Very Nice

Question though: What's a shaved spoiler? Do you just mean "removed"?

yea...removed is probably the better term lol. last car I had to fill spoiler holes and re-paint hatch so I got used to the "shaved" terminology. You are right though

Thanks--Your car has influenced mine a little; like your clean lines and overall look!

Sweet. Figured that was the case.

And thanks. Always nice to hear good things about a car you've put effort into...

PS: LOVE your wheels... Really want to get a set - in the same finish you've got - but not cheap in Oz and there's really nothing wrong with what I've got

Yea those 313's are legit. BavX hooked me up with a nice set-no complaints at all. I talked to Brad@bavarianx.com on the phone--great guy, knows his stuff.

Yea I'd like to get blacklines down the road--my stockers cracked over winter and BMW just put brand new tails in last week so it's hard to justify the money on them when there's bigger fish to fry. It'll happen in time.

How much longer you laid up? It's gotta be frustrating/making you stir crazy by now.

Yea, not sure how much tho. Roads around can be rough, even in the summer--I'd like to do a moderate drop (+/- an inch) all around. ST Coils are what I was originally thinking but after installing the wheels I don't really want to mess with camber too much. M3 control arms is only thing I plan on doing for sure....re-evaluating my previous stance thoughts in the mean time.

Hoping to have headlights and control arms and midpipes done by Bimmerfest East.

that's rough man but getting back to work will take your mind off things. My sophomore year of HS I broke both feet (freak accidents within 2 weeks of each other) so I know your pain lol.

I think I've posted here about twice, but I am wondering how on earth you picked your rims with the infamous 135i brake dust. My wheels drive me crazy. Do you have a secret to keeping your supershiny rims clean?

I prefer cost effective "BBS"; no work in pulling/rolling fenders, non re-drilling Jap BBS to make it fit, and no freak outs if my shiny new wheels get dinged/chipped while driving. I paid 1/3 the price of real BBS and got the look I wanted out of a quality, reputable dealer in BavX. I can allocate the rest of the money I would have spent on products that actually make driving more enjoyable, i.e.->m3 suspension bits or bolt-ons

saying my ride is nice despite it being "fake"---thanks broski

Thanks for appreciating the shine!

The consensus option around here is Cool Carbon brake pads (I don't have them, or anything special for that matter--still stock under there) But any ceramic based pad is going to be quieter ( the annoying squealing drives me nuts and is next on my list of things to cross off) and produce a lot less dust than the stock ones. EBC Yellowstuff, Cool Carbons, and Stop Tech is what I'm weighing between. I have a few thousand miles left I can get away with the stockers but when I switch I'll give a write up review about whatever I choose--although I'm sure a quick search can pull up results instantly as this has been a problem since BMW thought to put 6 piston calipers on. Great stopping power and bite, but so much surface area to flake from

To each their own man. I'm refinishing a set of RS's for about $2300 all in. Light weight proven strength and 3 piece ftw. You take care of the wheels like you take care of your car and they'll be fine. If you're going to be upgrading your suspension I'd get some lightweight track wheels as well - lugging those things around the track would be risky.

No hate just some friendly criticism. Carry on

who said anything about the track? the coils are to dial in the drop that I want because I'm picky about the way it's lowered/stanced. While I may autoX it maybe a handful of times in the cars life, big maybe--it's not something I'm concerned about. Lap times are irrelevant to me.

and what's risky about going around a track with a wheel/tire combo that's approx. 2.65lbs lighter than my stock wheels when I weighed them during uninstall/install? I fail to see the danger in that for it to be "risky".

While RS is a great looking wheel and I can appreciate the deal you got on them; you are still $500 above my price in terms of investment, everyone has their own agenda and budget and preferences/thoughts regarding modifying a car. I have a daily driver and therefore my wheels see a lot of crap-tar, pebbles, brake dust daily, and potholes of NoE OH.

I can understand your stance on preferring a higher end wheel Wescuddles, and I'm not arguing or turning this thread into a wheel battle that resides in how far your wallet is willing to open.

Harlequin was just pointing out the douchy way you responded in an arrogant tone/manner, and I happen to agree. Especially considering how interested you were in my wheels when BavX requested pics of them:

Gotta remember where you came from to know where you are going! And more importantly, so you don't wedge your foot in your own mouth
