Took a couple glamor shots with my new Google Pixel XL, seriously love this phone.





Also picked up a set of rear bumper CF find from a good friend of mine. Very subtle mod but 1 of my favorites from my previous car.



Pics on the e92.

Been crazy lately with the 2 jobs... Almost a month exactly since I've updated this thread. Picked up some M6 style reps in gunmetal. I found a setup I could not let slip by. 19x9.5 et37 all around. Planning on running 255/35 on all 4 corners. About to order my BC Coilovers as well. From my calculations the fitment should be PERFECT in the front with the right drop and like -2.5ish degrees of camber. I'm not really concerned about the rears right now. Once I dial these bad boys in, I'll know the limitations of fitment for the fronts of these cars and will be able to order the correct specs for my Work SP3s.

Now I'm debating running squared tires all around. Definitely will be doing 255/35 in the front, but now I'm thinking 265/35 in the rear. Or maybe even a 285/30... But I'm all about symmetry and I'd hate the slight stretch front to the Uber beefy rears.





It never ends...

Interested to see how the 255/35 works on the front. I'm thinking about running OEM Style 230s but in a square 19x9 setup with that tires fitment.

Car looks good so far!

Ordered tires and spacers a few days ago. Got a few 5mm and 3mm sets to go with my other 8mm and 12mm. I'll be playing around with the fitment once I figure out how much space I need to clear the struts. A couple guys running 10" fronts with beefy tires on 18s. I think I'll be fine with these specs and some negative camber. I really want to run 255/40 all around, but I wanna see how this goes 1st. I'll post pics once I start fooling around.

Thank you sir. She has a long way to go before she's where I want her to be.

Looking forward to seeing pics of the wheels mounted. These are the only wheels that have my interest in switching to at the moment

Check out this thread.

Last post has the 255/35 on a 9.5. Can't say I'm thrilled with the look... But they'll do for beater wheels. Really got them because the deal was excellent, the specs were perfect to test fit and guage what I plan to do with my fronts in the future AND I absolutely hate the 403m wheels on it now.
Probably won't be on for another few weeks. Coilovers have custom spring rates and are being built right now. They said 3 weeks or so. Plus I have to find time between both jobs to actually get this shit done. Lol

Thanks, I actually like it a lot on the mineral grey pictured. I think with some spacers it will work.

If you don't mind sending me a link I would be interested to see how much these are going for? I can do some searching too

They're reps made in China I'd assume. I bought 4 of the last 5 from the vendor on eBay. You can find them for $700-$800 all day long on there. Or you can find them for like $2000 OEM on here. They're beaters for me so I went cheapy.

Decided to say "F it!" and picked up some M3 style gloss black mirror caps. Subtle change but I likes it. Gonna paint my roof gloss black as well in a few weeks. I usually wrap the roof but I want it done once, and done right.

Ebay brother. Fitment is great, paint... Not so much. But for $70, I'm not complaining. I'll have my shop wetsand and clear them when I have the roof done

Yup, but it's okay. Other things to work on and figure out during that period.

Trying to narrow down interior trim wrap options. I'm torn between these options now. At 1st I was all about #4, then I found the other 3 options in the controltac vinyl section.




Will be wrapped in these trim pieces plus the center top portion of the dash and the aluminum on the dash.





Entertaining the idea of the wishbone on the steering wheel and the trim around the bottom of the shifter. I feel like it may be too matchy matchy though. I have some samples coming in this week to help me decide. We'll see how it goes.

Oh... Also bought something special today. Impulse buy, but totally worth it. I'll post pics once it comes in.

My impulse buy...



M Sport Rear Calipers
Gotta do some research to see if these can bolt up to my standard rotors or if I need to upgrade to the 345mm M Sport size version. Hopefully the former, if the latter that's fine too. Won't go on until they're powder coated anyway. I'll just pick up my drilled and slotted rotors with ceramic pads and do a full swap all at once.

Side note: Still no coilovers. I'm getting antsy now.
