much as i actually like the 18" m3 rims i wanna change to proper deep dish rears and get some stance going on
Yea those 18" M3 wheels don't suit the car really.

I wouldn't bother with the "butt strut", it doesn't do much other than ground out.

3.46 is perfect (IMO), but may feel a bit long if you're used to a 3.9! But it is a good all-rounder.

There's some Rondell 58s here, though the front is 8.5 ET13 and isn't going to fit straight away unless you lower and swap the top mounts (if not already).

Good work Pete, glad to see her being treated to all the finishing touches

I've had the 3:46 fitted to mine and can vouch its a complete transformation from OEM but doesn't compromise the car's ability to cruise happily. There are a couple of guys in the states who can supply for £400-£450 inc shipping.

As for the Recaros, I'm getting tempted to put some lightweights into mine but would want a bit more comfort than the SPGs provide.

Keep up the good work

Hi dan, yea I think I'll get a 3.46.. Or nearly tempted to go back to std 3.15 as I really don't think it'd make that big a difference but maybe it would..
