Yup 335's really look crazy wide in person, its hard to judge by seeing them in pics but in real life its crazy. My buddy did some body work to his zr1 and its crazy seeing how wide they really are but it does look so good. I have had people comment about how wide my rears are and they are only 285 hahaaah.
Hey Im average size lol 190 lb 6'1. putting in the Sportster CS custom wrapped imola red... these seats are super comfy, but I know what your saying about the PPs my buddy had them in his Skyline and there really "tight" lol, cant wait to experience the pro efi traction control, Also the NOS as well I have never been in a car with NOS, maybe thats a good thing we started with 125 hp shot lol...

I am 6", 195 lbs, and in really good shape - however, I would never again purchase a Recaro PP, unless it was my track car only... Food for thought.

PS: can't wait to hear your reaction to the ProEFI TC, it's AMAZING

For everyone who pm'd me on my wide body... Call this place in Cali, They were the ones who originally fabricated the rear quarters/bumper... If you look at there website they definitely do some quality work!

car going back to SP tomorrow for final touch ups

some pics below of the vynil wrap ( what you guys think about the rear quarters now? I'm not 100% on where the rear 1/4 meets the side skirts but hopefully I change my mind in person)

I would have the sideskirts flare with the fenders before the wheels...that being said I also prefer the OEM bumper over the CSL or your Closed vent non fog version...but it is different. Wrap looks good tho.

I told them to make it oem looking that's what I got I didn't want bulky...the m3 stock front is not aggressive enough to pull off the rear and everything else IMO
