Wow. That looks a lot better than I imagined it would. Sinister!

What are your final camber settings, if you know?

Not a fan... Tire stretch... tire wear must be great.

I guess I drive a BMW for other reasons....

Based on my experience, tire stretching does not affect the tire wear. Your alignment and driving style affect your tire wear.

Im guessing you're referring to the black on black car?.....I agree completely, but aside from that I like it. Definitely qualifies for having the "imperial cog" replacing the bmw roundels. Vader would roll it.. I'd love to see the corners/ tails lightly smoked. ...if you're going to murder it, do it all the way, haha

Fully aware... I work at BimmerWorld and do in depth tech support.

Stretching a tire can be dangerous if you actually drive the car hard... I guess for a show car / street cruiser its fine...

Black on black is ok, the tire stretch reminds me of the VW crowd...

My touring is very simplistic in its approach. This is my second one and I missed the first so much that I bought another 03. I posted before a few times and yesterday I completed my suspension, here is how she currently sits on Tein SSPs.

Front bumper is mangled, what can I say? I had a fight with a large traffic cone and the cone won!

^^Looks good. Wheel center caps would really complete your look.

How are the Teins? I am a big fan of their coilovers, regardless of application.

I'm finally throwing mine in:

 photo 311956f5-594a-48cf-8177-0152f6020b98_zpsc6cc8e5d.jpg

Just got new super sports on and a fresh alignment and took a 2 hour drive to the foothills. Amazing. GT on the freeway, Solo II on the bends. FSD + Eibach + BBS RK @ 17lbs + Apex Spacers F:15mm & R: 18mm, Michelin Pilot Super Sports = very satisfied touring owner.
