Very nice choice of mods! I really like the tekarbon headlights...very sexy!!! Wheels and drop are perfect. That arquay ti catback exhaust is bad a$$. How much was the alignmet from evasive? From the looks of the rear pic, it doesn't look like to much of a neg camber. I'm still suffering from excessive neg camber (going thru a set or rears each year), so I'm looking for a good place to align my tires.

thank you for your comments=]

evasive charged me 320$ for both coilover install ( yeah, i was being lazy that day) and alignment, that being said though, its around 100-120 for alignment

if i remember right i have about -2.2 in the rears, not substantial, but at my height with those m3 offset rims i was mildly rubbing on big bumps or hard turns.

i actually have my fenders rolled and now they don't rub at all.

ideally i'd get alignment from westend, but the business and work is so prestigious that appointments run for about 2 month waiting time, evasive was much sooner and offered both installation services and alignment.


*edit since you're suffering from too much neg camber wear, you should either

1) get your fenders rolled, i can rep a guy that has rolled hundreds of s2000 fenders that also did mine just a couple days ago or
2) drive/corner faster ;] so you can have even tire wear LOL get back to me if you can do this on the streets or
3) run thinner tires.

More pics please! My AWMC is in the shop as we speak having some similar mods done. I am actually having the roof painted BMW Jet Black and the lower front painted in JB as well. Looks perfect on the AW IMO.

Looks pretty interesting. I'd like to see more pictures of the headlights without the lights on.

Looks clean, not sure how I feel about the black roof. BTW looks like your front reflectors are sitting flush with the bumper. What did you use to install them?

Horrible offsets + stretched tires = failage! The formula on your first post was perfect.

haha guys its just a test fit for funs and giggles.

i probably won't get another set of rims for another half a year, that was purely for entertainment

my fenders are rolled/mildly pulled in the front and rear

-1.8 in the front? or something and -2.5 in the rear for camber settings

stretched tires are definitely a preference type of thing, but imo, as long as i can run tires way larger than stock sizes im happy. i just happen to love deep dish lips.

and i actually hate the hellaflush term..

thanks for the comments=] good or bad.

ideally, my dream rims are 19 inch 3 piece work meisters. droooooool

hmm i actually did not even drive the car on those rims. those rims actually came off my buddies 335i

19 x 8.5 +30 in the front and 19 x 10.5 + 30 in the rear.

i was getting my fender work done and i decided to throw on the rear setup in the front just for shits and giggles

mainly to see what sizes FIT and don't fit

these are obviously too aggressive for the fronts, but hey, tbh, i want something a bit more aggressive than my vmr atm.

the stock vmr/e46 m3 offsets looks great, but i'd want a wider rim in the future with slightly lower offsets.

^ ideally i want offsets and rim similar to these: prolly a bit more aggressive in the front. but the rears look perfect imo.

those meisters look like the hotness... too bad front fitment is limited =/
if/when you plan to go meisters, do you have any ideas on sizes and offsets?
