After 570 miles in the first two days with the M3, I don't think it is hard to drive the SMG smoothly at all, at least not in S mode (I use S5 most of the time, shifting before 5,000 to keep it under...

I wonder if anyone has tried to mount one on their dash, perhaps on top of the passengerside airbag cover? :dunno:

Exactly what I was wondering. They did a real nice job with the shifter styling - it looks sweet.

Keep going at that speed and in less than 3 weeks you'll have 150000 on the odo. I can't wait to see that picture :)

Re: Question about wheel/tires size for 03 M3.

I would think it depends on what you are trying to achieve. Are your goals more aesthetic or performance oriented? It seems like going to an even greater front to rear disparity as compared to...

Thanks, but this wouldn't be an option for me. I am trying to decide what I could do with the 19" wheels that come with the M3. It looks like 245 35 19 and 275 30 19 would work, but I'd still like...

Hmmm, even 255f 275r would be getting closer. I'm surprised there isn't a lot of experience with this here. You would think the Tire Rack guys would at least know.

LOL, it is on the left. If they cut another one they'd increase the drag coefficient.

Not sure what he means, but the Porshe (at least the 911T) puts the majority of the power to the rear wheels, as opposed to say an Audi Quattro, which is 50:50. Why Porsche even bothers with any...

Replacement Tires for M3 (19")??

What are the maximum sizes that will fit properly on the stock wheels?

Will they handle 265s front and 275s rear? Has anyone tried this? If so, does it balance the handling out or make the M3...

1200 or 1250 miles I think - the dealer should know what to do. That is the break in period. You might want to read your owner's manual.

Ok, so the idea is that your warrantee expires 1 or 2 percent earlier than it should? Now that makes sense :(

I agree 100 percent. I for one debadged completely for the look. It wasn't to hide anything. I think all of the rear badges are ugly, from the 323 to the M3, but that is just my opinion.

Interesting. Have you played with it in the snow much. Does it start to oversteer if you disable ABS and lift the throttle in a corner?

Re: Opinions, BMW NAV or ALPINE?

The advantage of the BMW system is that it is a nice and clean installation. If you go aftermarket, you can probably get something equally clean with better sound but will have to spend big bucks...

Yeah, I have a lot of time driving Quattos and I agree with what you are saying. A Quattro with similar power to the M3 simply puts it down. In the snow for example, the traction (with good snow...
