New 09 E92 M3 owner

Hello all,
After searching for 3 months, I finally purchased a 09 M3 coupe and absolutely love everything about this car. The car is AW and loaded with every option. I have been wanting an M3 ever since I bought my new 08 135i. The car is beautiful and perfect in every way. I was kind of worried about going from manual to MDCT but after driving the car equipped with it, I have no regrets and enjoy driving it was much as I like driving manual transmission. I can understand why the reviews are good on this car and why everyone raves about it.

I still need to learn how to do a few things like launch control and program the garage door opener. After owning it for less then 2 weeks, I have already looked into doing a few minor cosmetic mods. Looking to get all the nice carbon fibre pieces, black grills, matte ZCP wheels, LCI tail light conversion and maybe the performance exhaust. I already order the tail lights woohoo. I will upload a couple of pictures when the weather is nice. I plan on going to some meets this summer. See you guys there.

Go with Nate@IND for all your exterior cosmetic items. Don't do what I did, mess around with cheaper competitors, and end up spending way more in the end in my search for perfect fitment.

<-- take a look at my car. They are excellent. Had a shop comment on how well balanced they were from the factory.

Well if you want true GTS specs, you need 19x9 +18, 19x10 +25. But you can easily go another 0.5" up on either of those widths and run similar offsets. I ran 255 fronts and 275 rear. Doing it again I will go 265 front and 295 rears. If you do go with GTS sized rears then you can also use a spacer. It's up to you. I converted to studs to give myself flexibility.

If you're in Alberta, then sure!

I'm located in Edmonton. I'll probably stick with OEM sizes and specs. I'm assuming stock oem 19" tires can be used.
