Today after work I decided to tackle a few things.



Swapped out the stock zhp motor mounts and put in new e92 m3 motor mounts.



Install some RE Transmission Mounts.



Install RTAB Shims from RE.



Also replaced my fuel pump and valve cover gaskets.

Last by not least tried some new shoes, and got a nice new alignment







17x9 +42 APEX Arc8 with hankook 255/40/17. It rubs pretty bad on the swaybar when turning the wheel a bit. I'm not sure if that is 100% lock or not. Strut clearance is barely 3mm from the tire to the strut. Good thing this wheel isn't mine cause I am seeing a hell of a clearance problem LOL.



New alignment specs right for now:

Front
Camber -3
Toe -0 05'

Rear
Camber -2
Toe 0 11'

Well I've been saving up for the ecs brake kit ever since I saw your build thread but maybe I'll realocate some funds. Your car looks terrific btw, especially that interior!

The brakes are great for street. Get plenty of looks. They feel great too. Track days..the ceramic caps seem to hold too much heat and become too brittle. Once I upgrade to stoptech pistons and silicon boots/deals to withstand the higher temps it will feel amazing.

Thanks! There is also another setup on Schmeidmann.com. They have a 345mm setup. It's the m3 zcp rotors and 135i calipers.

Those APEX were a trial run. A coworker was installing his tires on his APEX and I wanted to see if they would clear my front brakes. They do amazingly and give less than 3mm clearance from the strut.

installed some Euro Aspherical mirrors. Ordered straight from the dealer.

Going to take some time to get use to the wide angles.
