Thanks for the info. It's always great to see fellow m3's in the area.
I'm out in the Gainesville so PTuning is just sround the corner.
I'll have to give them a call.
You've got to get a lot of looks with the way that beast is look'n.

I completely agree. To each his own. I think your car looks great, just not exactly how I would do it. Of course my M is still vaporware so what so I really know.

Thanks--I'll probably do the Gintani rear section or Remus sport next spring. No plans for painted reflectors--I've had run-ins w/ VA State Police before over illegal lighting/modified reflectors, so the improved look isn't worth the risk to me.

Well, I see you have it on order, so it won't be vaporware for long

Springs: Eibach

Hopefully, I'll have better pics soon.











I must say that Frank and Josh at Klassen are the best. There were some issues in completing my order, but I think the true measure of a company is how it deals with problems rather than whether or not it maintains perfection. Frank and Josh were very attentive and helpful throughout the process, and even spent quite a bit of time after the wheels were delivered attempting to coach my first tire installer through installation (for some reason, my first installer could not get the front tires mounted --I eventually took the wheels and tires to another shop which got them mounted with no issues). Bottom line--the guys at Klassen care about their product and their customers. Also, I'd like to give a big "thanks" to Peter @ Wheel Experts, who was the vendor for my order - Peter was great, as always.
+100 on Klassen customer service.Frank told me my wheels I bought from him would fit and my shop and myself didn't agree but Frank was right,no fender rolling at all,just needed to run negative -1 camber and my Klassen wheels fit fine.These are the best wheels on the market in my opinion.Made from T07 forging material.Klassen FTW!!!!!!!!!
