I never woulda imagined clicking this thread would direct me to you! Beautiful rims man with those red accents!

congrats on the M3!
haha, that is a coincidence. My pics are on wheeldudes site also. E92 fitment on E46's with a drop are priceless.

I was originally looking for an E46 ///M but when I found this E92 I couldn't pass up the deal.

Nice. I just wish I had your version of I-Drive and It will cost me a fortune to upgrade/retrofit.

You know, I had the older version on my 335i and I really wanted to upgrade it too, but after I got the CIC in the M, I really was pretty disapointed, the only benefits to it are 1. It looks pretty 2. You can get smartTV and watch movies while driving. Other then that its really nothing more then just a better looking menu system. I heard you can also listen to music via bluetooth but I think thats just the newest models. Also I personally think the older system makes more sence as far how its organized. But if you do decide to upgrade I do beleive there is a member on here that sells the whole kit, but the job it self is pretty extensive.

Nice rides. I always love real world stories about long term reliablility of BMWs. You hear so many stories the other way, because people rarely bring up non news, but anytime there is a problem it's F(#King BMW and their sh#((y reliability, LOL.

I have a feeling the e9X M3 will be known for solid reliability in the long run.

I hear what you're saying....Who knows...It might not be worth pursuing but we'll see.

I have 250k miles on my E46, and I saw a thread on another forum where a guy has 230k miles on his E60 ///M5 with minimal problems, so I agree that it's safe to assume that the E9X ///M will be here in the long run.

I bought swift springs along with Macht Schenell Spacers 15mm/12mm from EAS and had them installed yesterday. The spacers definitely improve the look/stance IMO.

The ride is slightly lowered but definitely noticable the minute you get in the car. Ride quality is close to stock but a little tighter which to me is better and my EDC is still fully functional. I definitely feel MORE PLANTED TO THE ROAD which is hard to achieve in an E9x ///M. I am very happy with these springs and spacers. Thanks EAS. Don't be fooled by the front wheel pic. Even though the front still has some wheel gap it is noticably lower by an inch.
