Diffuser looks pretty good. Can see what you mean about fitment but it's pretty close. Where did you buy it from?

^ Oops, sorry for the late reply lol. Diffuser was bought from SGT in the US.

I was updating that other thread with my new wheels, but for those who missed it I have some work equips 18x10/12 now. I finally mounted the center caps now. Will be driving up to Melbourne Friday morning for 100mm so if anyone is going might cya there!

So as some of you know, I made the trip up to Melbourne to attend the 100mm certified 2014 show. Overall it was an awesome show. Great display of cars, excellent location and atmosphere. I drove up with a few friends, one owning an E39 M5 and the other an E36. The drive up was problem free, on the way home had a bit of drama though. Punctured a tyre and had to call out RAA to help jack up my car and put a spare wheel on. I carried up the work equips and ran the OEM19s, but my friend was helping me carry 1 wheel and my jack in his car. He decided to return back to Adelaide a day earlier, so I didn't travel with him on my way home. Just my luck, bah! Also, somehow broke an exhaust hanger, not sure how...so now I gotta get a new one made.

I managed to take home "best euro" so I was very happy with that considering the quality of cars on display. Thought I'd post a few pics, for those who didn't go, you missed out! Be sure to go to next years!

Taped up the car to reduce stone chips...I think it helped a bit, but it's not totally necessary.



First stop.



Back on the road.



Few pics of the car the night before the show. All clean and wheels put on. I was lucky enough to stay with my cousin who lives in a nice apartment and got my own carpark

My "bump in" time for the event was 9:30am. Different groups of entrants were given different bump in times. We were to all meet in a carpark at the docklands where we would finalize our registrations and then be guided by marshals to our designated spots.

A pic of the carpark with some cars waiting to be escorted out. I wish I had taken out my camera here and taken pics. Was cool to see the cars come in, some came on trucks. A phone pic will have to suffice:



The trophy.



Posted an album on facebook so feel free to browse through the pics. Didn't manage to get every car though...

If it runs as good as it looks you have yourself one of the finest E46 M3's in the country. Beautiful.

So I sold my BBS LMs (miss them already) and since then have been looking for a daily set of wheels to run (the equips are a bit too aggressive for spirited driving haha!). I was considering enkei rs05rr, but then decided they looked a bit cheap and didn't want to cheapen the car. Then was looking at the new RAYS ZE40, but wasn't keen on spending another 4k (wheels + new tyres) just on daily wheels. Eventually thought I'd try run a square oem19 rear setup. Eric put me in touch with his friend who was selling a set, and a few days later:



Rear tyres are dead, so will buy new ones but will probably try run 255/35 all round. I had intended to run 18s as a daily, as I prefer 18s over 19s but this set was a great deal so went for them. Will post pics once I get them on, but for now another random pic of the car:
