Hi tristanpaglia,
Looks great lowered. Any problems,how's the ride?
Your Co-Driver is a good idea as it can also act as a Guard Dog, haha.
What are your Wheel and Tire Measurements/Sizes ?

Nope, the car ride is so different now even compared to the H&R springs. A lot stiff which I like and no bounce.
My rims are 20x9 et 35 and 20x10 et 40. The front is pretty much maxed out but the rear, can probably fit a 10.5. The offset is flush which I love.

You could try but just set aside a day for it. And no I fought with them so I didn't end up paying more lol.

My rims are 20x9 et 35 and 20x10 et 40. I rubbed a little on the inside of my fender but the plastic melted off so no more rubbing haha. I can't roll my fenders since I have the plastic trim around the wheel wells so I don't have anything to roll.

I'm running 245/35R20 in the front and 275/30/R20.
My tires are Bridgestone re760 sport. Great looking tires and lots of grip.

Hi tristanpaglia,
Your Trim looks great Wrapped. Would like to do that to my Black Trim.
1) Whats that Black Trim called?
2) What is the best Way and Procedure to get the Trim off without damaging the clips or what holds them in place.

Haha I would if you were local. It's just the black trim in the car. Some people have the wood trim. To take them out just use plastic prying tools that are made for interior trim. They are just held in by clips.

Which Apex wheels are you thinking about getting? I have a set of 19" EC-7s on my car right now if you want to see what they look like. They are extremely light weight but look factory.

The steering wheel with the m3 act paddles make the car feel so much nicer. Also the alcantara feels good on the hands.
The stud conversion will be installed the coming spring when I plan to track the car.
Need the snow to go away
