Looks like you have a very nice car on order! Hmm manual, I kind of wanted to go with manual but was a bit afraid of resale value/possibility (just in case I would stay here).. I miss driving stick since I'm living here Who's your CA if I may ask?
Thom Butler is my CA. He was the only one who would talk story with me when I was younger. All the other CA's would ignore me. So I give him all my business

That's cool you live close by. We will all be able to meet up in Waikele and drive to the meets together. F30's roll out lol...

Yeah Thom Butler seems like a nice guy, I can't say I really talked to him but he did always greet me whenever he saw me

I have a similar thing with my CA, Otto Gibson-Gebauer, but it probably also helps that we're both from Europe originally (although, my relationship with him might cool down a bit after today's Euro 2012 match since my country is losing from Germany right now haha jk )

omg I just noticed you had your rims for sale about a month ago.. they're like my wife's old rims but in chrome and an inch smaller, which is exactly what I wanted for my car.

Oh well, no money for rims for now anyways, stupid house is costing a lot lol.. hopefully the black rims look good on my car, we might test fit them this weekend

My coworker went to a cruise/meet this weekend and described an e46 m3 that might have been your old car m3guy. He said it was nice.

A house tends to do that. Ended up selling them to a guy in New Jersey. The offsets would not work on the F30 anyway. The front would have worked for the rear but no way is an et 8 10 inch wheel going to fit.

Did it have gold wheels? If so that was my old car. The new owner has big plans for it. To each his own I suppose...

Yes, he did say it had gold wheels.

Seems that the f30s would need high offsets. I'm reading in the 40s for 10 inch wide wheels.

Haha that's funny, I was actually looking at a black X5 over there and was wondering if that would be you.. then I figured, why would it be, there are so many X5's on the road nowadays.. haha so awesome it was actually you Thanks for the compliment, your X5 looks great too!

We just came from Subway, had to get some dinner =)


Edit: btw, I hope my car didn't look too dirty.. haven't washed it in a while lol

Hey,

I'm wondering if any of you guys know anybody who could be interested in some E46 M3 stuff, most of it is new or hardly used.

We're moving to a different place as you know and we found boxes with the following stuff:

- Front Grill - Stock (chrome)
- Front Grill - Black
- Painted side reflectors (Titanium Silver)
- Corner light - Stock
- Corner light - Smoked
- Side fender air intakes - Stock

All for the E46 M3

I figured I'd ask here first because I don't feel much for the hassle of shipping it elsewhere lol

Edit: I also found a brand new car cover for the E70 X5. We received it when we got the X5 but never used it lol. So that one has to go too =)
Edit2: And I forgot to mention I also have a (used) Thule roof rack for the E70 X5 that can go lol
Edit3: And if fitting the other wheels (the ones we used to have on the M3) don't go well later today, then those wheels might be up for sale too


Oh, as for cost for all of this, I have no idea.. make me an offer

lol we never fit them yet

I don't know if the rears will fit or not, it's worth a try to see how it works out. The measurements should be ok if I read the posts from people here, we'll see if so... I'm more curious about how they will look like because of the black in the rims

Well we know now, they're not going to fit

I never knew the exact offset, but never thought it would be this bad lol.. we looked at them from every angle but there's no way this is going to look nice when they're on. The fronts are not bad, but the rear are, indeed like you also said, a problem. They're too big.

The specs are as follows:

Front: 245/30 20x9.0 et:37
Rear: 295/20 20x10.5 et:25

So guess we're going to put them up for sale =)
