I'm thinking M6 wheels have to slow your car down substantially...you sure you want to do that?

The smaller you go, the better acceleration you'll have. Plus, with 16s like mine, you could go 14" wide if you wanted!

But that wheel is so large...I'm guessing wide...and comparatively heavier...not that you're drag racing...but just saying.

Also if you have no gap, then you'll need to ensure your suspension is stiffer if you want to carry anyone or anything much...or have to go over speedbumps or on gravel roads.

Be careful and don't forget to consider the functional consequences of your aesthetic decisions.

because they don't fit.


OP make sure you get oem m3 mirrors and not reps. The reps look huge and terrible on the e46 body.

Dont get why at least you dont buy stuff that would bolt right up.
Fenders, hood, and bumper. Also, you limit the clearance under your 325 front fenders. M3
Fenders would have worked better. Easier to bolts things up.

thats because and original fender for example here cost $800 each , a hood $1200 $ bumper 1000.. even if they are used ... so you see fiber glass is the best option and also the car will be lighter

I think this would make sense if you bought a 325 with a blown engine on the cheap, and then maybe do the body, and the engine, trans, and rear. That would be a good start.
