i got 35 F & R, so i guess i'll buy lower profile tires next time and 'behave' until then.
are you entertaining any thoughts of getting headers from the GB? i spent an hour thisa afternoon w/Scott @bimmer north. i'm on the fence but leaning to ya.
i'm out of warranty in april'11. i may just buy them and wait until then.

I need a good body shop that is willing to tear apart and reshape the corners of an m3 rear bumper to make it fit the non-m fenders better. The shop I took my car to refuses to do it

Any suggestions?

Try calling Huntington Auto.
9015 S Dairy Ashford St
Houston, TX 77099-1215
(281) 568-0393

I've taken or sent 7-8 cars to them, and they have always done me right. I've seen them do a fair amount of custom work on stuff as well, although it was mostly VW stuff.

ugh. this bumper is a pain to get working. I also feel that I might as well upgrade to a newer car with my money. I'm just going to sell everything, and get either a zhp, or maybe an e90
