Looks awesome. Must be one of the best looking M3s in the bay areas. Would love to see and hear your car in person.

Thanks for all the comments. It took a lot experimenting and trials to get the look I wanted.

With that it left me with extra wheels with tires. Before this wheel I had a Klassen K8.2 20 inch wheel. If anybody is interested PM me.

For the 3.62 diff questions. My first mod was the diff and exhaust. With the diff, I could tell a big improvement. A lot more responsive especially in the low to mid range. The change on RPM's were not that much, maybe around 300 rpm. I will check my RPM at 70 mph and post it.

Very curious on your thoughts on the difference from stock, and if you debated the 3.45 ?

Again - very nicely put together car
I never considered 3.45 because I know I was getting 20's wheel and Dinan rep recomended it for 20 inch wheel

Help me out with a question. You made a number of performance enhancing mods like you are going to track the car (brakes, software etc..). Then you put on 20" wheels with tire sizes that will cause understeer, not to mention the 305 rears have to be heavy. What is your objective with these mods? Just curious. maybe you have a separate set of wheels for the track?

definitely one of the best looking wheels out there, nice mods, are those wheels in gloss charcoal or matte charcoal?
