They are not too heavy and seem to be built well, so I think they would do well as track wheels.

Goodluck
Thanks for the info batman. I will start looking into the costing of this wheel package as a solution to my track wheel requirement.

Sounds good. Would like to get a meet soon. I think my suspension will go on in the next week or so, but summer wheels will wait until april.

My m3 isn't my only vehicle so if it snows (which it probably will), I'll just have to roll in my truck for a little longer. I'm like a little girl when it comes to this stuff. I've had my new wheels sitting in my garage for the last two weeks as I'm waiting on my suspension. I'm having BMW Gallery install my springs, and for the alignment they typically want the factory rims, as their alignment tools hook up directly to the wheel. As soon as the suspension is on, then the wheels, and my other mods should be arriving a.s.a.p.

We can organize an informal gtg in mid april!!!

I think Mid-April will be good timing.

Are you VWEvo on beyond? I have been following your Wheel reveal thread. Look forward to seeing them on the car!

They kinda dicked me on my deal a little, so when I complained to the manager he asked what he can do to make it up to me. I said, install my lowering springs and alignment for no charge. He said no prob!!!

On my E90 330i, they charged me $300 if that's any help. I got quoted by most shops for $400, so its a a no brainer to have it done by the dealership.

$300 is cheap!

Why do you choose to go to the NW instead of the South? Better service?

Just install, but please call the dealership to confirm. That's what they charged me 2 years ago on my e90 330i
