There's a used one on eBay now for $30 shipped! Just type e46 m3 smoked corners and you'll see them!

After researching on the forums and asking forum members about their suspension set-ups
and wheels spacers, I have decided to purchase the following items at European Auto Source.

Thanks to Rob @ EAS for his excellent customer service! (Salamat Pare!)
Thank you also to the forum members that answered my questions! (You guys know who you are!)

I still need to purchase ST Coilovers and Vorshlag Camber Plates so that all of these parts can be installed together.


POWERFLEX RTABS
ROUGE ENGINEERING RSM's
MATT SCHNELL 3MM SPACERS

I got some rotors and brake pads...
The rotors were ordered from quickstop pro and the brake pads were from TMS...

Since I was upgrading my suspension and wheels, might as well upgrade
the brakes. I do not plan on tracking the car...
It's more for spirited driving that's why I did not go for the BBK...

Here are the photos: (took photos with my phone...
I got lazy to get the camera..)

A long time overdue update! The car has been in the garage since October 29... During winter time, I planned to get some stuff and they are finally here...
Hopefully by Feb 26 (Sunday), I'll have the RTABS, Rear Fender Rolling, Coilovers Installation, Spacers and the new wheels and tires installed! Then alignment after a week...

The wheels and tires should arrive Friday.. The coilovers just got in today... After researching, I decided to purchase the BC Coilovers.
Many of you will ask why I got the BC Coilovers. Some will like it... Some will not...
I do not plan on tracking the car anytime soon... I just wanted a nice drop, comfortable ride and better suspension compared to the OEM's.
I also have experienced riding in an M3 E46 that has these installed and they are pretty solid...Enough for the way I drive (Spirited Driving).
Thanks to Charlie!!! So far, I really have'nt seen anyone complain about these coilovers...

Are the wheels finally on their way/you have a tracking number? That wait must have been killer. Good choice on the BCs. I think you'll like them.

Yup... Have the tracking number and they are on the way here.. Wheels should be delivered by Friday. Dave will be doing the installation for everything. If you are near his area, drop by this Sunday!
