No I don't want to roll my fenders. I don't want to go that aggressive.

Are you talking about Project355i?

I was talking to Mohammed from Alpha Motorsports about grabbing some Macht Schnell Spacers with the black lugs.

Use vac for spacers. They make and sell, so the price is good.

http://store.vacmotorsports.com/vac-...-of-2-p70.aspx

I have toured the shop and purchased a set. Very nice quality.

I am trying to go local, the suspense of seeing the wheels on my car is killing me so I might try to be brave and throw them on this Monday if I can source some spacers. I guess if we get hit with snow I'll just have to work from home.

I asked him to chime in on my thread, if he has stock might go with him, haven't been able to get ahold of Alpha recently.

Thanks John. Btw we should setup a D meet soon.

There's a set of these off an m3 at YOWS right now and the color is fantastic. It's almost a deep metallic gray...love it. Gonna look slick on the blue!

Sounds good man. I'd be ready for a D meet towards the end of April. Any time after that works too.

Put the JBD on last week, and my new wheels (Alufelgen SF-71 in Titanium Gunmetal) came in yesterday. End of next week, I'll order my PSS's from Costco (waiting so I can take advantage of the $70 off I expect to start on April 8th) and get them mounted.

Good evening all.

Can you guys take a look at this? http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=461718

On page two there is a good pic of the 335d. Looking for clarification if its easy to access the one, main, central lift points for each F / R.

This thread I linked above has some good pics. Cheers.

It would depend on how low your car is dropped on coils, etc. Mine is almost always on the lift from the sides.

What are you looking to get done by using the front and rear lift areas?

I'm about to swap out my sport steering wheel for an m-sport with a CF trim next week. I'm also swapping out my current CF front splitters with new ones because they've been beat up pretty bad for the past year and the fitment was never any good. So much moolah down the drain from modding!

So you know, if anyone wants first dibs on a sport steering wheel (OEM & CF trim included but multi-function buttons, paddle shifters & airbag not included) before I throw it out on the marketplace soon, let me know!
