My Ride: 2001 325ci coupe&M3
Well, time to make first post. BMW GTR M3

Hello all. Name is Bill. I have an 2002 bmw m3 in silver and a 2001 325ci in black. Well enough of introductions, on with the questions. Ok, I've been converting my m3 into a, so to speak, road race car. I have been following the specs/body styling of the advan/yokohama team ptg car. Love the look, love the performance. I am now just finishing the read quarter panels and am starting to wonder how am i going to get that offset they use after my rear quarters are done. i mean, seriously that tire sticks out far and also what parts to get to convert to one center axle/bolt design. Maybe that would help. I was thinking extending my rear controll arms, but that seems like it would be a sin to ruin a perfectly good controll arm. I hear they use 11x18" wheels, But the offset is what i just dont get.

Thanks in advance for maybe helping me out,


p.s. Also were do you get a spoiler like that..?
