Sweet thanks guys! Answered my questions.

Got the bumper fitted today, one of the mounts broke very easily once I slid it on. It was the passenger side slide in mount. Without any pressure it snapped off, but my friend gorilla glue fixed that problem for me! Haha everything is lined up now it's just time to pay out the a$$ for paint.

Ok our cars (andy and 99bimmer323 guy) are NOT ment to sound very deep...have u guys never heard a stock m3 at 6.5k? It's raspy. There's a reason it doesn't sound like a muscle car, because it isn't one of them...I like the deep tone in the beginning and rasp at the end, makes it so it sounds aggresive even if u arnt flooring it all the time. Maybe that's Just me but if I wanted a deep, non raspy tone I wouldn't have gotten a BMW...oh well. To each his own

Truely an I6 is one of the best configurations for an engine. Best balanced and all that. Bmw puts the money in to research and developement so we get good engines in the end.

I'm getting my wheels and tires on now... $60 ish for balance, $60ish for mount, wtf? Not cool... I'm at the goodyear on johnson drive... I should have just told him I have a 1982 ford probe or something lol

I thought you meant KC Trends told you $36 over the phone.

No, goodyear told me over the phone. I called
Hafkemeyer and he told me it would be $96 so I should just go to a tire shop. So I called goodyear and he said like $36...

Huge tires and tucking from the weight of my rims

235/35/17 all around

Yup. I think its cause the tread depth is soo deep on these.
I just didn't want to go through with summers again. I did it last year and I ended up being driven by mom a lot, and that's no fun.
As ryan an devak can attest to, summers try their hardest to kill me. With these tires I can do anything.
It sure handles like a cloud though!

Winter tires are definitely a must.

Yup, this is probably the best setup I could do. I see no point in having winter tires that are only half for winter and half for street so I went with studabble snow and ice and 235 squared so I could rotate them and keep the set for longer. Should be drivable in dang near anything I throw at it. The real test will be my driveway with like 5 inches of snow on it lol. (I have a hilly driveway)
