It's no different if he finances the full amount and then wrecks it. Except that he'd be on the hook for $35k plus the relevant finance charges and interest.

The bank isn't going to just let you stop paying on the loan simply because you wrecked the car.

Sedan is a better looking car IMHO, looks more balanced. Coupe doors are like 16 feet long, but it's a nice car.

JB4
Downpipe
Meth injection
Done.

That will get you a bit over 400/400.



Do it. I won't do it so you should.

still no LSD though.

I'm sure you're fine with it, but that'd really be a deal breaker for me.

If you're not retarded, RWD works just fine in the snow.

Hell, my 99 leaves a 3inch high path in the snow where the frame pushes the snow out of the way, but I just slap on my 14 inch blizzacks on stock NA wheels, and I ride out like a baus.

If its a BMW you gotta go with the mesh wheels, and you dont get sexier than a CCW classic.

but Fikse is still my favorite and I do love me some FM10s (on e46)

M6 wheels look good to


Iforged makes some nice stuff but I dont like the shape of the wheel face on the newer 3 series.

Tune-JB4 or Cobb, cobb is easier if you ever take your car to dealer. JB isn't hard to install but it takes some time to swap it in and out and is cheaper
Just get some cat less downpipes, a better FMIC and maybe an intake.
Forget the meth and spend it on having VAC or someone install an LSD(in your pumpkin-your diff has the ring gear welded to the carrier) you can even get an OS Giken if you want.

As for wheels EVERYONE makes wheels for these cars. I still say get some baller Forgeline or HRE wheels so someone can steal them. Schnitzer,BBS, Beyern and others make pretty decent wheels. Enkei or cheap TSW/Rotas would be fine

What size wheels? 19x9" all around? Any offset recommendations? I am trying to avoid doing days of research :(

Also, won't turboback and fmic void factory warranty?

I would like cheap wheels . I think black or hyperblack.
