with spacers.

I don't think so. Maybe it's because of the power but I don't think they are as good as the reviews say. I'm looking at the rs3s or something in that category next summer

Well the Bay as been cold lately so that could be a factor. I had V12s on a car putting out 250whp/300whp 6MT FWD and it almost never broke loose at WOT without upgraded engine mounts. Of course this was summer and like 80*F+.

I'm sure they are better in summer and better on some cars but my torque is too much with these tires and I have a LSD and am running 275s in the rear. I'm going 285 next time
