Man, makes me wish I had done LM's instead of the LM-R's!! Nice. Any rubbing in the rear with that tire setup lowered that much. Sweet ride!!

Thanks justin, there was minor rubbing with this stance on turns with the 285 rears, but i havent got an alignment yet and i believe shaving down the rear bumper bolt would fix the rubbing issue i believe.

Gettin ready for winter so decided to take off the Lm's and put on my winter wheels: 19 inch zcp reps courtesy of Eric and Tam at supreme power mounted on Bridgestone blizzaks 245/40/19 and 275/35/19. Reason i went with 19's was because i was limited in the selection of winter wheels that cleared my brembo 380/380 kit. And reason i went with reps is because im saving up for that bigger purchase in the spring

Following are pics off my phone:

That is one sexy looking winter setup! Mine looks so ugly with it's extremely high offset and narrow tires, haha.

Do you plan on raising it for the winter as well?

Well its been a good winter so far in terms of not having a lot of snowstorms in the northeast, but its also been a good winter for modding, After much research and deliberations i went with the ESS Vt2-600 kit, customer service from roman@ess has been bar none fantastic as he answered all my questions and was patient with all the questions i had regarding the kit. If you know me from the s2k forums, ive dealt with a lot of vendors and roman is on the top of my list for great customer service. I also have to thank izzy@img who made this kit happen, and that i needed this kit like "oxygen" i truly did, he showed me the light, thank you bro. I also gotta thank, well maybe not since he put a hole in my pocket , jk, my good friend gixxer_kidd, thai. If you dont remember our 20 inch lm shoot back in november i was the only non-supercharged car the following is the link: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=616650
I didnt want to drive his supercharged car because i knew i would have to have this kit, well lone and behold i had to drive his car at times during the shoot as he was shooting our cars. After that meetup and talkin with chris and jeff also about there ess kits, supercharging my car sparked/ignited a light in my mind Well fast forward to this day, and a ess vt2-600 kit is on my front step courtesy of fedex, , here are a couple pics for now, still need to get manifold painted and hoping to do install this week:




Heres also a pic of a little project me, thai, and our good buddy jesse did over the winter, used 3m gloss black vinyl:


Stay tuned for more parts to come...

I have been away from the forums for quite some time, but decided to see what's going on. I come up to this thread to read the awesome news. Congrats Rich on the new kit! Is it installed?

And lol blame? It's more like THANK us after you feel the forced induction on the M!

Thumbs up

Looking nice! Love the black rims. Considering any carbon fiber exterior mods? BMW Performance CF Mirror Caps and a BMW Performance CF Rear Deck Spoiler would add a nice touch.
