As promised.... Photos taken in my garage after plowing my driveway today so don't expect anything great. Weather is still bad so a proper photo shoot will be done once weather permits. Enjoy!

For everyone who thinks the M3 badge in the initial install was a little way off to the right, I fixed that this morning. Moved it to the left. I think it looks good now. I still have to remove that yellow vorsteiner sticker under the rear diffuser. It's bugging me!

As well as the side profile fitment of the bumper.

The sticker would bother me too, I would move it to where you can't see it.

I just took the whole thing out. The authenticity sticker is on the back side anyways.

UPDATES:

I was able to pick up 2 sets of 18 OEM wheels last night. It worked out great for my friend Charlie and I.
He has an E46 M3 as well as a ZHP that he plans to use the 4 oem 18 fronts and I will use the 4 rears
for my car as a square set up / spare set to run while waiting for another set of work wheels that I ordered.

Went to the storage area and started working on the M3.
I had regular staggered OEM 18's initially installed while the car was in the storage.
In order for me to give Charlie a complete set of all fronts for his ZHP, I had to take my front wheels out.

I am purchasing tires for the square set up that I have.
I will update exact specs and photos after.

265/35/18
-2.1 camber all around
12mm spacer rear
might install 5mm spacer up front but not too sure yet.

UPDATES:


My friend Charlie came up to NH to visit me and buy the ARC8's that I have. We worked on his car and did 75mm stud conversion and install the ARC8's on his car! We installed macht schnell 5mm spacers up front. He still needs to roll the rear fenders and add 10mm spacers to get that agressive look on the rear. Overall, his car looks great!

CHARLIE'S CAR ON THE LEFT AND MY CAR ON THE RIGHT


CHARLIE'S 75MM STUD CONVERSION AND 5MM SPACER


FINAL PRODUCT OF CHARLIE'S CAR!
