I noticed someone mentioned Michelin PSS. I can confirm they are very chunky. I managed to squeeze 265/35/18 on 18x9.5 ET45 in the back but it took some fender rolling and bumper trimming.

Put some masking tape on the inside of the fender AND the bumper to find out where it rubs. On my touring the bumper was more of a problem than the fender.
I'm running 265/35/18 on 18x9.5 ET45 rim.

You can swap in a 330 engine for about $2000. That's way cheaper than any supercharger.

Doesn't matter. It's nicely optioned 330 with most likely OEM Mtech bumpers, the right number of pedals for good price.

For anyone intersted in the swap - yes it is easy. Whether it's worth it is very personal decision. It was worth it for me because they didn't bring 330 tourings to North America.

Trade: Full size spare (16x7 rim with good tire) for your donut spare tire.

I'm not sure if any model e46 in Canada came with the space saving donut or if they all came with full spare.
In case someone has the donut spare and wants to trade I would pay $50 and give you my...

Yeah, I did it. Not difficult, just tedious. Can't give feedback on the effect as I did it to used engine as preventative maintenance before I installed it in the car.

No, I was replying to the dude in the USA where we didn't get the 330 model. I meant a M54B30 swap, you can get a decent one that's been compression tested for less than $2K. (link in the signature).

It's surprisingly simple to swap the engine especially if your car is already manual. I did it with no previous experience.
