3.46 / Factory-type LSD 3 Clutch 40%-60% lock-up / polished ring and pinion set all equates to around @$2800.00

My Ride: ///M3 & 330i ZHP
Today I fitted my Style 68's and took my ZHP out for a run. Ride is so much softer with these wheels





Love how my Performance calipers fill these wheels!






I'm ready for the snow now!

I'm taking the ZHP out on a run with my new wheels....looking forward to a much smoother ride compared to my OE 18's.....

Re: Imola ZHP Progress Thread

I have to say after putting about 150 miles on the new wheels...the ride is much softer. Perfect figment with no rubbing compared to my last wheels where I had an occasional rub hitting hard bumps. I also like the look of these Style 68's compared to my "rep" wheels, which I sold to a friend

The old set was nice while I had them though...it was time for a change

The problem is that I happen to like my 135s. Since I live up here in New England I need to have a separate set of wheels for winter usage. The PSSs I have on my 135s just won't cut it during winter use...

Perhaps I can solve all of this by moving to the left coast

Looks good Charlie but all the weaves are going on different directions. Is that supposed to be like that? I am not familiar with that car of yours that's why I'm asking. I know it's another BMW Performance part but that would drive me nuts. School me about this. Thanks brotha!
