Pro Tip. Get the COBB and M3 lower control arms. That is all you need.

Some Rams with non run flats would be good also. I am a fan of 335i's. My wife loves hers.

Yup. We went with 18's on my wifes car but its a sedan. On coupes 18's look a bit small.

My friends car with Alufelgen SF-71. 19's (He's in the MD area also)

those are the wheels I'd get. But I'd put them on my e36 m3 sedan.

The CSL reps look awesome on e36's in 18's. Friend has them on a e36 sedan in Philly, I don't hate them.

I think I will get these wheels. In gunmetal. Hyper black would be my choice but I think this will look good too.

Nice purchase bro, but $35k? That seems excessively high.

BMW will more than likely be my next car. The interior is just so perfect.

I agree with the other guys, try to avoid black wheels on a black car. Maybe grab some better looking OEM wheels from a 5-7 series or M wheels.

I'd leave it alone as far as upgrades. Why take the chance of ------- up another car. Drive it, enjoy it and make it last.

EDIT: Here's a few wheel choices I'd consider.

Those are the exact wheels i posted.

Y8s was right. We are alike. Except i am the smart version of you.

Regarding price

Once upon a time My ex GF who made 40k bought herself a brand new Chevy Trailblazer for $35,000. She got a loan and paid it all off. If she could ****** afford that damn car I sure as **** can afford this. I drive for a living. I am a professional driver and get paid 55c a mile. I dont want to have to keep shelling out $ for broke *** daily cars of fail. Honestly i could have bought a brand new porsche turbo and not missed the $ but for me the value was not there. The interior of this car is indeed quite nice.

Here is planned mod list:

Some little visual flourish bs
Rimz sorry i mean DUBS
lowering springs
Sways
M3 LCAs
Shuft knobbie
Cobb AP
Maybe some gayass intake for sounds

Im gonna pay a shop to do the springs sways and lcas. I do not want to molest the stuff onto the car in my customary fashion.

Congrats on the purchase, Min. This is relevant to my interest as my 3-series coupe should be here at the end of this week. TireRack.com has some less expensive options that you can check out on their "test fit" application.

I'm curious if you can get a reasonably sized non-staggered setup on the coupes.

Why do you care if your neighbor has one? Are you one of those "I mutht be unique guythhhh"???

Those wheels actually look good (surprisingly) and since you obviously like em, get em.
Who cares what others have.


PS: my coworker has those on his 335 coupe as well and I admire them in the parking lot every day.

Here's the car I'm talking about. I think it looks boss.

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=396734





I realllly don't want to do a staggered setup. But it sounds like 19x9s would rub in the front. And I think it would be stupid if my miata runs more tire than this car which weighs twice as much. Like all my cars I am going to drive the shiz out of it, but I want to flush this car too. Sigh

Oh, well.

He is trying way too hard. Its obvious and completely retarded. We all know he can type/spell like a normal human being, yet somehow he finds it funny/amusing to make peoples eyes hurt by hammering at the keyboard with a sawzall.

Hope he stops the bs so we can continue to be entertained by his 5 star threads
