Nice man! I have been looking at doing something similar with mine, but was worried about having to roll or flare the fenders due to the fact that my ride is slightly lowered. Did you have to do either with yours?

Yes, it is rubbing a little and I am going to do some fenders rolling in the next couple of days. I try to give you some update with the progress. BTW I have Eibach pro kit and Bilstein.

Looks good! I would suggest to vinyl wrap the chrome window trim, it makes a world of difference.

Looks fat! If i ran these wheels on a non-M3 Coupe would they rub? What if i ran a 245/35 tyre on the rear?

How much did they set you back? What brand are they?

I have the fender rolled and it is alot better but I am still having problem when fully loaded with passengers at the back seats. It is hitting the rear bumper rubber when drove through dips during high speed or cornering but besides that it has no problem. I am planning on make the suspension a little bit more stiff and I believe it will solve the problem but I haven't decided what would be the most easiest way to do it. Any suggestion?

Bryan: Thanks for your advise and I have also been thinking black out all the window trims but I am worry about the vinyl will shrunk after sitting under the sun. Do you have any experience with them?

Woggster: I am not sure how it will fit onto a coupe but from my research at this forum many ppl said coupe has more room than sedan. FYI I have shaved the offset from +35 to +38 at the rear.

i would say to flare them, but it looks too good as is! IMO the only thing to do would be to tighten up the suspension like you said, unfortunately

Yes, I am going to do so. I have heard people installed the Meyle HD RTAB & Turner Motersport RTAB Limiter will help. Does anyone has these parts? Does it feel more stiff? Or it will only be able to feel it during hard cornering?
