Eagle F1 (Runcrap)

But!
It's importent to have the same diameter back/front.
"Spesial" tires that has accuracy size.
+/- % something....
Yes I understand that the smaller width tire must also be slightly taller to make up for the difference.

So you are running a staggered setup! What is the reason for those who wish to run square setups? Is it just for snow purposes?

I am looking to create a summer setup so I just wanted to confirm that I can go staggered with an even wider wheel/tire combo.

I don't see a link in your OP at all, just a picture of the front of a white bimmer which I'm assuming is your signature.

Hi
Important!

What my setup is not relevant for you IF something's goes wrong.
Safe philosophy for you is to go with the same setup front back.

Tip:
Exchange/ distribution transmission gearbox maybe need to change oil more frekvent than it says in BMW documents
Better safe than sorry....
Goes for the engine as well in my opinion.


Snow purpose:
My thougths on this is that in normal day drive you can not notice the difference with 225 vs 255.
I did se a test setup on different summer tires setup
The expert were able to tell a small difference in lap times.
1 or 2 sec in difference I think it was.
Search on YouTube and make your opinion on your own is my best advice

Nice day to you Sir

Ok, so if I understand your question correctly, you're asking whether the M-Perf side decal will fit correctly on the F36 given that 'ridge' that sticks out?

The answer is yes. The decal is shaped such that it will fit perfectly over the ridge. Here's a decal similar to the one I bought from ebay.

And here are the results on my F36:

Holy crap, thank you! Literally exactly what I was looking to confirm. You see on most every photo of a car with the decal, due to it being such a dark black, it hides the fact there is a ridge, making it appear as if the skirt is simply flat.

Thanks so much for the up-close and confirming it will work!

No worries, glad to help. It takes a bit of work to get apply the decals (couple hours), but they look much nicer on a white bimmer.

My next mods are likely to include: wheel spacers 12mm front and 15mm rear, air filter system upgrade (not sure what yet) and maybe a Kufatech active sound module (I'm not completely sold on that yet, I haven't seen one in the flesh). I am open to critic and suggestions!
What wheels are these?

Just drove her 1500 miles from South Dakota to Cali, and now in Vegas. We grabbed this shot outside of Park City Utah.

The v bar looks super gangster.
Love those cf side extensions too.

So I've been looking for a CPO 440GC with the track handling package, and there are literally none in the country. I definitely expected it to be difficult, but has anyone found this as a CPO or is this something that if I really want it, I'm just gonna have to bite the bullet and get it new?

This is for a car I'd want for the next 5-7 years. Slightly used CPO with cash is what I'd prefer, but again, not sure if possible.

The M3 might not be so fun for that, but at the same time might be just fine, and would definitely be more fun daily.

Not being able to test drive a 440 with adaptive has been a major bummer so far.

Does anyone in the thread regret not going for M3 and instead going with a 435/440 RWD?
