You shouldn't have any issues. If you do please let me know!

Atspeed in Hanover, MD has a Cayman S in their shop with a 3.8 swap, 440hp and 911s for dinner.

Would love to have that power!! Unfortunately will be buying a house in the near future so that would have to wait.

Vibration might be lower control arms. The liquid-filled bushings wear out and cause vibration in the 45-60mph range. The E39s are known for this. Just a thought in case the wheels don't fix the problem.

it's not an E39, it's a E30
E30 with E39 wheels to be exact
and i didn't have any issues with the old wheels
so i know its because of the hub adapters
the E39 has 74.1mm hub
E30 has 72.5mm hub

so i need these small hub adapters that fill in the gap
the ones i had from ebay look damn cheap
the ones i got from sonic tunining look much sturdier
well built
just the weather hasn't been cooperating lately for me to put them on

Pat - My Jag is great, loving it... Except the tix I got on rt. 50 n Arcola provided by our States finest, he thought I did an unsafe lane change...It's too eye catching n loud. Your new red P car will get the same attention, hopefully not from LE. I can't wait to see it, we should set up a HH in our area w/ a bunch of car peeps.
