One of the guys I work with owns the white 330ci. Overcast made for bad picture quality, figured I'd snap a couple pics anyways

Yeah I still have those. I've been lazy about posting them. Did the math while I was getting my fenders rolled and figured out the M3 size and offset plus the 12mm spacers I have on the rear will give me an approximate idea of how the M6 wheels will fit. Tires on the M3 wheels are 255/35-19 though, about 3/4 of an inch taller than the tires I'll be going with (265/30-19) on the M6 wheels. Just a test fit to see how they fit. Though I'd need a 35mm spacer to see how the fronts would fit, lmao. I'm pleased with how the rears fit though.

Lol, I was joking about the 35mm spacer. I'm not going to get a set just to test fit. I was just calculating what it would take. If I had a 2x4 I'd just fit the actual M6 wheel and slowly let it down on the 2x4. But I don't have one

I took the tint off because everytime I drove past a cop I'd think, "please dont pull me over" or "oh ****, change lanes, windows down." I decided driving my car to go to the gas station or the store shouldn't be a risk everytime. Plus, As an added benefit, I kind of like it without tint. Still getting used to it though, as I've had 20% on it for the past 3 years. I think it makes my car look cleaner, too. More of the OEM Plus look that I'm going for.

And havent been pulled over for the plates yet, they do have my registration stickers though. Ive gotten a handful of thumbs up and what not, though. But I've got my DMV issued plate in the trunk just in case.

Edit: Will trade my smoked corners and side markers for clear. Facelift sedan fitment. Also have clear coupe sidemarkers for sale, $20 delivered

Hm. 2700 for a set of 4. I think I'm going to wait until Holiday season to see if they offer any Black Friday discounts. Plus, I've got to redo my math, they said 18x8.5 et 16 would be a 88mm (3.47") lip and 18x9.5 et 29 would be an 87mm (3.46") lip. I was aiming for 3" front and 3.5" rear

It's so much more relaxing and fun to be legal. Then when u roll by not speeding. You know, they really don't have any PC.

Hey guys quick question. My E46 went into limp mode with a SES light too. I'm fairly certain it was because of the battery which was pretty old, I replaced it but I'm still in limp/SES. does anyone local to VA Beach have a code reader and can check my car ? My scanner is back home in California, and if I'm going to spend a decent amount of money on something I'd rather it be the part that fixes the car.

I had to drive it back to base which I really didn't want to do but my options were limited. Anyways aside from driving around in 4th gear it drives really smooth still so there's that.
