FINALLY! Never thought I would, but here are a few mods...

Just wanted to share a few mods I recently accomplished. Never thought I would, but it was just too irresistable...

-19" Powder Coated OEM rims purchased off of Ebay (w/TPMS $899)

-245/35 ZR19 FRONT and 275/35 ZR19 REAR Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Tires (good for the rains soon to come...)

-20% Tint on all windows

-Tinted Tail-lights (do-it-yourself kit $10)

-Tinted front reflectors (did it myself again with left over tint!)

I know the tinting on the tail lights and reflectors sound dangerous--but they would never remain if they didn't look professional, and they did! Proof: Had the car at E@RTC today and no one sneared!

Glad you upgraded to the 19 inch BBS stock rims. MHO, that is what M3 should have had standard and the 18 inch rims should not exist because they look way too small and the tire ends up look too "beefy".

Not to mention all the cars in M3 class come with stock 19 inch rims.

I have the same tires. You're in for a surprise when it comes to dry grip.

Haven't looked at specs, but what do you mean? Do they suck? I'm looking for all seasons and this was one of the posibilities. Thanks
