Yeah, it's wrong. This was talked about somewhere, maybe not here.

It was on 265/35-18 Yokohamas. We discussed it several times in this thread - asterisk can mean the car competed on tires different from the tires they registered with.

I'll post pictures later, but I'm running 265s on the back of my car, and they're down to the wear bars after five driver-events (four events, one with two people in the car).

Not immediately obviously faster than the 275 Bridgestones they replaced, but I didn't compare them back-to-back. Speaking of which, Tire Rack says the 265 Yokohamas are as wide as the 275 Bridgestones, but they're definitely not.

For anyone interested, I have a Schroth Quick Fit Pro 4 point harness for the driver's side which was originally made for the Mini but also works for the E90/92 as well. This was before they developed the same model for the M3. Mine has black straps with black and yellow pads. These are designed to be DOT compliant (ie. you/EMS personel push one button and you are released). It latches into the seat belt receiver in the rear seat and the child safety seat support. A link is included below. It sells new for $400. $225 shipped and it is yours. Here is the link https://www.schrothracing.com/products/quickfit

New member here. I found this thread searching for FS-M3 content. I won my region's championship this year with my E46 M3 coupe (TRSCCA), but my wife will be having our baby in a month's time. I'm thinking about upgrading to an E90 sedan for the next season (more competitive, back doors, more modern). Just wanted to say this thread has been extremely helpful. I'm glad to see M3post is about as active for E9X as m3forum is for the E46 crowd. I'd love to meet some of the TVR and ETN guys at an event one day.

Currently comparing the merits of an 08 slicktop DCT with all maintenance done (including bearings), versus an 11.5 ZCP slicktop manual with all maintenance done except bearings.

With the ZCP you'll get the extra 1/2" of wheel width front and rear and the lower springs. Also note that a 2011 ZCP slicktop 6MT is the rarest example of the E90 M3 there is...at least here in the US.

Meaning it'll probably hold value a little better I take it. I should also factor that into account. The premium at current prices isn't enough to deter me either.

You can find me at TVR events. Looking forward to meeting you
