not as aggressive as your past M3, although it looks nice and classy. I like how the center caps match the estoril. keep it up Kimo!

Thanks! Hawaiian Tire in Aiea. I don't trust anyone else. Have done 8 sets of wheels with them and numerous custom alignment. Everything to spec and not a single scratch on the wheels.

Mod update:

Went ahead and ordered Challenge's stainless steel brake lines. My two complaints with the mperformance bbk are the lack of stainless lines and ridiculous levels of brake dust. If you thought BMW or Brembo brake dust was bad by themselves, you ain't seen nothing yet until you take a look at these dusters lol..

One issue down and one to go. Obligatory pic of the lines taken from Challenge:

Not sure if this has been asked, but how do your tires fit in the body? My E90LCI has 245/275 combo. Not lowered. Very slight rubbing at full compression in the rear. How does the 235/265 fit yours?

I have no rubbing at all right now. I'm actually going to lower it a little bit more. The plan is to have it as low as possible without rubbing. I did set my rear camber to -2.5 though as I would rub otherwise.

Before you ask yes I planned from the beginning to run anywhere from -2 to -2.5 camber in the rear. I'm still waiting for some front camber plates to become available so I can get the front camber to that range as well. Right now it is at a measly -.8 as there is no camber adjustment up front that I'm aware of.

Hey Kimo,

Can u kindly explain a bit on what a rear camber is? And then your negative rear camber?

Trying to learn from experts like you!

Factory is -1.8 right? So not a significant amount more.

Yep it's right around there so no big deal to me. Going to run -3 on the front when possible and stuff something fat in there. Toe is more important when it comes to tire wear anyway.

Track newbie here: Does toe in/out and +/- camber actually contribute to track handling performance? Or is negative camber just leveraged for being able to equip larger rim diameters?

Amazing F30, by the way! I love the rims and Estoril Blue color combo...

Yes. For example toe out and a lot of negative camber on the front would help in autocross events.
