^thanks but I already have like 6 sets of rims for my s2000's

Looking for a set of 19" BBS LM-R with Gun-Metal faces right now for the M3, have cash and ready to deal right now.

Next up on the list is Yellow Brembos and BMW Performance Seats, gotta wait for my Bday or another Father's Day.

I like the Volks too but they look a bit too tame for the street. May keep the Volks just for a track setup but definitely need something larger for street duty.

From my experience, M3 + ISF owners all seem to share the love for s2000's, GTR's, Supras, and NSX. The only other collector car I would like to own someday is a Stradale in yellow to complete my stable but that will have to wait, family first.

Amazing how fat the M3 looks next to my other rides....spent the weekend lowering the M3 a bit and adjusting the suspension.

The black roof really makes the car look more aggressive! Most of my past cars had CF/black vinyl roof too. My m3 is actually painted, not vinyl.

Wow, didn't expect to see you on here! Used to be on s2ki (as s14 to s2k) and here I am lurking for my possible next ride (m3). Loved your rio and gpw s2k and the nsx as well and I remember following all the builds.

Congrats on your m3 and I'm glad you still have your s2k's. I sold mine for a 335 and miss it everyday and might even try to get back in one if I can't get a m3.

^thanks for the kind words!

So after talking to a friend of mine, I decided to ditch the Recaro (great seat but just too wide as it occupies a lot of side *******. Picked up a new CLEK seat which has some revolutionary safety features and best of all it's got a narrow footprint so I can still put 2 passengers in the rear next to the baby if needed

Happy 1st Birthday to my little man since it's his first day he gets to ride forward facing, woohoo!

thanks

Still keeping an eye on your build man! Looking good (I do agree with your CSL trunk comment...just doesn't flow for me) and although you are looking for 19's I went ahead and got 20's.

How do you like the CLEK seat for the new baby? I was thinking of getting it for the E90 when I get it too but keeping the Recaro for Ethan.

I am on the look out for BBK too...interested to know why Brembo over StopTech or other brands?

Keep it going man! Looking good.

Michael

Currently we own 5 baby seats from pretty much every top mfr. out there and the Clek is the most recent purchase. I have to say this seat was built with the child's safety in mind ~ absolutely the BEST SEAT out there right now with so many features such as the energy absorbing foam, rigid sub structure, and the steel rods that protect the baby's head...this seat has it all! An added bonus is you can use this seat from rearward facing infant till they have grown out of the seat. I would say the only two negatives is this sucker is HEAVY (do not plan to use this as a travel seat! ) and the cost (you can't put a price on safety!)

I moved my Recaro to my wifey's CT200h since it's a bulky seat and she only carries one kid at a time. One thing to note however is the Recaro feels like a BBS forged wheel in terms of weight while the Clek is more like the Rota's! haha

So in my M3 I'm currently using the Clek for my younger son and my elder one wanted a purple seat so we got her the Radian RXT. Both the Clek and Radian advertise they are narrow enough for 3 seats across but I don't think it applies to smaller cars like the M3. Probably fit 3-across in a larger SUV or maybe the M5 back seat but as you can see in the picture, not the M3.

Brake wise I'm a loyal Brembo fan as I had this brand on my previous rides. My current 18" Volk setup is very compliant ride and lightweight but I think the M3 needs at least a 19" setup, don't want to go 20's to compromise the ride too much as I use this car mainly when I need to shuttle the kids by myself. We only take the family SUV's when my wife and/or parents need to tag along.

here's a fun pic of my daughter (she loves the M3)


and side by side you can see very little room in the middle unless you are a Monster!

Looks good! Thanks for the helpful info...I am a few months away from the car purchase and will probably use the Britax system that we used with Ethan for the new baby for now. I have been looking around so will keep the Clek in mind...it looks pretty darn nice!

Thanks for the info on Brembo too...been using Rotora for most of my cars in the past but was looking to get something a little better? The Rotora performs pretty well but feel like, for some reason, that the system I have has brake build up on the rotors which caused me to have to get a new set for up front but since then they are OK.

Thanks again!

We just got back from a Disney cruise and they make it very hard not to have all of their characters! We saw them at every corner we turned, the service really is top notch and they know how to treat the kids for sure! We have a very large Mickey riding shotgun in my wife's car so she can cruise in the carpool lane....j/k!

Most of my friends who have minivans are amazed I still get around town in the M3 but it's all about being organized. I can even fit my kids M3 push cart in the trunk if needed plus a stroller

P.S. I'm sure Sully and Boo are in my car somewhere!
