My Ride: 135i
Hey guys. Got a winter wheel/tire set-up I am selling. Wheels are Sport Edition F-10 17x8 +40 offset. They came off a 135i. The wheels include the TPMS sensors. The wheels themselves are practically brand new, only used for 3 months. The tires have about 60% tread left. They are Blizzak LM-25 Run Flats. Let me know if you are interested by sending a private message. Cash only, must pick up, I live in Downtown Denver. Looking for $600 for everything.

(didn't get photos of my car with the setup but this is a nearly identical one)

Emissions w/ headers?

So everything I read has different solutions for this, but if I go aftermarket headers (would love to hear people's opinions on the best options, I'm currently looking at the supersprint stepped headers) what do I need to do to pass emissions? Is that possible? Do I have to put stock headers back on every year to pass emissions? I've heard running with no cats can cause torque loss due to low backpressure and awful smells. Please help?

You need cats to pass emissions. Either a set of Euro cats or something.

AR design would be the place to go to get some cats put in if you don't want to spend the money on euro cats.

My Ride: '05 M3 Carbon Black
So, finally warmed up enough to take the M3 up into the hills a bit. Really, really happy with it. I wasn't originally blown away by the straight-line power, but if I wanted a drag-car I would have bought a drag-car. The balance, steering, brakes, throttle response are all just awesome. Super confidence building with every corner. Super F'in stoked on this ride! Also spent the morning putting in matte-black front and side grills which look AWESOME! Found them at khoalty which someone on this thread suggested, so thanks whoever that was, looks much more sinister and much less yuppie. Next move is rims/tires as I only have a few k left on my current tires. Thouroughly confused by the square set-up thing, I get the pros, but have also read it can "confuse" the M-diff and make the car understeer at turn in and skittish in a straight line. I'm driving mostly street, but will do occasional track days and plan to spend all my free-time in the mountains. Anyone with experience on a square setup in an M3? Tire/wheel size, etc. Thanks guys!

Square is better handling.

Here is the best tire sizing thread. http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=318122

For street tires I still have a staggered setup. For the track, I run 265/35/18. I have a set of spacers for the rear wheels so I can have the same offset wheels and rotate them. I also have adjustable camber plates for the front. With the track tires I add some negative camber, which is better on the track and lets the 265 or 275 tires fit in the front.

If you run square all the time, you will have to figure out what tire width vs. camber vs. toe settings you want.

Thanks Cazz. It sounds like having a 2nd set of wheels for the track is probably the best option, and thanks for the thread link, there's so much info on here it's hard to find exactly what I'm looking for sometimes.

I ran 275-35-18's all the way round on my M3 at the track, it's by far the way to go.
