My Ride: ///M3 & 330i ZHP
Thanks Gary!

I've had my new TMS 3.46 LSD installed a week now and wanted to say that my ZHP has been a blast to drive since I've had this installed. It pulls so much harder with the new gearing - 2nd and 3rd gears are so much easier to shift into and the car pulls real hard in those gears. It makes going off the line and highway merges so much more fun. All I can say is that this car feels refreshed with the new LSD gearing and much more alive with everything I have put into her I have to say at this point, my ZHP is just as much fun to drive as my ///M is and since my ///M is now in hibernation status, driving my ZHP won't feel like 2nd best anymore. I am looking forward to the upcoming winter season where I can really enjoy driving in the snow with my new winter wheels w/ Blizzaks and LSD

For those who are looking at other things to add to their cars, put an LSD into your "things to do" list. It's money well-spent in my opinion.

3.46 / Factory-type LSD 3 Clutch 40%-60% lock-up / polished ring and pinion set all equates to around @$2800.00

My Ride: ///M3 & 330i ZHP
Today I fitted my Style 68's and took my ZHP out for a run. Ride is so much softer with these wheels





Love how my Performance calipers fill these wheels!






I'm ready for the snow now!

Re: Imola ZHP Progress Thread

I have to say after putting about 150 miles on the new wheels...the ride is much softer. Perfect figment with no rubbing compared to my last wheels where I had an occasional rub hitting hard bumps. I also like the look of these Style 68's compared to my "rep" wheels, which I sold to a friend

The old set was nice while I had them though...it was time for a change

The problem is that I happen to like my 135s. Since I live up here in New England I need to have a separate set of wheels for winter usage. The PSSs I have on my 135s just won't cut it during winter use...

Perhaps I can solve all of this by moving to the left coast
