Maybe in a year or two though it's part of the plan. I always wanted a M3 sedan. Looks at Kalim

Seriously though if all goes well hopefully next summer.

Yeah I don't think I will add anymore up front. I guess I'll just have to pull more... I swear all I want is like another .25 or .5 inches lower. It just won't let me.

"Just on more hit...that's all I need...just a little taste..."



You never know, a great deal might come along. Been looking at salvage M3s lately and there have been some great prices on whole cars with usable drivetrains and many panels intact.

Yeah I swear that's what Sillie / Hieu keeps telling me. I'm just addicted to going lower now.

Interesting... very interesting... then I could swap the rear diff and everything too at the same time. That would be so awesome. I'll have to talk to you more about this Kalim... well when my wallet recovers first.

Yeah. I think pulling is your only option. Unless you want to try and retrofit m3 control arms, maybe that'll widen out the track, so you can camber in more.

When I was running 255/40/18s with my racelands, I just rubbed so much that it flared the fenders by itself.
