İn Türkey, there is a 130k dollars difference between my lci and f30. And the project will cost up to 7k dollar at most

Except engine and seats, it will be an oem outside look

Some goodies have been bought a few minutes ago

2 x Full LED TMS

1x led indicator

1x left LED Headlight - 3 tabs broken, bought for 200$, lens is in great shape, its a steal I guess







Only the left led indicator left from the FULL LED HEADLIGHT SET..

I bought the front bumper today, from Germany



Time to UPDATE The LIST:

PARTS & MODS LIST:

1-) OEM M3 front bumper - BOUGHT
2-) OEM M3 rear bumper
3-) OEM M3 front fenders
4-) OEM M3 fender vents - BOUGHT
5-) OEM M3 trunk spoiler - BOUGHT
6-) OEM M3 hood
8-) M3 Mirror caps
9-) OEM M3 chrome grill - BOUGHT
10-) OEM M3 side skirts - BOUGHT
11-) OEM M3 front fender grilles - BOUGHT
12-) Akrapovic tips - BOUGHT
13-) M sport / M3 seats ( both will be okay for me )
14-) window tints
15-) OEM M3 shifter
16-) Rear fenders: I'm not sure if I should buy the quarter and mold it and ruin the rear quarter of a brand new car? I may do only the fender mod like I have done on my RS3 conversion, flowing with the M3 bumper. So in that case, there will be only local paint job on the rear fenders, not the whole quarters!
17-) OEM M3 left mirror housing & motor - ( hurt! so expensive! ) - BOUGHT
18-) OEM M3 right mirror housing & motor
19-) OEM M3 LED Headlights - FULL Led Set - BOUGHT
20-) OEM M3 diffuser - BOUGHT
21-) M3 Mirror glasses (deal falled)
22-) What else? ?

Love the wheel fitment on the first page!

You said you're running:
19x9 ET32 Fronts / 19x10 ET30 Rears / 235-35/265-30 Tyres

Do you know how much camber you're running front and rear? Do you have camber plates? What did you have to do to the front and rear fenders to make that fit?

I'm trying to go 19x9.5 +23 front

I did not do anything EXTRA, just coilovers.

But the tyre a little bit poked in the rear, front is on the ABSOLUTELY NO RUB point, no worries. Rear also did not rub at all when we are 2-3 in the car. When we were 5 it rubbed a little on bounces.

Camber was -2.2 which is the most possible I believe without any modification.

I think you can do it, without rubbing with 235-35 or 245-30 or 255-30 tyres at max!

Results
Inner Clearance:
13mm MORE
(the inside of the wheel to the strut housing)
Outer Position:
EXTEND an extra 1mm
(position of the outside edge of the wheel)

It will be 1mm out from my setup..

Cheers

I don't think so. The m3 fenders are wider. If the bumper fits then it wouldn't match the f30 fenders... I could be wrong

f80 is wider and the hood is shorter too, you also need different set of lights like the OP

All remaining parts are packed and dispatched today from Germany, it will take like 10 days to recieve them. Than the conversion job will be started

I bought my rims, I had not many choices coz of costs and lack of available model with 11 rims here in Turkey , so I went for;

ADV1 10, Forged, Dark Gunmetal, Concave OEM rims,
20x10 & 20x11,
265-30-20 & 305-25-20 tyres, Pirelli PZero



It is starting to take my breath away! Now we should begin to counting down!

I found the rear set finally





I'll later upgrade drilled rotors, I want to make some mdos left after the project

Today I made a test fit!
We are going to struggle to fit these badboys in 305!












Since the car is on the process, I changed my 19 wheels onto my F20 M Sport and took those from it temporary..

I'll be in the shop on the next Monday, in a few days later!

Huge damn excited!!
