    Talking BMW E36 M3: A New Journey

    It's been a while since I have had anything to post up on here but yeah here it goes.

    Things in my life have started working themselves out and here I am with a new 1995 BMW M3. I am really starting to understand why these cars are so revered and have such a cult following.

    Anywho, I wasted no time sourcing a set of Style 66 Wheels in 17x8+20 all around and BC Racing Coilovers (Locking Collars Removed) I intend on bringing the rears down when I can roll the fender lips more flat. I hammered the rear fenders as much as possible since I didn't have access to a roller at the time but I do intdend on rolling it. This is just stage 1 and I am very excited! I wouldn't be posting in here without the help of all the guys over at Limitless Motorsports in San Bruno, CA. For those of you in the Bay Area who need low car friendly services, Limitless can't be beat.

    Onto some pics!



    Full Droop of the suspension: Not bad at all

    Getting ready for my new wheels to arrive, still don't know when. Ordered on Aug 9th, they said shipping takes 6-8 weeks and the first tracking notification I received was from August 21st so its already been about a month? I hope they get here soon, because when they do they are going to have no issues fitting!

    Rear fenders pulled slightly.

    Yeah what the hell. Those rear fenders came out way better than mine, I couldn't seem to get mine to roll flat and start pulling.

    Did you scrape the sealant crap out of there and cut them before rolling/pulling? The double wall was hard for me to work with.

    Didn't have to scrape out anything, initially I had hammered the rear lips flat, then rolled after hammering. No cutting involved!

    Removed my trunk today and swapped with a forum member's trunk with a mid rise wing

    Pretty easy to do actually, the trick is to bring a string or cord to help snake the harness through the trunk, without that it would have taken many hours.



    Success!



    Finally my wheels arrived from Japan 3 months later!



    From the Motherland!



    Rears on!



    All 4 on!


    Back down to earth! Needs a 5mm spacer in the rear but overall pretty happy with how it turned out!

    that looks great; I like the wheel choice! Are you planning to go stretched/cambered/flushed or keeping it performance oriented?
