Talking tbone's 2013 Le Mans E92 *got no production #, but got mods* build thread

I have a '13 E92 in the order bank, but don't have a production number yet. Not sure if I'm crazy, bored, excited or a little of everything, but I've started accumulating mods for the car

2013 M3 Coupe
Lemans Blue Metallic
Palladium Silver/Black/Black Leather
Carbon leather Trim
DCT
Premium Package
Enhanced Premium Sound

Will be a slow build, but here we go...

1) Shoes

BBS LM-R (Amuse Offsets)
20x9 +8
20x10 +18
Tires TBD. I'm considering rebuilding this wheel into a 3-piece 20x10, 20x11 wheel w/ polished or chrome lips







2) Suspension

Car will be a daily driver....but you never know
KW V3
Front springs replaced with swift springs (10kg/560 lb) to start
GC race camber plates











3) 3D Design Pedals

You're off to a roaring start! No point in waiting around for the car to show up or else you'll be waiting even longer for parts. I'm dying for LM-Rs also. Was there a wait period for those or did someone have them in stock?

Thanks everyone for your nice words

Kwando: I bought the last set of this setup here in the US. Next shipment in a few months

Powerbeast: I'm curious why you say to leave the rims alone.

Pricey, but they are nice. I'm hoping a used dead pedal pops up here before my car arrives. Otherwise, I'll have to spring for a new one. I'm also eyeing the 3D design e-brake lever.

I agree with leaving the wheels alone. With such an aggressive offset, you will run into rubbing issues.

If I do go with a rebuild, front offset would be about equivalent 20x10 +20. On the rear, there's room for a 10mm spacer making net offset of +8 on the stock LM-R. I'd do a 20x11 +20 which would be like x10 +8

I'm not sure yet if I will go that route. But my reasons for considering it include:
1) wider rims
2) wider lips
3) being able to go more aggressive on rear without need to run a spacer
4) I'm not completely sold on the lip finish of the LM-R
5) flexibility in fixing a bent barrel/lip on a 3-piece wheel

Here's a pic of the rear setup on my Mercedes. I like aggressive setups

Looks like you're off to a great start in modding your car. Look forward to seeing it when the car arrives!
