All the other step cars I've driven: Mercedes c240, Audi A5 shifted like **** and had nothing on the bmw step son!

I'm hoping to order my new wheels by the end of the week.

APEX ARC-8 18"x9" 42mm with 255/35-18 all around on Dunlop Star Spec tires



EDIT: has anyone looked outside?! Fog out the ass!

Oh yeah, I always forget you went 235 cause those sidewalls are so deceiving.

"APEX ARC-8 18"x9" 42mm with 255/35-18 all around on Dunlop Star Spec tires"

Do it. Add AST 4100 and UUC sways and you will never go back.

I want the AST 4100 and Turner sways but... I don't have enough $$$ for everything right now... I have spent so much damn money on this car... I am buying new pads and rotors too, before track day

Going to my new wheel setup from 24lb rims and semi bald all seasons should be like night and day

I drive that road on mission at night sometimes. Its much more exciting, makes my adrenaline flow more. Its not lit at all, other than my headlights though.

Ya, my 8.5's are on my front and my 7.5's are on my rear. both 235/35/17 tires though

front fit, kinda agressive



front and rear (this is the best angle to show the difference)



its barely noticable, If I wouldnt have said anything then you never would have noticed. It was only once I was under the car did I start to question... the front shock clearance is like 6mm lol, worse than those pics of your car I think

At a DE you can go on parade laps but otherwise only with an instructor. I'm hoping to find an instructor school in the area if not this year then next.
