I dont honestly know. Aside from the nitrous, No plans. I think I may get rid of all of my cars and start totally fresh. C6 Z06, F30 3-series. Or Maybe a B8 S4. I definitely need to do some rearranging...

Checking in

Checking in after a couple of months owning my BMW. I simply love this car. I cannot begin to compare any other car I have had to this one becasue it is a completely different playing field. I LOVE THIS CAR. Took it to the car wash today so it is nice and shiny.

Thanks. Sounds good on the meet. Was thinking of going lower with the wheels I have. Any suggestions? Would I need spacers to give it "the look?"

No not me. Didn't brave the wind last time. It was bad out here in NE. On a side note... I meant going to lower the suspension.

Like you wanna lower it, using the same wheels? If so, yes on spacers to get a great stance. Wheels will look flush with fenders... Just get a good measure do you know what size to order. I used my OEM wheels on my M5 and did spacers and the look came out great!

I have no clue what so ever. Will def try to be there for the next meet to soak up the sun and knowledge. Yes I do like the wheels I have now. Was pretty sold on spacers but don't know what to look for. Also on a drop, I am not looking for the rice look ofcourse. This is a DD for me. Up and over trans every day and back. My mod list if any, is mainly cosmetic. Was also interested in the angel eyes. Thanks again for answering me in the first place. I really appreciate it.

Oh ok, was wondering if it was or not as we couldn't find the owner lol... Yea the weather was terrible that day... on the suspension... Yup, you'll need spacers IF you want the wheels to sit flush to fenders better than OEM... Not necessary, but I like a more aggressive stance. To each is there own...

Ok I see... hmmm on spacers, pretty much just looking for a hub centric spacer and whatever size your car will safety allow for, without any rubbing issues later when lowered. Not sure what suspension is compatible with your vehicle, but I'm willing to bet a set of Eibachs would work well. I bought some from TireRack at a pretty good price... On the angel eyes. I went with some GP Thunders... best mod out there for the price in my book! Lights look just like OEM, but white! Eliminates the ugly yellowish look... Got them from **********s in a kit for I believe $40... Comes with halo and matching cornering lights too!

Javi,
I've got 18mm Rogue Engineering spacers in the rear. They look great and no rubbing issues. I've had them on my car for about 2 years.

Is your car lowered as well? Do you have any pics of the way it stands?
Thanks

Car isn't lowered. It currently sits on OEM sport suspension. Think I have a coupe of pics. I'll post them later.

Modding has already started I found a JB4 on Craigslist for 300 so I couldn't pass that up. I'm working on a deal for some LM-R reps and trying to figure out what to drop the car with.
