that doesn't make alot of sense.... 17x8 with any stretch at all gives you about 3 tires to choose from

^^^Great looking E36! Simple, aggresive and clean. I'm sure it's great for the track, too.

Oh dear, she's a blast...

Can do a 1.0 lateral G any day of the weak.

Takes freeway clovers at 60+ mph.

Pulls very hard too. My mechanic friends and other instructors have told me that it's the most powerful N/A E36 M3 they've driven.

Nuff' talking, I apologize.

Yes sir. I'm a full time college student at USD and work weekends at a local BMW dealership so I drive a lot in such an impractical car.

I usually trailer my car up to the track because my dad likes to go with me (plus I usually have to trailer it back anyway )

I love it though. She's my baby.
