I don't know anything about suspensions and I'm not confident in my ability to do it right. I have the parts (most of them, anyhow) but need a shop that will install customer supplied parts.

Thanks in advance for any help/advice.
i'm always willing to help if i have the time to. the shops brandon listed are very good and can work on your car if you supply the parts.

The BBS's pictured above run for $550 a piece new and the 18x8.5's weigh 25.5lbs

So these are my answer;



they're made by Bremmer Kraft and the 18x9's are $160 each and weigh 23.6lbs, they also come in 18x8 but a weight is not listed. Anyway, what do ya think?
daaaamn those are great looking wheels.... 18x9 square. DO IT

Wellllll, the first guy I bought the trunk from has not sent the package yet and isn't answering my PM's. So I bought another trunk, but from the guy I bough the hood from. If both come in I might sell one. If both come in they are different brands so I'll pick the better one and put that one on.

yea, Grant (Tyler actually) put turn downs on both of my exhaust options, however, the S54B32 makes one holy racket that i'm not confident will be under sound regs enough.

besides, it gives me an excuse to a) autox my 330 again, and b) gut the crap out of the M3 as it will see track use only

given the prep-level (or lack-thereof) of my 330, it would be an AT or DS car. even at that the tires are teh-crap and would be the limiting factor.

either way, i'll probably bring the M3 to the next event i attend and hope to pass sound. if not, then i'll either run the 330 or co-drive at later events.
