Style 5's are nice but its really hard to pull off without a really aggressive drop and tire stretch dont know if i could do that.
I think these two would be really good then.

Those CSLS are really tempting, if i could bring the set down to 350 it will def be a great deal.

My Ride: '99 Techno Violet M3
I've had a couple strange things happen to me today. First was my SES light immediately after starting. I later scanned and found these codes:




After reading into it a bit more, it appears as though the 299A error means a communication failure between the transmission control unit and something else. The other one I'm not sure about yet.

In addition to this, I've noticed my oil light coming on and staying on for a bit after I shut the car off. The weird part is that my oil level is perfectly fine and my sensor was replaced with a genuine BMW replacement in January. Ugh.

I think the main difference in rtabs is the even tire wear with it helping with toe

I wouldnt say it looks like crab but I do believe the old bumper with the splitters looked better.
I dont think I can pull off CF splitters on a black car, can I? would there be a point?
