I have your twin. Great thread.

Quick question, why are you getting rid of the Vorsteiners?

Wheels are awesome, I just think IB looks better with a lighter color wheel. Silver ZCPs just look right withIB. But I'm most likely swapping to pressed graphite Te37sl.

Post some pics of your E90!

I had an e46 with the OEM ZCP wheels. I had them refinished in hopes of getting them a darker gunmetal color such as your Vorsteiners. The powder-coater really missed the mark and I was pretty unhappy with the shade of gunmetal that came out. Always regretted not leaving the ZCP style wheel in its OEM form. As you can tell, I'm an OEM+ guy. Food for thought if you are going to refinish your ZCPs.

I had an E46 ZCP in IB as well and the wheels were coated before I got the car and it never looked right. I'm an OEM+ guy as well which is why I'm selling these and going back to ZCPs. I sold my GTS ones for these so I'll have to source some. I may even get the replicas so I can have 19x10s all around. Your picture sold me on what I need to do so I appreciate you posting. I'm going kw sleeve kit as well. Then it'll be tune and brakes.

Which route are you going with a tune? Local shop or one of the advertisers on M3 Post?

I'm unsure at the moment. TTFS has a great price right now. Gintani BPM Evolve etc all have great reviews. It's really going to come down to who can make it as easy as possible with converting back to stock for maintenance/Warranty work.

having been here in your boat. I loved my TTFS tune but the customer service is just not there, running into issues my second time tuning with them was a massive headache, BPM came through for the win. quick and easy service. you are not going to make some earth shattering amount na but having the ablity to get help through issues was more important to me this go round. I am supercharged again on this new e90 with bpm as well.

Definitely consider BPM simply due to his customer service reviews. I'm the type of person who will pay premium for convenience, something my wife hates but when it comes to tuning and my vehicle it's high on my list. I don't expect to make anything incredibly powerful just want to get rid of CEL and optimize it a bit.

On another note, I want to take you up on your offer of healing with rod bearings after the new year

yeah I could see that as being annoying. I've been slacking on getting my car recoded to turn off my edc since I put the club sports on.

No problem at all man. Did you already order your bearings and bolts. I highly recommend doing the arp bolts. If you order from vac make sure to ask for the cleveite bearings not the oem bearings that are just coated. feel free to pm if anything.

Wheels are pending sale! Have a set of 19x10 ZCPs on their way with 265/35 MPSS front and 285/30 MPSS for the rear and new tpms sensors. Also have Alpine tune ready to get installed. Haven't decided on sleeve kit or springs. Going to wait til I get the new wheels installed to see. I'll also be swapping out majority of my gloss black accents to carbon fiber and adding a high kick rear spoiler. I'll update more once everything is done.

EnVe46 and Properstyle, I own a AW e92 M3 and live in Coral Springs. Let me know if you guys are down to meet up. I have yet to reach out to fellow enthusiasts and it would be cool to bounce ideas/experiences from each other.
Enve, I just read through your thread, great to watch your M come to life.

Was supposed to be a fun update hahaha

Took my car in to get square 19x10 M359s with new PSS 265/35 and 275/35, new tpms and a set of spacers to maximize everything. Install was fine but the shop found a few issues that need to fixed. So figured while it's there mine as well get everything addressed:

Power steering pump leaking from shaft
Valve covers leaking from the rear
Ac pressure low, Evap leaking

So I'm driving a V6 challenger while everything gets sorted. Can't complain as most should be covered by my Warranty and I don't like not addressing issue when they arise.

Couple of pics of the wheels without center caps. Can't wait to get her back and driving!

tires seem a bit large for the setup. typically this is done with 30 series not 35.

giving the back round color I'm assuming this is euroworks you went to?

Yup! Eurowerks is ran by a good friends, friend.

I wanted more tire and there is a thread on 19x10 squared with multiple people doing 35 profile, seems to be a common theme. Once I get it lowered properly, it'll complete the look Im going for.

Been waiting for this update! As mentioned I took the car in to get 19x10 M359s installed with new Tires and spacers. They found quite a bit of work needing to be done while it was there.

Both valve covers
Evaporator
Power steering pump
$5369 later!

Fast forward to today, got the car detailed to take some proper pictures of the new wheels. I'm loving the new set up and glad I went with the 35 profile tires. Very minor rub upfront and some room in the rear to maybe try a 12.5mm spacer rather than 10 but going to let it ride for now
